Microphone for iPhone
September 8, 2021 5:52 AM   Subscribe

I am filming some informational videos with my iPhone 11 and I need a microphone to assist with sound quality.

I've filmed videos using the iPhone audio before and I want to up my game - last time we got too much background noise from crickets, etc.

A lapel mic that is wireless, user-friendly and no more than $100-150 is what I'm imagining but i am open to other suggestions as well.

Here’s a possibility from B&H PhotoVideo. They specialize in AV gear; they’ll even answer questions on the phone before you buy. They observe all Jewish holidays so they’re closed until Thursday September 9.

Best answer: For iphone, the usual recommendation is IRig Mic or for lavaliers, iRig Mic Lav

Response by poster: The iRig Mic Lav looks great, but the iPhone 11 doesn't have a headphone jack, just the lightning connector (grrrr) and it looks like that's not compatible.

Best answer: Apple makes a Lightning-to-3.5mm-headphone-jack adapter. And, surprisingly, it's not too terribly priced.

Best answer: iRig Mic Lav works through the lightning to audio dongle.
