I own: the Shure MV88, the Zoom Capsules (M/S and XY) as part of the Zoom H6, the Sennheiser Ambeo Headset and the Lewitt DGT650. The Lewitt is pricy but the best and has the advantage of being usb compatible and can be monitored. The Shure allows good results too and the new version is very flexible. Also I really like the Zoom recorders for the price I would prefer the Shure on an iPhone, never tested the Rodes. I bought the Ambeo 'cause I got them very cheap last week. The quality is very good but I haven't tested them for music and they only have two gain settings.
The Lewitt is not as easy and fast to set up as the Shure, Rode and Zooms, but offer the best audio quality. The only other combination I use that is as good or a bit better are S502 mics from Superlux (incredible for 130,-) and a Zoom or Sounddevices recorder. Not an iPhone but the mic and a small recorder might be less expensive than a really decent iPhone setup.
