Hi there,
Thank you for your response. Funnily enough, the link you provide for the lightning camera/headphone/charger adaptor is the one I had spotted on Amazon.fr. It would be interesting to get your feedback on it.

My pleasure -- I ordered that adapter and should have it tomorrow, so I'll let you how it works.

I received the fore-mentioned adapter today, and it works great with all the iOS devices we have floating around the house:

ipad Air with iOS 12.3.1
iPhone 6s with 12.4.1
iPad Mini 4 with 13.3.1

Note that all of these have headphone jacks built in as well, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work just as well with devices without the headphone jack. There's no noticeable latency with WARBL, and you can also charge your device and power WARBL by plugging in another Lightning cable if desired. It's nice that this is compact and has the Lightning plug built in, so you don't need the Apple camera adapter, and the price is certainly right! Here's the link again:

Now hopefully we can find something like this for Android!

This one looks like it could potentially work with Android, but I don't own an Android to test it with:

In the comments someone mentioned using it with a MIDI controller on an iPad Pro (which has a USB C connector like Androids), so presumable the latency is okay.
