Any updates on which iPhones/IOS work, or any other general d:VICE news/thoughts? haven’t used mine since before the shutdown and will be using it soon!
I just ordered one and pre-covid got an ipod touch to use. Anything that supports a recent iOS and has a lightning connector will work AFAIK. I'm looking forward to this upgrade from recording onto minidisc many moons ago. It's been probably 10 years since I taped.

Getting started with a new d:vice and refurbished iPhone SE to use with DPA 4060s, and am trying to think through whether there's any advantage to using a different apple ID than I use for my regular phone. 

 I guess there would be a little bit of additional free cloud storage, but OTOH I already pay for plenty of storage for photos and w/ a separate AID there would be separate purchases for recording apps etc.

Is there anything I'm missing on this decision?  That "hello" setup screen is waiting for me to decide, and I lean toward just using my same apple ID, but maybe one of you has reasons why I shouldn't...?

Also, I am inclined to remove messages, mail, and any other apps that might generate notifications or interruptions of any sort.  Presumably if it's connected to wireless I could always re-download them from the cloud.  With cell service off and in airplane mode it shouldn't be an issue, right? 

If you are using a dedicated iOS device for recording, how do you have it set up?

I try to keep my “recording phone” as free of apps or anything running on it as possible. I don’t know that it’s truly necessary, if you didn’t do that just making sure other apps were closed and the phone being in airplane mode should probably be enough.

I have a dedicated iPod Touch 32GB. I bought it new, installed the required apps, and left everything else as is. No issues (other than operator error) so far.

I have a pair of DPA 4061s terminating in a single 3.5mm jack. Could I use them with the d:VICE if I got some sort of 3.5mm-to-dual microdot cable, or would I have to get the mics reterminated with microdots?

Yes! That's the sort of thing I had in mind. Can anyone see a reason why that wouldn't work?
