A note about the Belkin Lightning Splitter:

This lightning splitter has been tested with the Mevo app and we have found that it works only with certain workflows.

 

It does work with the TRRS-to-lightning adapter that is included with iPhone 7. It also works with a lightning-to-USB adapter when using a USB audio interface.

It does not work when directly connecting lightning audio sources and adapters.

What is a TRRS plug?

The key factor determining if your audio source is compatible with the iPhone headphone jack is the type of plug it has. It must exactly match the form factor seen in recent versions of the Apple earbuds with the built-in microphone, as pictured here:

The red arrows above are pointing to three chrome rings and a chrome tip separated by three much thinner rings. This is referred to as a TRRS plug (tip-ring-ring-sleeve). This is the correct type of audio input that iOS devices can accept.

iOS devices cannot accept plugs that only have 2 or 3 chrome rings, such as those pictured below:

 

A TS (tip-sleeve) and TRS (tip-ring-sleeve) plug. These are not supported as audio inputs.

We are continually testing more products and will update this list as we find more compatible audio sources.
