How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

I can hear audio from bluetooth headsets on my iPad/iPhone, but I can’t record audio in Applications from the headset. Even the sample “SpeakHere” application doesn’t record audio from the headset.

Is there a reason audio out works seamlessly but audio in doesn’t work? I’m trying to use an Aleph Jawbone headset.

By default audio sessions don’t support audio input via a bluetooth headset. It has to be explicitly accounted for in the code (which isn’t true for bluetooth audio output).

That probably explains why lots of apps you’re trying aren’t supporting your headset: the developers haven’t considered the edge case. The SpeakHere example code provided by Apple also doesn’t support Bluetooth input (nice if it did, right?).

Here’s the sample code Apple give in the docs to enable bluetooth input (assuming you already have an audio session):

Hope that helps!

Theres a way to do this, however you must have a jailbroken iDevice (I only know that it works for the iPhone.) Open Cydia and search for an app called “Bluetooth Mono SBSettings”, download and install that onto your device, and you ought to be able to not only record audio from a bluetooth headset, but also hear sound through the headset that you would normally hear as if you were wearing headphones. This works on any (as far as im aware of) bluetooth headset. I have an iPhone 3g, and i have a Motorola H390 as my headset. I hope it works!

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Recording audio from a Bluetooth microphone isn’t something that iOS can do out of the box, but that doesn’t mean it’s not entirely possible. With a little help from a third-party app, you can use a wireless headset and record your voice through that if you need to.

The app you’ll need is called Audio Memos, and it costs just $0.99 in the App Store.There’s a free version too, but it doesn’t come with the Bluetooth features. There’s also the Pro version available for $9.99, but you won’t need if all you want is the Bluetooth capabilities.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Once you have the app downloaded and installed, open it up and click on the gear settings icon in the bottom-left corner.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Next to “Use Bluetooth mic”, tap on the toggle switch to enable the feature. The switch will turn green.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Tap on “Done” in the top-right corner to save the settings and go back to the main screen.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

From there, you can connect your Bluetooth microphone or headset to your iOS device and the app will automatically recognize it as a recording device and use it when you start recording.

Of course, keep in mind that recording audio through a Bluetooth microphone won’t get you the same quality as a wired microphone, so if you can, always try to plug a microphone directly into your iPhone or iPad using the headphone jack or Lightning port.

I can hear audio from bluetooth headsets on my iPad/iPhone, but I can’t record audio in Applications from the headset. Even the sample “SpeakHere” application doesn’t record audio from the headset.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipadMake sure you use the right cable.
Photo: Charlie Sorrel/Cult of Mac

However old your iPhone is, it records great audio. You can use it as a dictaphone, to make field recordings of ambient sounds, to “tape” music, and even sample everyday noises and make music from them. But how do you do it? How do you hook up, say, a portable keyboard or an MP3 player to your iPhone, and actually save a recording? Let’s see.

Hardware and software

You need two things to make an iPhone recording. Three, if you include the iPhone itself. First is a way to get the audio in — a cable or a microphone. Second is an app to do the recording.

The easiest way is to use the Voice Memos app and the iPhone’s built-in microphone. In fact, this combination is so good you may not need much else. But if you want to record from another device, you will need a cable at least. And there are apps that are better suited to recording than Voice Memos.

Microphone

The iPhone has several microphones built in, and their quality is surprisingly good. In fact, I’ve used recordings done via the built-in mics in music tracks to add ambience. If this is your choice, just make sure not to let the wind hit the iPhone, or you’ll get wind noise. Other than that, every iPhone recording app will use the built-in mic automatically. And recent model iPhones can even record in stereo.

Headset or EarPods

The EarPods that came with your iPhone can also be used to record audio, thanks to the microphone that’s built into the cable. And if you have any other headset hooked up to your iPhone, that will work, too. In this case, the microphone in the headset/EarPods will just work. The iPhone will forget about its own microphone, and use this one instead.

Lightning microphone

One neat solution is to use an external mic that plugs into the iPhone’s Lightning port. This is a good compromise between the convenience of iPhone-only recording and the extra quality from a dedicated mic. It’s also the only way you’re going to get stereo sound in a pocket-size package on most iPhones.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipadZoom’s iQ5 is excellent and dead-easy to use.

To record using a Lightning microphone, just plug it in, wait for a moment for it to be recognized, and then pick your favorite recording app — including Voice Memos if you like. The connected mic will be used automatically.

Cable into the headphone jack

Here’s where we get fancy. It’s possible to plug anything into the audio jack of your iPhone and record it. If your iPhone doesn’t have an audio jack, then just plug in the Lightning to 3.5mm jack adapter that came with your iPhone, and plug the cable into that. If you recently spent almost $1,000 on an iPhone XS, then you won’t have gotten one of these dongles. You’ll have to buy your own.

After you’ve dealt with the dongles, there’s one more hurdle. The iPhone won’t record through its headphone jack (or headphone jack dongle) unless it thinks it’s connected to a headset. That means you need a special cable. If you ever bought some headphones that have a detachable cable with an inline remote and mic, then you’re in luck.

Just unplug it from those headphones, and plug it into the output of your audio source instead. A little keyboard, for example. Or another iPhone playing music. To record, press play on one device, and record on the other, and you’re off.

The right cable

A headset cable works every time. But you can also try with a TRRS cable. This looks like an ordinary jack cable, only it has three black rings around the jack instead of two. This is used to carry the microphone signal. I found that if I plugged one of these into a 2018 iPad Pro, it works straight away. If I plug it into an iPhone, it takes a while, but will eventually be recognized as an input source. If you’re still having trouble, try plugging the TRRS cable into the dongle first, and then plugging the dongle into the iPhone or iPad.

And if you’re using an older device with an actual headphone jack, grab yourself a TRRS cable and you’ll be good to go. If it doesn’t work straight off, make sure the other end is plugged into your source device.

There are several great apps for recording audio, but I recommend one above all others: AudioShare. It’s available for iPhone and iPad, and is not just built for recording, but for organizing and processing audio on your device. I use it as a central hub for all my audio on iOS, and it also integrates with a ton of other apps.

In this case I like it because it lets you choose an input source, and set input levels. It can also record to various file formats. Use WAV or AIFF if you need the highest quality; pick AAC if you need to save space. Below are a few of my other favorites, all of which are excellent.

Recording on the iPhone can be really easy. I wish the cable situation wasn’t so crazy.

How to Turn AirPods into a Wireless Microphone for iPhone Videos

by Barrett

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Looking for better sound on your next iPhone video project using one of Apple’s Bluetooth earbuds? You’ll first need this workaround.

