    "Oops, Apple removed headphone jack since iPhone 7" - You can still use IR blaster with a lightning to headphone jack adapter, but it is time to look for a wireless IR blaster.

  2. Goto Info Tab, make sure there is a green tick besides "IR accessory connected", click "Maximize Headphone Volume"
    Important Notice some IR blaster require twist to certain angle to make it work, what a stupid design, nobody expect to read user manual for such a simple gadget, to make it worse, in certain angle IR blaster have very weak connection, iPhone can detect headphone pluged in, but the IR signal is too weak to control any device, for these kind of IR blaster the only way to make sure a good connection is through visible red light, you can have a look at this youtube video to see how visible red light looks like.
