On July 9, 2018, ReSound released an update to the ReSound Smart 3D app (version 1.2.2). The big news with this release is the addition of the Optimize MFi connection. Optimize MFi connection is an optional setting that is intended to improve connection and stability of audio streaming, and optimize performance for users switching between iOS devices. Visit the ‘More’ menu within the app to find the Optimize MFi connection function. Since this is an optional setting, there are several factors to consider before activating it. The Optimize MFi connection feature does disable some other features built into the ReSound Smart 3D app.
Optimize MFi connection is defaulted ‘Off’ in the app. If a patient reports connection or streaming issues, they may choose to turn this feature on. If the patient does not report any connection issues and desires the full benefit of Find my hearing aid the Optimize MFi connection should remain off. If the patient is an active Apple Watch app user, and isn’t experiencing connection issues, we also suggest that they do not turn on the Optimize MFi connection option.
