The iPhone has amazing features to save the life of its user, especially for those who suffer from hearing impairment, as this device can distinguish important sounds while operating the earphones.
This feature is very useful in general for everyone, even if you are wearing headphones, as it will be able to alert you to serious danger surrounding you.
According to the American technology giant, “Apple”, “the iPhone can recognize certain sounds such as a crying baby, a doorbell or an alarm, and notify you when it recognizes these sounds.”
You can also add custom sounds to your device to know it, according to what was reported by the British newspaper “The Sun”.
That means your iPhone can warn you if a smoke alarm goes off or your home has broken glass — even if you have headphones on. But Apple warns about this.
“Don’t rely on iPhone to recognize voice in circumstances where you might be harmed or injured, in danger and emergency situations, or in transit,” Apple said.
How to enable voice recognition on iPhone:
Go to Settings > Accessibility > Voice Recognition and turn it on.
Then wait for the file to complete downloading (you may need to be connected to WiFi for this to work).
You can then tap Sounds and choose the sounds you want your iPhone to recognize, such as fire, smoke, dogs, cats, and more.
It is also possible to add custom sounds to your device, just tap on Custom Alarm, Custom Appliance or Doorbell.
Enter a name and then have your iPhone ready to listen to it.
