The Apple Research app has been updated, with it now including a new "Speech in Noise" test for the Apple Hearing Study along with a survey for the Apple Heart & Movement Study to examine the effects of COVID-19.
Issued on Tuesday, version 1.3 of the Apple Research app offers a selection of bug fixes and improvements, but the main changes revolve around two of the studies powered by the app: the Apple Hearing Study and the Apple Heart & Movement Study.
For the Apple Hearing Study, the "Speech in Noise" test intends to help understand the hearing ability of study participants under a variety of circumstances, including the presence of background noise.
Launched in November, the Apple Hearing Study in association with the University of Michigan aims to determine how long-term sound exposure can impact stress levels and cardiovascular health. This included studying whether receiving Health app notifications when loud sound exposure is detected can motivate users to modify their listening behavior to protect their hearing.
The update to the Apple Heart & Movement Study is in the form of a new survey, which is offered to help "understand the impact of COVID-19 on daily life."
