Cheapest, most important accessory for #iphonereporting

A microphone windscreen costs under five dollars at any music store or online, yet it’s the most important accessory for #iphonereporting.

The built-in microphone of the iPhone is very susceptible to wind — even a stiff breeze can ruin a recording.

Yet, a simple windscreen has allowed me to use my iPhone during coverage of a hurricane.

Just slide the bottom of the iPhone into the windscreen (remember the built-in mic is just to the left of the charging port) and you’ll be fine.

Looks silly? Maybe. Works? Yep.
