Infrared transmitter for iphone

Have become frustrated by the poor quality of IR handsets for TVs and cable STBs now wondering if there are “dongles” that I can plug into my iPhone 14 that can give me control over my TV (a Sony as it happens) and potentially my cable set-top-box. There appear to be a few of these dongles on the market but not enough reviews to say if they work or not. Anyone here tried (and succeeded) with these things?
