    This answer to your question probably is coming quite some time late. Above, Apple says it will work with models 5 and above. I purchased this accessory originally for an iPad mini but learned today (through other posts and personally trying it with my SE)...it now works with iPhones. For a long time it'd give an error message saying that it was not meant for this device (whenever plugged into the iPhone 5c) so I resorted to using the iPad whenever I needed to upload camera pics into the iCloud. I'm very happy to see this update!

  • Yes, the lightning to SD card reader works with all iPhones with lightning connectors (iPhone 5 and newer), but ONLY if the iPhone is running iOS 9.2 or newer. So if you have an iPhone 5 running iOS 9.1 or older, it won't work.

    When the lightning to SD reader was first released, iOS only allowed it to be used on iPads. iOS 9.2 unlocked the reader to be used with iPhones and iPad Touches as well.