If you own a pair of AirPods or AirPods Pro, you may come up with the bright idea to use them as a wireless microphone when you record selfie videos on your iPhone. The problem is you can’t do that using the iPhone’s native camera app. Apple didn’t build its app to support Bluetooth microphones.
(Strange, but true.)

Perhaps the visual of wearing little white sticks in your ears while shooting selfie videos originally seemed silly to Apple’s designers. But the pandemic has changed countless norms over the past year.

So many of us have been living our lives recently glued to our computer screens wearing geeky headsets, bulky headphones or slick little earbuds. If you don’t have a Borg-like audio device attached to your face, you clearly haven’t been assimilated into our new norm of daily video communications.

I Can’t Hear You
Recently, I produced a video with a colleague who needed to record an on-camera introduction using his iPhone. I suggested that he use his AirPods as his microphone so he could easily step back into his shot, unhindered by cables.

As I coached him from afar using the Microsoft Teams app, everything sounded fine. But when I listened to his test recording file, the AirPods clearly weren’t capturing his voice track. The iPhone’s onboard microphone was doing the work instead.

Third-Party App to the Rescue
Of course, we weren’t the first ones to uncover this problem. After doing some online research, I discovered that a variety of people have been complaining about this incompatibility for years.

The good news is there are two popular workaround solutions. Both involve downloading a video recording app to your iPhone that does allow you to use a Bluetooth microphone, including AirPods and AirPods Pro.

  • MoviePro – $9.99 in Apple’s App Store
  • FiLMiC Pro – $14.99 in Apple’s App Store

Both of these apps are primarily designed to give you a massive increase in control over your iPhone’s camera settings for video shoots, but they also provide the additional Bluetooth audio support for AirPods or AirPods Pro.

What’s That in your Ear?
Even before the pandemic, I saw so many folks running around the streets of New York City with little wireless earphones protruding from their heads. That laid the foundation for an acceptable new look in public. And that metamorphosis has now been truly cemented. (We’ve stared at each other over the past year on countless video conferences wearing any number of audio devices.)

It’s ironic that once upon a time, hiding your microphone while recording an on-camera video was considered a sign of professionalism. Now, most anything growing out of your ears is acceptable.

And if you want to put your AirPods to work for your next iPhone video recording, just don’t forget you’ll also need to spend a few bucks for a third-party app to secure the connection.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipadAirPods aren’t as good without iPhone.
Photo: Ste Smith/Cult of Mac

Photographer, videographer and online instructor Cielo de la Paz uses the iPhone and other Apple products for a lot of her work. She never envisioned she’d find value in the new Apple AirPods.

But she recently discovered how the AirPods’ Bluetooth microphone, combined with the iOS app MoviePro, solves a big problem when she shoots some of her tutorials.

de la Paz, who has had photos and video in a couple of the “Shot on iPhone” marketing campaigns, likes to record her tutorials for Skillshare on an iPhone 7 Plus and sometimes uses it on a DJI Osmo three-axis gimbal to keep her camera steady as she moves in the field.

The problem comes with recording the audio. She would normally attach an external microphone to her iPhone but the gimbal makes no room to accommodate anything attached to the phone.

So de la Paz bought the AirPods, which reviewers have praised for the microphone’s ability to filter out surrounding noise as it focuses on the wearer’s voice. MoviePro allows the videographer to record with a Bluetooth mic and, as de la Paz demonstrates in the video below, the microphone provided consistent audio as moved around her recording iPhone.

As for the quality of the audio, de la Paz leaves it up to the viewers to be the judge but for online purposes, she says it is serviceable.

“It’s not the best, but it is totally acceptable,” she said. “I don’t love the AirPods but it solves this problem.”

The Blue Yeti is a standard-bearer for plug-and-play microphones. The Blue Yeti microphone is my favorite for recording and podcasting, thanks to its ease of use and relative affordability. Whether I am recording by myself or in a roundtable discussion, the Blue Yeti is always up to the task.

But, can you connect a Blue Yeti microphone to an iPhone?

Blue Yeti, Yeti Nano, Yeti Pro, and Yeti X can be connected to an iPhone using Apple’s Lightning to USB or USB-C to USB Camera Adapters. For long recordings use a Lightning to USB3 Camera Adapter as it has a Lightning port to provide power to the microphone and simultaneously charge the iPhone.

If you’re a mobile content creator seeking better audio quality and want to know how you can connect your Blue Yeti microphone to your iPhone, then read on!.

Here are the Camera Adapters that you’ll need to connect your USB mic to your iPhone.

2. Set Blue Yeti microphone as the input device of PS4.

Once the Blue Yeti microphone is plugged into the PS4, go to the “Settings” of your PS4. (Please see the image below)

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Click on “Settings” and go to “Devices” .

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Once you click on “Devices” , it will take you to another menu. Select “Audio Devices” from that menu. (Please see the image below)

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Then go to “Input Device” . (Refer to the image below)

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Once you click on “Input Device” you will notice that it has the “USB Headset (Yeti Stereo Microphone)” already listed there. Go ahead and select the microphone as your input device.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

3. Set headphone as your output device.

Come back to the “Audio Devices” menu and this time select the “Output Device” menu option, which is right below “Input Devices” .

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Here you will notice that the “Output Device” would be set to “TV or AV Amplifier” as default.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

You could technically leave it like that while using Blue Yeti with your PS4, but if you plan to use Blue Yeti for game streaming, game capture, or just talking with your teammates, you are going to experience a weird echo effect.

This will happen because the sound coming from your TV will find its way into your Blue Yeti microphone. I am taking a wild guess and assuming you probably don’t want that to happen.

The best way to remedy this is to connect a headphone into the headphone jack of your PS4 Controller.

Once you have connected the headphone to the PS4 controller, go back to the “Output Device” menu option, and you will notice another option “Headphone Connected To Controller” has appeared. Select that option.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

This will allow you to hear all the sounds coming from the game as well as the other players talking into their own mics.

Congratulations! You have successfully connected your Blue Yeti microphone to your PS4.

Pro Tip : For a better audio experience, go to the “Adjust Microphone Level” menu option right below the “Output Device” , and depending on how loud you want your voice to come out when you are talking into your Blue Yeti, adjust the microphone level.

For best sound quality keep the microphone level somewhere in the middle.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Also, If you are a Blue Yeti microphone user, you can also adjust the gain on the back of the mic. This works the same way as adjusting the microphone level. Also, set the polar pattern to cardioid.

Excellent App. but

We were going to a funeral for my grandfather and we had a speaker but the microphone that came with it was broken. Then I searched all over the app store for an app that would be a good replacement for a mic. This was the BEST app for a microphone supplement. Although, there is problem with the speaker that makes it echo if the Phone (With this app turned on) and the speaker and within 20 feet then it echoes really badly and makes a loud ringing sound. But if you keep the speaker on the other side of the room like about 30-50 feet away then it doesnt echo and it makes for a really good microphone app. 100% Would recommend.

