    The use of Apple Airpods has been on the rise ever since their introduction. The convince that comes with the wireless device has made it a mist have for many iPhone users. However, with the introduction and growth of the Live Listen feature, there is a risk of conversations being spied on.

    With the September release of the iOS 12 update, there was an addition of Live Listen on the Airpods. It was initially released as a hearing aid under the Made for iPhone hearing aid program.

    Live Listen acts as a kind of magnifying glass for sound. You can switch on Live Listen and use it to zoom in on audio, perhaps audio that is too quiet, or that is lost in a noisy environment.

    You can also use this feature as a walkie talkie to have a conversation with a human without having to remove your headphones.
