MV88 Remote vocal recording?

I have a really talented musician friend who isn't able to come to my (or any) studio to record vocals because of Covid-19 quarantine concerns. I thought the MV88 with her iphone would be a good option for her to be able to send vocals without having to get a whole home studio setup of her own. Now I'm curious if this will even work at all, since the microphone cable seems to take up the headphone jack on the iphone. Is it possible for her to listen to the beat in headphones and record with the microphone simultaneously, so that a ridiculous amount of the beat doesn't bleed through the vocals? I know it comes with a headphone jack but the instructions are immensely confusing and vague. What can be done?

The earphone jack will only work on older iphones, the ones that had a separate Lightning input and earphone input.

true for the first version, the second has an additional headphone out for monitoring.
they are good. i zse them mainly for recording gigs and rehearsals, never tried them as vocal mics.

Ah, I had no idea there was a second generation. I've been largely unimpressed with mine but it's an improvement over the built-in mic of course.