I give it 10 stars, saves my voice

I am a teacher with a soft voice. I wanted a simple app, to be able To turn my iPhone into a loud speaker without a stereo system. This little app will be treasured if teachers knew how to use it.
This is what I did. I bought a nice lapel microphone and plugged it into my iPhone 6. Then I connected my phone to my little Bluetooth jam speaker. Then a adjust the volume on my phone so there is no buzz. I don’t quite understand how it all works together but I am able to put the phone in my pocket , clip on the lapel microphone, and walk stitched classroom. Everyone can hear me. So thank you thank you for this app. I hope you don’t change anything because I love the simplicity and functionality.

Does what it says on the tin

I’m taking to wearing a half face respirator in public as #TheseTryingCovidTimes continue. I got the bright idea that I needed some sort of voice amplifier, since my voice gets pretty muffled in there. All I needed was an app to output to a little Bluetooth speaker… and this is exactly what I need. Great sound, low lag, easy to control. I immediately showed the app to one of my audio engineer friends, and he loves what can be done with it. As soon as I’m done here, I’m going pass it along to my other IT techs – this could be great in a Zoom setting, as a substitute for walkie talkies, or even a temp replacement for faulty AV equipment in a classroom!

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Here’s a public service announcement for Apple customers who use their AirPods to record audio while shooting a video with your iPhone camera app: stop!

While the AirPods microphone works just fine when talking on the phone or recording audio with the Voice Memos app, the mic on Apple’s wireless earbuds cannot be used to pick up audio when recording video with Apple’s own native iPhone camera app.

For users looking to record video, AirPods appear to be a perfect consumer-level product to function as a wireless microphone as well as an out-of-sight pair of earbuds. Upon discovering the incompatibility problem, those same Apple customers have been voicing their disappointment with the AirPods camera app issue on social media for years now.

There doesn’t appear to be an official documentation from Apple concerning the incompatibility issue with its AirPods and its own native iPhone camera app. Many consumers, such as the one in the video above, only discovered AirPods couldn’t be used as an audio source with the camera app only after shooting a video and hearing the recorded sound difference.

Mashable tested out a pair of AirPods while recording a video with the iPhone’s native camera app. We can confirm that the mic on the earpiece does not pick up the audio for the recorded video. Instead, the camera app reverts to the mic on the iPhone for the audio source.

The issue isn’t just with AirPods, either. Bluetooth devices are completely incompatible with the iPhone’s camera app while recording videos.

However, for AirPod owners who would really like to use the wireless device to record video, there are options. The AirPods mic, as well as other similar bluetooth devices, can be used as an audio source with third-party iPhone video camera applications like FiLMiC Pro or MoviePro.

Apple declined to comment on the issue.

The problem: I cannot use my bluetooth mic to record voice memos (Plantronics Voyager 520)

The apparent solution: If you read carefully the support page you need a mic from a bluetooth headset that has a logo “works with Iphone”

I cannot find any more information on this – I can hear my memos play back on my bluetooth but I want to record with my bluetooth so I can record hands free – I should also be able to press a button on my headset (when I have the program active) and that should be the equivalent of hitting the record button (cool if I could get it to work).

So two things, I want to confirm that I do need a special bluetooth headset to work as a mic for voice memos. Then I want to know if there are any headsets other than the Apple bluetooth that can perform this function.

It is a shame that my current bluetooth headset mic works for the iphone calls but not for recording voice memos. Thanks, Tom

works great with voice command, you can activate the ipod on your iphone while connected to a device with Docking Station, I not to sure about voice memo

I did an experiment – put my iphone in my drawer while tried to record with my bluetooth headset and confirmed voice memo was not using the bluetooth mic.

I want to use a bluetooth mic.

Meanwhile I looked carefully at the wired headsets with built in mic and they say they work with the Iphone 3gs but not the Iphone 3G.

I know I am asking about bluetooth headsets but anyone get a wired headset with mic to work on voice memo with a 3G Iphone (not 3GS)?

Of course if you have a bluetooth solution I would be more happier with that but if not, what is a wired headset solution here?

At times, you may want to keep a check on your kids, employee, or spouse by monitoring their phone’s microphone. It is particularly necessary in the case of minors, given the rising number of child abuse cases. Therefore, in this article, let’s have a look at how you can use phone mic to spy and record audio wirelessly.

Use Phone Mic To Spy On Others

Now, we aren’t going to use any of those fancy spying software available on the web. There are several free apps on Play Store that let you turn a phone into a microphone, post which, the audio can be streamed to other devices or recorded for later use.

While the primary purpose of these apps is to give presentations, announcements, or use your phone as a mic for a loudspeaker, you can also use them for spying your spouse and children, as described below.

Before we start, note that spying or eavesdropping on private conversations without seeking permission is illegal. So, use it responsibly.

Steps to Spy Microphone on any Android

1] Download and install the WiFi Ear app on the target phone as well as on your device. Yes, you need to have physical access to the smartphone you want to monitor the microphone on.

2] Now, open the app on both phones. On the target device, click on Use as Microphone. And on your personal phone, tap Use as Speaker.

Make sure that both phones are connected to the same WiFi network. If not available, you can also create a WiFi hotspot connection.

3] On your phone (that you’ll be using to monitor audio), tap Discover Microphone on Network, and it’ll automatically show you the other device named ‘WiFiEar’ connected to the network.

4] Tap on the device name to connect.

That’s it. You’ll now be able to hear the audio from the microphone of the target device. Use earphones or headphones to monitor audio in a better manner. Since it works on WiFi, it has a limited range; yet, it’s highly useful for monitoring other phones connected to your network.

If the app crashes or doesn’t connect, go to your phone’s Settings > Apps > WiFi Ear > Permissions and enable the toggle for the microphone. Also, if the app gets killed on the target device, add it to memory whitelist and disable battery optimization for the same.

Wrapping Up

So this was a quick guide on how you can spy on any phone’s microphone to monitor audio. Anyway, did the app work well for you? Do you have any other tools to recommend? Do let us know in the comments below. Moreover, feel free to reach out in case of any doubts or queries.

We have great news for mobile content creators everywhere!

Yeti, Yeti Nano, Snowball and Snowball iCE have been confirmed to work with Apple Lightning-to-USB and USB-C-to-USB adapters as well as USB On-The-Go (OTG) technology.

