Apple iOS 12 will add a feature that turns the iPhone into a directional microphone called Live Listen. This feature has been available in Made for iPhone hearing aids for many years, allowing people with hearing problems to better listen to conversations around them.
With the Live Listen feature, your iPhone can be used as a remote microphone, and you can place the iPhone on the other side of the conference table or on the other side of a crowded room, and then send the sound directly to your ear through the AirPods headset. Some hearing aid companies, such as Starkey, can even have microphones to record conversations.
Apple did not provide more details on this feature. This feature will be released with the official version of iOS 12 later this year.
