Are you saying you have EarPods with a Lightning connector?

Quite honestly if you can’t get the adaptor for free just buy a new pair of earphones with a 3.5mm jack, it makes much more financial sense.

What 6spdmanual said.

Apple's lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack works the wrong way around for you..

Have an old one lying around somewhere, cost about R250 odd IIRC.

Buy some throw-away 3.5mm earphones and be done with it.

Anything over R100 and you wasting your money. I’d rather get a good brand generic AirPod pros for both phone and mac...

As above, Apple, non Apple may have mic issues....possibly sort via sound in syspref.

In really doubt there exists a lightning to 3.5mm adapter that actually works properly, including the microphone

Borrow some? We probably have about 7 old sets op earphones that came bundled with cellphones over the years lying around. Or get a cheapish set of Volkano Bluetooth earphones from clicks

Would still need new / other earphones. In this case the iMac isn't the one being difficult, it's the iPhone

PCs, famous for their Lightning ports.

And much cheaper than a R16 adapter.

It comes down to this
@46Shemale just has the worst ever luck with Apple products when you read her/she/its threads that keep popping up this year regarding her/it/she problems with Apple. ;)