This means that any of these microphones can be used with any current iPhone, iPad or OTG-capable Android phone or tablet (Android connectivity depends on the specific device and app compatibility). Connecting Yeti, Yeti Nano, Snowball or Snowball iCE to a mobile device offers a studio-quality alternative to onboard microphones for recording or streaming videos, social media content, live gigs, podcasts and creating music. Blue mics and mobile devices are the perfect pairing for creators who like to pack light and get great audio anywhere.

A Lightning-to-USB adapter lets USB microphones connect to an iPhone or iPad via Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector. USB-C adapters interface with new USB-C ports, which have replaced Lightning on the 2018 iPad Pro. USB OTG enables the same connectivity on Android devices by allowing them to act as a USB “host,” like a traditional computer. Note that not all Android devices are OTG-compatible, and an adapter is still necessary to connect to a device’s micro-USB or USB-C port. Some adapters are specified for charging only and will not pass data, so use the specific products linked above or check for compatibility.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

Here are a few audio devices that we have found helpful in creating multi camera video productions with iPhones and iPads.

There are 3 ways you can manage audio when making video using your iPhone or iPad:

  1. Use the built in microphone on your iOS device.
  2. Connect an analog source such as a shotgun microphone or an audio mixer / PA Soundboard.
  3. Connect a Digital interface using the Lighting port on your device.

If you aren’t using the built in microphone on your iPhone or iPad you will need an analog TRRS compatible or digital audio adapter. Here are a few examples of adapters that you would find useful when connecting an auxiliary sound source to an iPhone or iPad.

Analog Adapters

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

The headphone connection on your iPhone and iPad can be used to bring in audio from another source, however, it requires a special adapter to work properly. If you try to plug a microphone directly into your headphone jack using standard adapters, you will not get an audio signal. You must use a TRRS audio adapter to bring audio in through the headphone jack on your iPhone or iPad. These tend to be inexpensive, and work best for recording interviews, conferences, classroom lectures, meetings, play-by-play commentary, etc., because the headphone jack on iOS devices only support mono audio input. If you need an analog TRRS adapter we recommend using the iRig PRE ($40.00) from IK Multimedia. This compact device makes XLR audio iOS compatible, it also has support for 48v Phantom Power so it can power a shotgun microphone or studio mic. In addition, the iRig PRE has a headphone jack so you can easily check your sound quality.

Digital Adapters

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

If you need higher quality stereo audio or you are recording music performances, a digital audio adapter may be a better solution. Digital adapters connect to the Lightning port of the iOS device instead of plugging in via the headphone jack. This results in much better audio quality compared to using an analog TRRS adapter. Keep in mind that you may not be able to charge your iPhone or iPad while using a digital audio adapter. Always make sure your primary device is fully charged before beginning your production.

The iRig Pro ($150.00) from IK Multimedia is a good digital audio adapter with a lot of flexibility. This adapter has a combo XLR/TS input and allows you to bring in a XLR connection or a 1/4″ cable from your microphone, mixer or soundboard. The iRigPRO also had a headphone jack so you can monitor the quality of your sound.

How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

If your audio mixer or sound board does not support XLR or ¼” output try the Behringer UCA202 ($30.00). This audio adapter will allow you to use the red and white RCA output from a mixer or PA and bring into your iPhone or iPad as an audio source. The Behringer UCA202 is USB only and connects using the Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter ($29.00). This setup also gives you a headphone jack for audio monitoring, plus a S/PDIF optical output.

Do you own an iPhone or iPad? Do you also play the guitar? Did you know that for as little as $75, you can use your iPhone or iPad to make professional-quality recordings of your guitar playing, complete with effects, keyboard and drum tracks? The following feature outlines the tools you’ll need to make recording your guitar playing on your Apple device a snap.

iPhone/iPad Recording Gear Cheat Sheet

Here is a quick overview of the tools you need to begin recording on your iPhone. More information on each product is available below.

iPhone

  • Electric instruments only – Apogee Jam Guitar Interface, Garage Band (app)
  • Electric/Acoustic/Vocals – Apogee Jam Guitar Interface, Blue Mikey, Garage Band (app)
  • iPad (1st generation, iPad2, 3rd generation)

    • Electric instruments only – Apple Camera Connection Kit, Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface, Garage Band (app)
    • Electric/Acoustic/Vocals – Apple Camera Connection Kit, Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface, Blue USB Microphone, Garage Band (app)
  • iPad (4th generation, iPad Mini, and even newer models)

    • Electric instruments only – Apple Camera Connection Kit, Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface, Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter, Garage Band (app)
    • Electric/Acoustic/Vocals – Apple Camera Connection Kit, Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface, Blue USB Microphone, Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter, Garage Band (app)
  • Hardware/Software for Recording Guitar on your iPhone/iPad:

    Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter

    ” data-caption=”apple lightning to usb adapter” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

    Plugging this simple little Apple connector into your iPad or iPhone provides you with a USB input, into which you can plug a myriad of different devices. Some of these (microphones with USB out, guitar inputs) are listed here, but there are hundreds of others available. An electric keyboard, for example, can interface with an iPad using this connection kit.

    Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface (iPad users)

    ” data-caption=”” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

    Requires the Apple Lightning to USB Adapter. A simple little device that converts your analog electric guitar signal to USB, which can then be plugged into your iPad. Just run your standard 1/4″ guitar cable directly from your instrument into the UCG102, and you can plug that into your iPad (via the Camera Connection Kit). The device features a high/low gain switch and a clip warning light.

    Blue USB Microphone

    ” data-caption=”” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

    Requires the Apple Camera Connection Kit. I love this odd-looking and relatively inexpensive little microphone for quickly and easily recording acoustic instruments. You simply plug a USB cable from the microphone into your device and you are ready to record. I’ve used the Blue for recording acoustic guitar, full bands, spoken audio, and some lead vocals, and have been impressed with the capture quality. A three-stop setting on the microphone allows you to control gain.

    Apogee Jam Guitar Interface (iPhone/iPad users)

    ” data-caption=”” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

    The first generations of devices designed to allow you to record electric guitars through your iPhone shared a common flaw – they used the analog audio-in via the phone’s headphone jack. This resulted in low-quality recordings plagued by “crosstalk” and other technical issues. The tiny Apogee Jam, although slightly more expensive than some of these cheaper options, uses the iPhone/iPad’s dock connector for a much higher quality data transfer. In simple terms, this allows for a much higher quality recording. With the Apogee Jam, you can plug your electric instrument into one end of the unit via a standard connect 1/4″ cable, and into the other end plug your iPhone/iPad using the provided adapters. And, as simple as that, you’re rigged to record on your phone or tablet.

