How Do I Use an External Microphone With My iPhone XS?

I want to be able to record some short educational videos for both our team and for customers and want to use my iPhone XS to do that.

I have an external lapel microphone with the standard 16mm plug and want to know what cables/adapters people use with the iPhone or if indeed it can be done?

    I’ve never had luck with any of those. I’d read the reviews at Amazon and maybe try one and see if it works. If not, try another. It may take some time to find a good one.

    OK. Thanks Gary.

    Hi again Gary,

    I just bought a Rode smartLav+ microphone and plugged it into my iPhone XS using the Apple USB-C to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter and it worked perfectly.

    Just thought I should let you know so it’s available for others who may be looking for a solution.
