FCC Set To Enforce Hearing Aid Mandate…..Unless You Are Apple

February 18th is the date the FCC can begin to enforce its 50% rule when it comes to handset manufactures and hearing aide compatibility, unless of course you’re Apple and we’re talking about the iPhone. You can read the complete article here on RCRNEWS.com . It seems the FCC has granted Apple and the iPhone immunity under the “de minimis exemption“. This exception was intended to protect “small” manufacturers that produced only a handful of handsets. Should the behemoth that is Apple fall under this category? We will let the FCC make that decision, but if you ask us the spirit of this exemption was not to protect the Apple’s of the world. The FCC stated they will not actually begin to enforce this law until 2 months after February 18th.
