    you want to record the output of an iPhone on an Air? can you offer a little more detail as to why? and that input would be mono only.

    ah. that's a puzzle there.

    plug this into the Mac,

    (read through the reviews, might not be a guarantee of success but the closest I am aware of)

    plug this into the phone,
    https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/827820-REG/pearstone_mmsa_103b_stereo_mini_male_to.html
    and plug the other end into the mic input of the other cable.
    plug your headphones into the other port so you can hear what is going on. but regular headphones.
    you will have to play with the volume on the phone and the input level (Sound control panel in System Preferences) on the computer to get it coming at a proper level.
