An update regarding the iPad microphone with iOS 9.3+
The Faber app updates released this week address the issue with the built-in iPad microphone input gain. In short, with the release of iOS 9.3.1, Apple chose to change the input gain range for the built-in microphone on iPad, which meant that apps such as SoundMeter needed to either adjust input gain or input sensitivity in order to continue to allow for reasonably accurate sound level measurements. Unfortunately, iOS versions 9.3.1 through 9.3.4 contain a bug that causes the previous input gain range to be applied after a microphone is connected to the headset jack and then removed.
The following Faber apps have been updated with a built-in workaround to properly apply the appropriate input gain on each version of iOS:
- SoundMeter 8.4
- SoundMeter Pro 4.4
- SignalScope 7.4
- SignalScope Pro 6.4
- IOScope 5.4
- RoomScope 4.4
- dB 4.4
Each app has also been updated to support iOS 10 when it is released later this year.
