So far, almost of all the discussion of wearable tech associated with Apple has centered on the so-called "iWatch," Apple's take on the current interest in smart watches that recently failed to ignite with the launch of Samsung's Galaxy Gear. But according to a new report from Reuters, that's not the first form of wearable tech partly designed by Apple that we'll see. What is? Believe it or not, a hearing aid.
This could be big. The hearing aid industry is worth around $15 billion, which, as Cult of Mac notes, is around one-third of the money wrapped up in the global tablet market. Apple is working with Denmark's GN Store Nord, the world's fourth largest maker of hearing aids, to develop a device called the ReSound LiNX with technology similar to Bluetooth that will stream voice and music from iPhones without the need for another device.