    Blue Mikey

    ” data-caption=”Blue Mikey connected to iPad” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

    Full disclosure – We haven’t tried the Blue Mikey. But the microphone does look promising – it interacts with the iPhone’s digital port, rather than the inferior analog audio-in accessible through the iPhone’s headphone jack (which is what allows Apple to include a microphone in their headphones). Using this microphone, you’ll be able to record any analog sound on your iPhone – acoustic guitars or other instruments, vocals, etc.

    App: GarageBand (iPhone/iPad users)

    ” data-caption=”” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

    Once only available for desktops, Apple’s GarageBand is now available for the iPhone and iPad. The functionality they’ve packed into this low-priced app is truly impressive – for $5 you get ​multi-track recording, effects pedals, “smart” drum and keyboard tracks, and much more.

    App: Audiobus (iPhone/iPad users)

    ” data-caption=”” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

    Although not an essential purchase for those just getting their feet wet in recording on their iDevice, Audiobus is a handy tool that allows different audio apps to interact with each other. for example allowing you to record the guitar sound you’ve dialed in via the AmpliTube app using the GarageBand app.

    App: Guitar Tuner (iPhone/iPad users)

    ” data-caption=”” data-expand=”300″ data-tracking-container=”true” />

    There are a variety of free apps that allow guitarists to tune their instruments via their iPhone. Pretty handy stuff.

    Hello everyone, I am searching for a solution for recording on an iPhone or iPad using a microphone. I have tried using a microphone that plugged into my headphone jack. However, when I did so, I no longer recieved Voiceover feedback. Does anyone have a solution (microphone) that will allow me to record with in my App. while still receiving Voiceover feedback? Thanks in advance.

    So, if you want to record using a microphone and still get vo feedback, just plug in the earbuds that came with your iPhone. The earbuds have a small microphone, and you will still be able to receave vo feedback. Hope this helps.

    Re: REcoRecording with a microphone and getting VO feedback

    Submitted by peter on Sunday, August 21, 2016

    I would suggest a trip to Radio Shack or a similar vendor.

    The input on the iDevices expects 3 connections – two for the sereeo output and one for the microphone input. You need an adapter that can plug into the input of the iDevice and then splits into two ends – one end for plugging your microphone into and the other end for plugging in your earbuds.

    I don’t know if such a splitter exists, but if it does Radio Shack should be able to send you in the right direction.

    Description

    Turn your iPhone into a microphone for presentations, speeches and more!
    ▶ More than just an emergency microphone! ◀
    Easily connect to Bluetooth, use a plug-in microphone or go ahead with the built in microphone.
    Output your signal via Bluetooth HFP, Apple TV (some AirPlay) or direct out (earphone connector).
    Choose what serves you best!

    With Air Microphone, you have a small yet powerful toolbox for any Power Point presentation, instant speech, conference and more right in your pocket!

    The new Limiter serves as automatic problem solver by cutting excessive peak levels, built-in shelving filters allow to cut off unwanted noise or boost important frequencies.

    Air Microphone is the ultimate and easy to use fallback solution for speeches, presentations and more.

    For any situation where you need to be heard, grab your iPhone or iPad and connect it to Apple TV or Bluetooth.

    To use the Air Microphone app you need:
    • iPhone or iPad
    • AppleTV / AirPlay
    • Air Microphone App
    Additional options are available:
    • Use the microphone or headset of your choice if preferred
    • Connect to an external Bluetooth speaker is this is your preference

    The setup is quick and easy. It is a straight forward procedure as to expect from Apple TV.
    Fast and reliable – no unnecessary hassle when you are under pressure anyway.
    There is not much you can do wrong with Air Microphone.

    Easy and hassle free setup – extremely important when you are in a hurry anyway after everything else has failed!

    Here are a few hints that always apply when working with microphones and acoustics. Read this carefully, it’s a good thing to know anyway!

    • Adjust the volume with the slider. Be loud enough to be understood, but not as loud to create feedback. Keep in mind: the louder you are, the bigger the chance of feedback occurring!
    • In case of Feedback, reduce the volume with the slider.
    • Use the Limiter to avoid excessive peaks
    • Use the filters to cut or boost high frequencies and low frequencies
    • Do not stand in front of the speaker with the Microphone. Feedback will occur when the sound from the loudspeaker travels directly into the microphone.
    • Adjust positions of loudspeakers and microphone to find the best working solution. Placement of both loudspeakers and microphone has a big impact on sound quality!

    The Air Microphone app does not replace a professional setup. But it costs much less and the setup is much faster. And more important: you carry your iPhone with you anyway! It even comes with an equalizer to make some rough adjustments.

    And while you are at it, why don’t you share a picture or two since you are connected to AppleTV anyway! You can do that with Air Microphone.

    Get the Air Microphone app now. Who knows when you will hold the next emergency speech!

    Drop us a line for feedback and suggestions, we like to hear from you!
    And if you like this app, a good rating is always welcome.

    With the removal of the proprietary headphone jack, Apple also eliminated the workaround that allows users to split the audio between two earphones by plugging a wired audio splitter. With most people replying on wireless headphones today, the option to use two earphones at the same time seems pretty much impossible unless you download some third-party apps.

    However, to make things simpler, Apple with iOS 13.2 update has added a new feature called Share Audio and it allows users to listen to the same audio on two different Bluetooth devices at the same time. However, it is worth noting that the feature only works with earphones or headphones that come with Apple’s H1 or W1 chip that means the only option here is Apple AirPods or latest Beats devices.

    Here’s how to use this feature on iPhone and iPad .

    First up, head to the Bluetooth Settings on iPhone and pair both the headphones one-by-one.

    Then, connect one of them and start playing any audio or video.

    Now, open the control center

    You can open it by swiping down from the top right corner on iPhone without the home button and swipe up from the bottom of the screen on iPhones with Home button.

    After this, tap on the Music option to see more options.

    Here, you’ll see the currently connected device is selected and playing the audio.

    Look for Share Audio option and tap on it

    The iPhone will automatically detect the compatible headphone and prompt to share the music with that.

    Looking to record audio on-the-go? Check out these recording apps you can use on your iPhone.

    There are plenty of options these days when it comes to choosing a recording app for your iOS device. We’ve already covered the options available to folks recording audio on the Android platform. This time round, we’ll be focusing on iOS and the iPhone.

    This is predominantly about recording audio, but many of these apps offer editing options too. The app that most appeals to you may depend on whether or not you’d also like to edit and produce on your iPhone. If you’re recording on your phone purely for the convenience and flexibility, but plan to do your production and editing work on the computer, then check out our guide to the best podcast editing software too.

    A Word on Uncompressed Vs Compressed Audio

    When seeking out the best recording apps for iOS, I wanted the option to record uncompressed audio. This basically means you’re getting the highest quality source material possible. However, in many instances, recording compressed audio may be preferable, because the files are much smaller. To most listeners, the difference won’t even be noticeable. If you’re recording hours and hours of content in a single day, then this might be the way to go.

