There are LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of ways to attach your iPhone to a tripod. We have tried many. If you’re shooting stills (and to some extent video) this is one of the very best, hands-down

The MeFOTO SideKick360 Plus Smartphone Tripod Adapter fits phones that are between 2.99″ to 3.58″ Wide. The unit has a built-in Arca-Swiss style base which makes it our favorite. Instead of attaching an Arca-Swiss plate to the adapter and then attaching both to a tripod, you can simply attach the SideKick. It is rock solid. The unit is well-built and perfectly designed

It helps to provide both stability and control and is easier to setup and use than most similar adapters on the market.

If you don’t want to use the Arca-Swiss plate, it comes with three different 1/4″-20 mounts for attaching to any number of stability controls.

The flexible ball joint allows for 360-degree rotation, so you can situate your phone in either portrait or landscape mode, and the flat base allows it to be used by itself as a stand.

We have only two complaints about the SideKick.

1. It won’t fit many of the larger phones (our new iPhone 11 Pro Max included.)
2. It’s very expensive compared to some similar products.

That said, the MeFOTO is the most elegant solution we can find.
