In 2011, Apogee Electronics was one of the first companies to come out with a microphone designed specifically for iOS devices - iPhones, iPads, etc. The microphone was the Apogee MiC. It could record studio quality (24 bit up to 44.1/48kHz) audio on an iPad, iPhone or Mac computer (via USB) without having to use Apple camera connection kit. You just plugged it right into your device with the 30-pin connector (or USB cable for the Mac) and could start recording immediately.
Now in 2020, Apogee has the newest version of the Mic: The MiC Plus. It is a sort of hybrid mic. It is a USB mic you can use with any computer. But it also connects to your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch with the supplied lightning connector.
This is a professional studio-quality microphone. It's a carioid condenser mic, which means it is "directional" - capturing sound best from in front and rejecting it from behind. These are great for vocals, but also work well on instruments.
The mic has what Apogee calls their "PureDIGITAL" connection for pristine sound quality up to 24-bit/96kHz and 46dB of mic preamp gain.
It also has a headphone output with blend feature (dial in how much of the input and playback output you want) for zero-latency recording.
This thing is compact, so is great for mobile recording, especially with its ability to connect to your iOS devices.