    Best Recording Apps for iOS

    So onwards to the apps themselves. I’ve been playing around with a lot of these, and here are the ones I’ve liked the most – in no particular order…

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    Summary: Best Recording Apps for iOS

    All of these apps have something to offer. If I had to pick a favourite though, I’d probably go with the Hokusai Audio Editor. I was really impressed with its multitrack capabilities.

    And although it isn’t a recording tool itself, I want to give a nod to iOS app EditPoint. Editing on your phone can be fiddly, and often difficult, but EditPoint is a great way to review your audio on-the-go, and create a production to-do list. If you record lengthy interviews you need to comb through for edits, then you’ll definitely want to be using this.

    Podcast Production Made Simple

    Hopefully, that’s you set up to record audio on-the-go with your iPhone. Be sure to check out the Samson Satellite or Shure MV5 too, if you’d like a top quality mic to plug directly into your device.

    And if editing on the phone just isn’t for you, check out our ‘Podcast Maker’ web app Alitu. Alitu makes it easy to edit your content, build your episodes, and publish them for the world to hear. You don’t need to know the slightest thing about audio production to start using it!

    So you you want to record your intercom or ATC audio? Well that’s a great idea – it’s a great training tool, allowing you to review what you’re learning. Even for experienced pilots, those who are not Class C current can go back and figure out what they did wrong when ATC yells at you!

    The thing is, lots of people say, “..just go buy xyz wire from Radio Shack and Plug’er in”. Problem with this advice: It’s BAD advice. It’s part ‘quality’ and part ‘risk’. Here’s why:

    1. Stabbing homebrew cabling into a $3000 aircraft intercom system (or more if you have fancy panels) is not worth the risk of damage if you ask us. Using factory soldered and tested cables is much safer. I’m sure it’s debatable, but the fact is no one is as good at custom wiring a cable as a manufacturing team – what would you tell your FBO (or your wife) if their $3000 Garmin COM decides to fail while your custom cable just happens to be in use? Plus a $39 cable is an instant success too without running around ‘building’ something new.

    2. This is a matter of personal taste, but a well manufactured cable with a proper circuit design and shielded wire in an electronically noisy environment (RF) will yield the BEST results. Fred, a recent customer, just sent us an email claiming it’s a “..much better sound clarity than my cobbled-together Radio Shack solution”. When impedance is properly matched the levels in the audio are near perfect, without being distorted from overdrive. This ‘impedance matching’ is the circuit board design which is housed inside the little black box you see in our cables – this is not simply a ‘splitter’ for the cable, there is electronic audio processing going on inside to bring the audio levels to an appropriate value for your recording device.

    3. The ‘mic-in-the-earpiece’ trick is lack-luster at best. It’s highly variable and unreliable. The levels are never the same from one flight to the next as it will vary based on position in the ear. If you want a quality and reliable audio recording, don’t go that route just for the $20 you save. “Make a memory” and record something worth listening to!

    So then, what’s the BEST solution to recording ATC audio?

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    How about recording to your GoPro HERO3 orHERO4 cameras (all models excluding HERO4 “Session”)? No problem there either.

    The best devices are the ones that act like all-in-ones. The Apple AirPods are one of those – you can listen to music, talk to Apple’s digital assistant, make calls, and more. These convenient and powerful earbuds have a microphone too.

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    What you can’t do is record audio while using your iPhone camera – your AirPods won’t pick up the sound. They don’t act like a conventional sound recorder.

    However, there are some other recording-related things they can do with Siri’s help.

    Replying to Messages

    One way of recording your voice is by turning it into text with your voice assistant. If you can’t type at the moment, but Siri read you a message you’ve just received, you can reply by telling Siri to do it for you.

    The only thing you need to do is to start your response with “Reply.” Before Siri sends the message, she will repeat your words and ask you to confirm. You can turn off the confirmation feature, but why not double-check before your message is gone, and it’s too late?

    To successfully reply by using your voice, you need to make sure the microphone settings are set to what you need. You can access the microphone within the pods through your Bluetooth settings.

    1. Open the AirPods case to allow your iOS device to access the AirPods’ settings.
    2. Open the Settings app on your phone and select Bluetooth.
    3. Find your AirPods on the list and tap the little blue “i” icon next to them.
    4. Scroll down to find the Microphone section and choose the settings the suit your needs. The microphone’s default setting is Automatic, so the pod that’s in your ear is the microphone. You can make just one of the earbuds always be the microphone if you want to use one instead of both. These settings won’t change even when you put the AirPods back to their case.
      How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    Live Listening

    You can also listen to what’s going on around your phone when the microphone is on. It’s called live listening, and it’s easy to set up.

    1. Open the Settings app on your phone.
    2. Select Control Center.
    3. Tap on Customize Controls to see more options.
    4. Scroll to find Hearing. Tap the circle icon on the left to make it green.
    5. Tap Back in the top left corner to save your choice.
    6. You’ve added the Live Listen option to the Control center.
    7. Go back to the Control center and tap the Ear icon.
    8. Select Live Listen.
    9. Put the phone close to the sound source. Adjust the volume on your AirPods to hear well.

    Voice Memos

    Downloading the Voice Memos app allows you to record audio and later listen to it on your AirPods. Here’s how to do it:

    1. Download the Voice Memos app to your phone.
    2. Ask Siri to open the app or launch it yourself and tap the red circle to start recording.
    3. When you’re done, tap the red square to finish recording.

    Your iPhone will save the memos in the iCloud. You can also trim, delete, and share these voice memos.

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    How to Edit a Voice Memo

    To edit a memo, you should:

    1. Select the one you’d like to alter.
    2. Tap the three-dot icon to open a menu where you’ll select Edit Recording.
    3. Place the blue playhead where you want the edited part to start. Tap Replace to record a new message over the existing one.
    4. Tap the pause icon when you finish and select Done to save the memo.

    How to Delete a Part of the Voice Memo

    If you want to delete a part of your voice memo, do the following:

    1. Open the one you want to delete something from.
    2. Tap on the three-dot icon and then Edit Recording.
    3. Tap the little blue square icon and use the yellow handles to mark the part you want to go.
    4. Choose Delete and then Save. If that’s all, select Done to save changes.

    How to Share a Voice Memo

    You can listen to these memos on your AirPods as long as they’re connected to your device. If you want to share them with someone, follow these steps:

    1. Select the memo you’d like to share.
    2. Tap the three-dot icon and then Share.
    3. Pick the app and the contact you want to share the voice memo with.

