When it comes to leading the charge in orality, Apple has played a big part.
- Podcasting isn’t called podcasting because of another iPod.
- Until recently, Apple has been the primary directory for podcasts.
- Siri was first to ground in the audio assistant market back in 2011.
- iTunes, rest its soul, was a dominant player and audio organization tool
And now, as a by-product of the importance of audio, comes Apple’s Hearing Health in their latest WatchOS 6.
The feature – will listen to the surrounding decidable levels and warn you to take an audio chill pill.
I wonder if there’s more coming down the pipeline? Self-testing tools. Adding audio fatigue levels into screen time?
