The Noise app is proactive versus reactive: Instead of just hoping hearing loss doesn’t happen to you, you can take care to monitor the environments you’re in and prevent hearing loss from happening in the first place. For example, if you’re at a football game and Noise pings you, you can grab some protective earplugs. As the sound levels change, so does the decibel meter, so you get an accurate picture of what’s going on. And you can always take the ear plugs out if and when the decibel level goes down. If you’re worried about your Apple Watch recording the environment you’re in, don’t be. Apple says the app doesn’t record or save any audio.How can I get the Noise app?This app isn’t live just yet: It’s part of Apple’s WatchOS 6 beta, and should roll out to everyone in fall 2019.

Most people don’t notice subtle changes to their hearing until it becomes significantly more difficult to hear, such as having trouble hearing during a conversation when you’re right next to someone. Often, people only seek treatment when they notice changes like that, and at that point, the damage has been done. • What is Apple’s new Noise app?apple-watchos6-noise-app-060319-inline-jpg-large Apple Available only for the Apple Watch, the Noise app detects loud environments and notifies you when it thinks you may be at risk for hearing damage. The app uses the watch’s built-in microphone to measure the decibels at concerts, theaters, parades, construction zones and other loud situations that generally aren’t good for your ears. If you think you may be in an at-risk environment, you can open the app and check the decibel meter, which adjusts in real time. But, you don’t even remember to open the app in loud situations — Noise will automatically notify you if the sound around you is 90 decibels or higher. That’s about as loud as a lawn mower or a motorcycle driving past you on the street.How does hearing loss happen?There are three types of hearing loss:Conductive (interferes with the way sound waves travel through the ear)Sensorineural (results from damage to the ear or nerves within the ear)Mixed (combination of the two) Common causes of hearing loss include damage to the inner ear; buildup of earwax, dirt or other substances; ear infections and ruptured eardrums. Exposure to loud environments can exacerbate hearing loss, and Apple built the Noise app to help limit your exposure.Read more: Apple announces new menstrual cycle and activity trackers at WWDC 2019 As Apple continues pushing the Apple Watch as a health device, expect it — and other Apple products — to become more health-centric as developers continue to find new ways to make tech work for people, not against them.  Apple Watch Series 4 2 WWDC 2019: A quick visual recap of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote Apple See It See It Jun 30 • iOS 13 and iPadOS public betas: How to download and install them now $349 Tags WWDC 2019 Apple Event reading • Apple Watch Noise app: Everything you need to know Apple WatchOSlast_img

first_imgThe Air Force’s target date for restoring readiness to levels that existed prior to sequestration has been postponed once again, with the objective still remaining more than a decade away, officials told the House Armed Services’ Readiness Subcommittee last week.“The 2025 timeframe was based on some assumptions that haven’t panned out,” said Gen. David Goldfein, the Air Force’s vice chief of staff. “We assumed we wouldn’t be increasing our activity in Europe, in the Pacific and in Iraq and Syria. As long as that demand signal is there, what you’ll see is a continual, rolling eight-to-10 year delay in getting to full spectrum readiness. Our prediction is that for the next two-to-three years, we’ll probably be able to just hold our own,” said Goldfein, reported Federal News Radio.Currently, only about half of the Air Force’s combat units are sufficiently trained for conflict against high-end adversaries. One of the primary hurdles preventing air crews from regaining desired readiness levels is that instead of conducting training missions, units are committed to carrying out missions overseas that don’t provide the appropriate experience.“What that means in the F-16, for instance, is that air crews that are trained and designed to do high-end peer-to-peer conflicts in a contested environment are actually spending most of their time flying counterinsurgency missions, and they lose their skills over time,” Goldfein said.The service also is trying to cope with a deficit in maintainers needed to work on next generation F-35s, which are slowly being introduced into the fleet.“We’ve offered numerous retention incentives so that our older maintainers will stay in, but we’re still digging a hole because we have a force structure we can’t divest,” said Lt. Gen. John Cooper, the deputy chief of staff for logistics, engineering and force protection. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img