    How to Delete a Voice Memo

    If you want to delete a voice memo altogether, you should do this:

    1. Select the memo you’d like to delete.
    2. Select the trash icon.

    If you accidentally delete a memo, you can restore it by tapping the Recently Deleted option and choosing the one you want to restore. Tap Recover, and then Recover Recording to confirm. Note that you can’t recover a memo if it’s been more than 30 days since you deleted it.

    No Need to Type

    Having AirPods in your ears is like having an assistant in your head. They can be a lifesaver – the fact that you can reply to a message without looking at your phone means no texting while driving! They come in handy in plenty of situations, and what’s best, they’re so simple to connect and use.

    Have you already used your AirPods to reply to messages, recording voice memos, or live listening? Share your experience in the comments section below.

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    When shooting video on your phone, you have two cameras at your disposal, the rear camera and the selfie camera, and you can switch freely between the two. As for microphones, you may have more than one but, unlike with the cameras, it’s not easy to switch between them. Filmic Pro solves this problem by isolating the mics so you can choose the best option for the audio track.

    At this time, Filmic Pro only offers support for internal mic-switching on iPhone. If you’re an Android user with multiple mics on your phone, you’ll have to wait for Filmic Pro to update the app on the Play Store before having a choice over which mic you can record audio with. However, on both iOS and Android, you can switch to an external microphone, Bluetooth or wired.

    To start, tap the settings cog in the bottom right, then choose “Audio.” Here, you’ll find your microphone options as the first menu in the window. Tap the arrows to move through the mic options. If there are no arrows, that means you can’t select from any of the internal mics and you don’t have any external mics connected.

    On a newer iPhone model, you can choose between the bottom mics by the Lightning port, the front mic by the FaceTime or TrueDepth camera, and the back mic by the True Tone flash. On an Android phone, it’s just the “Camera Microphone,” which should use the mic near either the rear or selfie camera, depending on which you’re using.

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    For both iOS and Android, you can wirelessly connect your mic (or Bluetooth headphones that have a mic) so that it shows up in the microphone selector. On an iPhone, you need to toggle the “Bluetooth Microphone” option on first in this settings panel. The audio quality may be reduced depending on the product. For instance, an old pair of Bluetooth headphones will only give me an 8 kHz sample rate, so it will sound flat and dull, and some sounds might not even be picked up.

    Bluetooth headphones work great as makeshift lavaliers, but you can also buy Bluetooth lavalier mics that will connect directly with your phone without a receiver. There aren’t many options out there, but there are some solid ones.

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    For wired mics, just plug them into the 3.5 mm audio jack, USB Type-C port, or Lightning port. If it’s a wired set of headphones with a mic, it’ll show up as “Headset Microphone” or something similar. A Bluetooth mic with a 3.5 mm jack receiver will also show up when plugged in and connected, as well as something like a cheap wired omnidirectional lavalier mic.

    For the best sound possible, you can connect something like a Rode directional microphone which mounts right on the phone and plugs into the headphone jack. The Rode VideoMic Me cardioid mini-shotgun mic, in particular, has a headphone jack on it too so you can listen to what you’re recording with headphones so you know exactly what you’re capturing. There are similar products that have a Lightning jack instead.

    (Some external microphones may need a TRRS adapter to work with Filmic Pro.)

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    Which mic you should choose depends on what you’re shooting. If you’re using the selfie camera on an iPhone, try the front mic, as it will be facing your direction. When the sound you need is off to the side, use the bottom mic on an iPhone pointed at the source. If using an external mic, place the mic as close to your subject as possible or use a directional mic. In short, choose the mic that’s closest to the sound you’re trying to capture, whether that means switching internal mics or using external ones.

    Also in the audio settings panel is the audio format selector (on iOS only) which lets you switch between PCM, AIFF, and AAC formats. On both operating systems, you can choose the sampling rate, which will vary depending on the device and the microphone selected. For instance, I’ve seen options for 8 kHz (a Bluetooth headset), 16 kHz, 44.1 kHz, and 48 kHz, but Filmic Pro can go as high as 96 kHz for certain microphones (like ones that have a Lightning connection).

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    In this menu, you can also toggle on “Video Only” to record with no sound, which is good if you’re using an external audio recorder to capture sound instead. There’s also a “Voice Processing” option that hones into the audio frequencies in the human speech range to capture conversations and monologues better.

    And on iOS only, there’s an “Automatic Gain Correction” option, helpful when shooting with the internal mics so that the gain levels adjust automatically, though, you may pick up more background sound this way.

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipadIs your iPhone microphone not working? A malfunctioning microphone is way more than an inconvenience but can make your phone virtually unusable. The microphone is one of the most important pieces of hardware on our iPhones. It’s not just for calls, but for Siri, voice memos, messages, and all kinds of uses. Fortunately, there are several quick fixes that can get your microphone running perfectly in no time. Check out these essential tips:

    Signs of iPhone Microphone Problems

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    This can happen on your iPhone, iPad, or any iOS device when you experience problems making calls, using FaceTime and Siri, or recording audio. Additional examples include:

    • Others can’t understand you during a FaceTime or regular phone call.
    • Siri says, “sorry I didn’t get that” when you make requests or doesn’t hear the whole command.
    • When playing back recorded audio, you don’t hear anything or it is unclear.
    • If you are unable to change audio sources during Facetime or calls.

    Know the Location of Your Microphones

    So you actually have three microphones on your microphone. There are two on the front and one in the back between your camera lenses—depending on your iPhone model, the exact location may slightly vary:

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    You can test the primary microphone located on the bottom of your phone by opening Voice Memos. Press record and speak into the mic. End the recording and play it back. If you don’t hear your voice clearly, then this microphone is malfunctioning.

    To check your front microphone, open up your camera and record a video with the front camera. To check the rear microphone, do the same except using the back camera. When you play back either video, you should be able to hear yourself clearly in the video recordings.

    Sometimes, your voice might sound muffled during a call. Make sure your rear microphone isn’t obstructed by anything. Likewise, if you are having difficulty with Siri, be sure the front receivers aren’t obstructed or dirty.

    Quick Fixes for Your iPhone Microphone Not Working

    If you are having trouble with your microphones, don’t panic just yet. There are plenty of easy tips that can help fix your iPhone in no time.

    • Make sure there are no Bluetooth headsets connected to your microphone that may be preventing normal function. Turn off Bluetooth and try testing again. In some cases, you may need to delete Bluetooth devices under the Forget this Device under the Bluetooth settings for a soft reset.
    • Disconnect any headphones or other external accessories that may have microphone features or interfere with the connections.
    • Remove any screen protectors, cases, or films which may be covering one of your microphones.
    • Quit out of any apps that might be using your microphone connection.
    • Check if there is a problem with your cellular/Wi-Fi connection or apps. For example, you can try a test call using Skype.
    • For connection problems, try switching from cellular to Wi-Fi or vice versa. In some cases, you may need to take out your sim card and put it back in again.

