Using an iPhone or an iPad as a camera for mimoLive is very appealing. The cameras in iPhones are pretty good and since many people already have one, it isn’t an extra investment to get a decent camera.

There are several ways to use an iPhone as a camera in mimoLive:

- Using a Lightning cable and the mimoCam app (see iOS Device Video Source)
- mimoCall over the public internet (see mimoCall)
- NDI via Wifi using the NDI|HX camera app
- Various third party apps that turn the iPhone into a Webcam for the Mac like Camo (see Using iPhone as a webcam)
- Continuity Camera with iOS 16 and MacOS Ventura

The method that works best for you depends on the circumstances and can ultimately only be determined through testing.
