Most of the newer iPhones require a lightning adaptor to plug in a neckloop. I bought my first one at the Verizon store for $30. Found them on Amazon for $7. It’s one more accessory, but is well worth it. I think that new iPhone input jack started with the iPhone 6 or 7, so most now will need that adaptor.

Louise - I do not have an iPHone so I don't know if they have a jack for earbuds or not nor whether the model you have could stream the sound through Bluetooth. The app is supposed to be compatible with Bluetooth headphones so it would seem like your phone should stream the sound to your hearing aids in place of headphones.
If your hearing aids have telecoils and your iPhone has a jack for earbuds then you could use a neckloop plugged into the phone in place of earbuds. If you don't have a neckloop they are available online from vendors like www.Diglo.com Amazon or others. They retail for $40 to$90.. You can often pick up a used one on Ebay for peanuts. I recommend getting an amplified version for the extra boost it can give a signal and for the hands free use thanks to the built in mic.
Your hearing care provider should be able to tell you if your phone would be compatible with the app so I suggest you download the app on your iPHone and then see your provider to walk you through the process.

Is there any way to use amihear WITH hearing aids instead of earphones? I still struggle in all noisy situations and would love to try it if I can connect through my aids that are paired to my iphone.
