OK, so listen up… A new glimpse into the Apple Hearing Study reveals some insights worth hearing. Conducted by the University of Michigan and launched in 2019, this study is a big deal because it’s digging into tinnitus—when people hear noises that aren’t really there. They’ve found out loads, like a whopping 77.6% of folks have experienced tinnitus at some point! Even more interesting, as people get older, the chances of hearing these noises every day shoots up, especially for those over 55. This massive study isn’t just for kicks; it’s vital for understanding and hopefully managing this common yet puzzling condition. Apple’s own hardware, from the iPhone to Watch, all get involved with protecting hearing.

University of Michigan researchers have today shared some initial findings from the Apple Hearing Study launched back in 2019 – one of the largest studies of tinnitus ever carried out.
