How to mount iPhone 8+ behind iPad?

How are people planning to mount an iPhone camera behind your iPad at events my idea was to take plastic cases and put it on both the iPad and iPhone and then double-sided tape the cases back to back
But I would also like some way to tilt just the iPhone camera if possible Maybe some sort of universal car mount.

I found that having the ipad off to the side was better. Because people take a while to choose which photos to print and enter email addresses etc. So i usually have the iphone on a tripod facing subject with lights nearby, and ipad over to the side on props table. The bonus is while the ipad is in use, i can manually take photos of the next group with blueprint on the iphone (photos taken there immediately transfer to the ipad)

That's a good idea. Is there an iPhone specific tripod mount you recommend? the universal ones with clamps just dont' seen secure enough.
If you are using rear camera then people dont' get a live preview which is not a big deal when using the wide angle lens, but when using green screen with the normal lens it is a little less forgiving on alignment.
I might try using multiple pairs of iphones and ipads, is there any reason that would not work?

Here is the mount i use for iphone. Super sturdy. Be careful not to overtighten.

The remote it comes with of course works with wifibooth ;)

Re multiple pairs not sure exactly what you mean but if on same wifi network then make sure to use 480 video resolution otherwise your wifi will get overloaded very quickly

Keep in mind people can still see their live view video on ipad if no one is using the ipad (i keep it pointed towards the subjects)

that is good to know. I was just assuming the video signal was being transmitted over Bluetooth when using the blueprint app. now I know.

when using the green screen and telephoto iPhone lens I think the remote will come in handy because people deffinetely have to be a few steps back to fit in the camera.

Yes you are right. I usually put it in green screen mode (dual camera mode), then position the tripod after - well back.
