Imagine a concert, a bar or a party. The music, background conversations, or other sounds have become so loud that you can not even remember.
Exposure to loud noises is annoying and can damage your hearing. But how do you know if the environmental noise at a certain location is actually loud enough to endanger your health? Use watchOS 6 to launch Apple's noise app.
The Noise app lets you check the ambient noise to see the decibel level and determine if the noise is so loud that it damages your hearing. You can also set a decibel threshold in the app and receive notification when ambient noise reaches or exceeds that value.
The only drawback is that only Apple Watch Series 4 and Series 5 will run on which watchOS 6 supports the Noise app. However, if you have one of these two devices, you can set up the Noise app on your iPhone or directly on your watch. Let's try it in both directions.
