Chord Mojo Connections to Apple iPhone, iPad or MacBook

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

The Chord Mojo does not have an Apple authenticity chip.
No Apple chip means you can’t connect your Mojo directly to an Apple iPhone, iPad, or the latest Macbooks.

The Apple authenticity chip essentially tells the DAC or digital device to output digital audio.  It’s Apple’s way of protecting their market share & audio connections to their products.




To connect, you need an Apple CCK + a Silver Dragon or Black Dragon USB Cable.

  2. Hello Drew. It was a good article for me since I bought it to connect with my iphone 6.
    Um. I am wondering whether my solution will work.

    Will this work?

  3. We’re almost to mid-March since this was posted on 1/16. When Chord releases this, then and only then will I make Mojo purchase. An Ether/Ether C/ Chord Mojo bundle would be swell, but unlikely we’ll see it anytime soon, so sticking with NAD Viso HP 50 + Mojo when I buy (v:
