Your iphone doesn't "drive" jack shit. The dongle does. The stock apple dongle is just fine for cheap and low end iems but it's not going to properly drive a good pair and IIRC it's limited to 24/96 output, as are most dongles for the iphone. You can get a good dongle for under 100 or a great one from 250-500 that's a bit larger and will drive anything up to planars.

Idk about you, but my iPhone XR can't drive any pair of IEM's and I usually have to get it going through a DAC of sorts to feel like I'm getting the most out of my streaming. Plus the Apple dongles don't seem sophisticated enough to really carry the signal to a pair of IEM's with more drivers than say an easy pair of Bose Pro earbuds.
