I got really excited when I heard this news about a feature of iOS 12. 

A feature of iOS12 not announced at the latest WWDC event is a feature called Live Listen.

Live Listen was a utility previously reserved for use with hearing aids, but the new iOS version allows you to use it to listen via AirPods (Apple's Bluetooth earbuds) to the audio received by your iPhone's microphone.   :o

This sounds like a very affordable alternative to a bi-cross hearing aid for people trying to cope with one-sided deafness.  :)
If you have a compatible iPhone, the AirPods cost about $160. 

I've included a link to the article where I discovered this.  iOS 12 is predicted to be available during September 2018, the Beta version should be available 6/26/18.
