In this video, we cover how to connect an external microphone to your Apple iPhone that only has a lightning input adapter.
The parts we need are as follows: (Disclosure: the following links are affiliate links to Amazon, and I will receive a small portion of any sales that occur if you click through and buy)
- Lightning to headset adapter – I recommend this aftermarket adapter, a bit cheaper than the OEM – https://amzn.to/35JPT9A
- TRS to TRRS Adapter – My recommendation is the Rode SC4. https://amzn.to/2MRj1TC
- External mic – Any mic is fine, in this video I am using the Rode Video Mic Pro (a bit expensive, $180 but mounts directly to a DSLR with a shoe as well as to a tripod) https://amzn.to/33ODaAU but I also use a giant squid omnidirectional lavalier/lapel microphone if I want to record just my voice on the go – https://amzn.to/2P45hI3
Have the best. day. ever.