    For app malfunctions, check to see if there are any new updates. If not, delete and reinstall the app. Sometimes apps may not have permission to access the microphone so make sure they are enabled for whichever one you are trying to use.

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    Try a Hard Reboot of Your Device

    If these techniques aren’t working for you, you may need to do a hard reboot of your phone. Think of hard reboots a more thorough restart of your phone clearing out more memory. Don’t worry, it won’t erase your data.

    Update Your iPhone

    iPhone updates are your best friend. Anytime Apple issues an update, you should update right away. Most importantly, they tend to be vital security patches. However, every time you update your phone, you also perform a deep system check and reset that will go through your entire phone and often can fix any bugs and issues you may be experiencing. You can also try a complete system restore although you will lose all the data on your iPhone so only resort to that as a final option. Make sure your sync your phone to iCloud before you do a restore.

    Recording audio on the fly on iPhone is super handy and can be used in so many ways. Students have the ability to record lectures. Journalists can record source interviews to supplement handwritten notes. Or, a musician can record tracks and ideas while experimenting with sounds. Whatever the reason, there are countless voice memo and recording apps on the App Store for iPhone. Here are some of the best.

    Voice Memos

    Indeed, Apple offers a native Voice Memos app and has since Phone OS 3 was introduced way back in 2009. Over the years, the app has received occasional updates that have added new features and redesigns.

    Featuring iCloud support, Voice Memos allows you to capture audio on the go and then use the content later on your other iOS devices, including iPad and Mac. (A native Voice Memos app arrived on Mac with macOS Mojave.) From there you can trim your recordings to save just the portion you want. When editing is complete, you can share your creations through AirDrop, Mail, Messages, and more.

    Voice Memos allows recordings from your iPhone’s built-in microphone, Bluetooth headset, or a compatible external microphone. You can choose compressed or uncompressed audio formats, and automatically name and tag recordings based on your location.

    The free Voice Memos app by Apple is available for download on the App Store. It comes preinstalled on iOS devices, although you can delete it just as you would any other app.

    Voice Recorder (Recording App)

    Perhaps the most beautiful voice recording app in the App Store, Voice Recorder allows you to record and mix selected audio or video files. Better still, it includes the ability to start recording at a scheduled time, which is ideally suited for students that don’t want to forget to record a lecture.

    The free app also lets you record and mix the current playing sound, increase the recording volume, record only when speaking, increase the recording volume, and more. You can also password your recordings to protect them from wandering ears. Once your recording is complete, you can convert it into different types of files including MP3, M4A, AAC, MP4, CAF, AIFC, AIFF, WAV, and AMR. You can also save the files through iTunes File Sharing, iCloud Drive, Reminders, Moments, and Calendar.

    Voice Recorder (Recording App) includes ads, which tend to become annoying. Once you’re comfortable with using the app, I suggested removing the ads with an in-app purchase. You can download the app in the App Store.

    Voice Record Pro

    Nearly seven years after it was first released, Voice Record Pro remains one of the most popular professional voice recorders around. The app features a skeuomorphic design that Apple once embraced, but with up-to-date features, you’d come to expect from a voice recording app.

    With Voice Record Pro you can record voice memos of any length, then export them into various formats including standard AAC/MP4/M4A, plus WAV. You can also trim and duplicate the records, protect them with a passcode, and more.

    Memos are easily exportable to Google Drive. DropBox, Microsoft, OneDrive. Box Cloud, iCloud Drive, SoundCloud, FTP server, and more.

    Following the pattern of similar apps, Voice Record Pro is available for free with ads. An in-app purchase squashes those forever. Download the app in the App Store here.

    *Voice Recorder

    Not to be confused with other apps on the list is *Voice Recorder, a simple-to-use solution that includes many unique features, including transcription. Like other solutions, the app features a beautiful, graphical user interface that’s easy to understand immediately. Once complete, you can transfer your recording to other devices and through SMS, Facebook, and Twitter.

    *Voice Recorder is a freemium solution that you can try free for three days. From there, you’ll need to make an in-app purchase.

    Voice Recorder & Audio Editor

    How to record audio from a bluetooth mic on the iphone or ipad

    Here’s another memo app that does a great job of recreating the look of physical recorders from the past for iPhone. The freemium app offers unlimited recordings and cloud support through iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Box, and more.

    Features include multiple audio formats., passcode protection, loop recordings, trim recordings, change playback speed, skip backwards/forwards 15 seconds, and favorite recordings.

    With an in-app purchase, the Voice Recorder & Audio Editor unlocks advanced features like transcription, text notes, and a bonus call recorder.

    With the call recorder, you can record incoming and outgoing phone calls using a three-way conference calling feature. It is not possible to record phone calls using the built-in microphone on your iPhone.

    The Voice Recorder & Audio Editor is available to download on the App Store.

    Try the Multi-Track Song Recorder

    For something completely different, consider Multi-Track Song Recorder. As its name suggests, the app is geared specifically towards those who record music. Nonetheless, it also serves as a respectable voice recorder.

    With Multi-Track Song Recorder, you can record up to four tracks using a metronome. You can merge your tracks in the same recording session for unlimited possibilities. When completed, export your songs through Dropbox, Email, SMS, and iTunes File Sharing.

    With the Upgrade to Pro option (just $0.99), you can remove advertising and unlock more advanced metronome features. Multi-Track Song Recorder is available through the App Store.

    Evernote

    The first thing that comes to mind about the popular Evernote service probably isn’t its recording capabilities. Despite this, the feature is excellent and blends perfectly into the rest of the Evernote universe. After creating a note through the Evernote iOS app, click on the microphone icon to create a voice recording; it’s as simple as that. You can dictate notes from Evernote on Apple Watch too.

    For a more seamless approach, use the built-in iOS voice dictation tool directly in the Evernote app. You tap the microphone icon on the keyboard (it’s located near the space bar) and then speak into the microphone. From there, your voice converts into text right into your note.

    Evernote is a free service, although you’ll need to purchase a subscription to unlock advanced features including more cloud storage space, quick search, and annotated PDFs. A premium subscription is not necessary to use the voice recording feature, however.

    Plenty of options

    If you’re a casual voice recorder, I’d suggest sticking with Apple’s native app, which provides basic recording, editing, and sharing capabilities. For extra features, consider the Voice Recorder (Recording App). The other apps on this list are also great and come with their own set of regular and advanced features. Because each of these apps is free to try, you have nothing to lose with checking out all seven solutions.
