    How to set up iPhone with lapel microphone?

    With the SYNCO wireless lapel microphones for iPhone or Android phone, interviews are able to talk with ease and a free movement.

    Use the 3.5mm headphone jack port for iPhone older models

    Why do certain lav microphones function with your smartphone while others do not? There are 3.5mm jacks on digital wireless lavalier microphone system, like SYNCO G2(A2) and P2L. Nevertheless, only a few of them are compatible with the headphone jack on the iPhone SE. An iPhone cannot be used with a microphone that has a TRS jack. But, a lav mic with a TRRS jack will function. Thankfully, there are adapters available that will allow you to use your iPhone with a TRS connector. To ensure that the wireless lapel microphone for iPhone will function with your phone, just check the product information.

    Connect the mic through the lightning socket for iPhone 7 or later

    You won't have an earbuds jack if you have an iPhone 7 and the after ones. Instead, what you get would be a special lightning connector. Cheap lavalier mics with lightning connections rather than 3.5mm small jack jacks have just been available. They include an internal cable with a lightning connection and are compatible with all models of iPhone up to and including the latest iPhone 14 now, which has a lightning connector. 

    Buy the necessary adapter cables for converting the interface

    But if your mic only features a TRRS port like SYNCO G2(A2) wireless microphone for video camera, you should be able to use the lightning-to-headphone adapter that came with your phone to record using a lav mic. Connect your 3.5mm TRRS microphone jack after inserting the adapter into your iPhone's lightning port. You'll also need a TRS to TRRS adaptor if your microphone has a TRS mic connector. 


    One of the simplest methods to create videos is to use your iPhone as a camera. A cheap lav mic is one of the few affordable accessories you simply need to start. Try to make things as straightforward as you can before investing in pricey equipment like video lights, elaborate backdrops, and a gimbal. All you need to start producing quality YouTube or marketing videos is your smartphone and lapel microphones for iPhone that are reasonably priced.
