No Headphone Jack? Tips for using an iPhone/iPhone.
Apple are set to announce their new iPad Pro in October 2018, and rumour has it that this will be their first iPad to ship with no headphone jack.
Apple remove the headphone jack from the iPhone back in 2016 to much criticism from users and the industry, however two years later, it seems most users have made their peace with the move, and have adapted to a world with, er, adapters!
Whether you are for or against the decision, it seems inevitable that the 3.5mm headphone jack may be on its way out for many devices, including the range of iPads.
In this video, I give you some practical tips for using your device without a 3.5mm headphone connection.
Note – I don’t mention Bluetooth or wireless solutions in this video. They are a viable alternative, but personally I have found the latency or “lag” associated with them too much of an issue, especially for recording.
My key tips are:
• Use a pair of lightning headphones
• Use a lightning to 3.5mm adapter
• Use a USB Sound Card/Hub solution
• Use an iRig or similar interface that uses a lightning connection
• Use a Lightning to USB camera adapter to convert to a USB port
• Use a USB audio interface like the Steinberg UR12
