Apple is recalling its hearing aids because of a potential safety issue, the company said Tuesday.
The company said that because it doesn’t have any hearing aids in stock, it has been forced to replace them with Apple’s new Apple Hearing Protection Technology, which will work with hearing aids and other hearing-impaired devices.
The hearing aids will be recalled as soon as they are made available in stores, according to a statement from the company.
The hearing aids are sold as hearing aids through the company’s website and through AppleCare.
If you purchase one of these hearing aids online, it will be replaced free of charge.
AppleCare is a service that Apple offers for consumers that helps them get their hearing-aids repaired and reimbursed.
The hearing aid recall is Apple’s second recall this year, following a similar one in January that affected more than 10 million hearing aids.
