Would an external microphone work on an iPad?

Episode 1015 (1:29:54)

Steven from New Hampshire

Leo says that external mics don't just inherently work with the iPad. He'd have to find something that would be able to plug into the lightning port on it. Steven is trying to make this work with the Double Robotics iPad robot, too. He could get the Rode LAV mic, but it would have to work within the Double Robotics software. He might have to call Double Robotics to find out what he could do. Leo thinks that any mic he can connect to the iPad would be recognized by it, though.
