7 Sweet iOS Devices, from Interfaces to Mixers

By GINO ROBAIR | July 22, 2013

THE CREATIVE potential of Apple’s iOS devices—the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch—has grown quickly as manufacturers rush to support this exciting and extremely portable platform. With so many instrument and virtual-studio apps available, the demand has increased for interfaces with high-quality audio and plug-and-play connectivity, so manufacturers are stepping up to the plate. Here, we bring you some of the newest and most exciting products on the market.

One concern for many iOS device owners was the 2012 introduction of Lightning, the 8-pin connector on the iPad with Retina Display, the iPhone 5, and the fifth-generation iPod touch that superseded the 30-pin connector. At first, owners of these new products had to install Apple’s 8-to-30-pin adapter cable to use their audio interfaces and MIDI controllers, though the extra cable length was a bit inconvenient. However, a number of manufacturers now include cables featuring both connectors. That lets users of new and legacy iOS products equally experience the joys of the latest interface technology.
