Question: with iPhone 8 and Hearing Aids
I am relieved to find others are having Bluetooth issues because that gives me hope that Apple is working on a solution. I upgraded from an iPhone 6+ to an 8 and have never had problems with the connection between my ReSound Cala 8 hearing aids until switching to iPhone 8. I do every single update as soon as it’s available but nothing has helped. I’ve rebooted, tried forgetting and repairing, every suggestion I’ve been able to find to no avail.
I depend on my hearing aids to talk on the phone. When I answer the phone and it takes 10-15 seconds before I can hear the caller, I risk losing my clients. I’m going back to Costco and plead my case to let me return the 8 and get a 7 instead. I spent over an hour at the Apple store last weekend. They ran diagnostics, paired it with a Bluetooth device, and said it was not a problem with the phone. But I didn’t have a problem with my 6+. I’m extremely disappointed with Apple for not acknowledging this problem and offering a buy out or some other solution.
