    This mic works well on a 2018 USB C iPad Pro running the iPad OS13 public beta. I connected the mic via the Apple’s USB C to HDMI adapter (the adapter has a USB A port too). I also connected the mic via a third party (Cygnet) USB C to USB A adapter. The recording came out ok. There was no clipping or excessive gain. Shure app did not recognize the mic as an MV5 but I was able to record. I was able to record via Ferrite app too. Do keep in mind that I used the beta IPad OS. I will post an update when the OS is final.
