Hi

Apparently, it is relatively straight forward to get digital sound out
of an iPhone / iPad:

Has anybody tried this? Does it work?

If it works nicely, it might be a good alternative to the touch when
using iPeng?

Should be pretty straightforward indeed.
There are few docks (when the Lightning Connector was introduced docks had already come out of fashion and you probably don't want to use a straight cable to your DAC (because you can't charge then) but otherwise all newer iPhone models and all iPads make for pretty good players.
iPeng currently supports 96kHz/24Bit playback, we might up that to 192kHz in the future although it's a bit of a bandwidth/load tradeoff (that's almost the data rate of an HD video stream and iThingies obviously only have WiFi).

I've written an article about it when we first introduced the HD playback in iPeng. It's a bit outdated, most of the limitations on the iOS side no longer exist today but the general capabilities are all still there.
