    Works with my iPhone 8 iOS 12.3

    • Written by Natalie S from Toronto

    So I know the instruction book only refers to iPad, but I suspect it would take up A LOT of room to type out every. single. compatible. product. I also read that iOS 13 or later doesn't work, my iOS is 12.3 so it was fine.

    Following the instructions EXACTLY as they're written:
    1. I insert the SD Card (32gb Kingston, SD HC 30MB/s) into the Adapter
    2. I plugged the adapter into my iPhone 8 (screen already on and on the home screen, when I did it with my phone locked it didn't load anything and I had to unplug the adapter and plug it back in)
    3. Waited a second or two, and the Photo app launched automatically with the images on the card and I could select what to import.


    Using this when I'm on vacation so I can transfer some photos from my Canon camera to post on IG or FB while we're away or send to my family so they can see what my toddlers are getting up to.

    Possible fix if the SD Card reader stops working

    • Written by Ron V

    This product worked then stopped working. What I did to get it working again was to set the correct time on the camera, it was set ahead of the correct time. Once I did this it worked again!

    Avoid upgrading to iPad OS 13 if use this. Otherwise good. APPLE FIX BUG.

    • Written by Paul H from ossett

    I upgraded to Ipad OS 13.

    Not only doesn't this work in Ipad OS 13 (and seemingly IOS13) but upon inserting it, it totally locks the lightning port so it will then not even connect to a charger or a computer until reset.

    I need the card reader for importing 4k video for editing, so the fact it doesn't work with the new OS is a disaster.

    BUT this is beta software, but its public beta so that should be sorted.

    Apple please fix this major bug ASAP. I had a heck of a job rolling back my software to 12.

    Does not work on IOS 13

    • Written by Jonathan N from Los Angeles

    I have used multiple sd cards and it will not read any of them on my iphone x using the IOS 13 beta testing.
    Tried it on another friend’s phone with the beta test and works completely fine

    Read and Learn

    • Written by Steve N from Sydney

    All the negative reviews about not being able to download are written by people who need to read Edward de Bono (lateral thinking). If you double click the home button on your i-Thing and close the Photo program after your first foray, amazingly all the photo's on the SD card appear!
    Not rocket science guys but you do have to restart "Photo's" every time you want to use it - the device does everything it claims to do if operated correctly. I've used it on i-Pad Mini 5, i-Phone X, i-Pad Pro and have had no problems at all. Camera's have been Sony and Panasonic in both RAW and J-PEG.

    Doesn't work. $30 wasted

    • Written by Steve K from New Bern

    Bought Apple's Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader today for a trip I'm starting in three days. Plugged it in with an SD card with one JPEG from my Canon, it shows up on the screen of my iPad Pro (IOS 12.3.1), lets me choose it to import, then does nothing except give me "1 Item Remaining" and offering me to "Stop Import."

    I have bought 2 of these devices now, neither of them work. If you think your doing something wrong your not. Despite what people are saying about formatting they are also wrong. I have tried RAW format which failed, I tried making sure my SD card images were in a DCIM folder which they were. I tried the device on my I phone 8, 7 , I pad AIR all running on the current 12.3.1 update. NOTHING WORKS. I would genuinely suggest if you want the ability to reliably be able to do this switching to a another device that uses SD cards for storage as Apples closed system will not allow you the flexibility you will need.

    Works as it should

    • Written by Axel R from Garden Grove

    I have been using it to transfer videos and photos from my camera to my iPad Pro 10.5. So have not really encountered any hiccups. It’s fast, reliable. I will warn you, not all file types are readable. I used AVCHD for a while, but couldn’t figure out why it was not reading until I changed the file type to mp4 or mov. Either way it is still great and works if you don’t have a computer on the go.

    Extreme sd card not uploading

    • Written by gavin I from Bridge of Weir

    Hi folks some good info on here. I bought this device yesterday and it’s great for basic sd cards absolutely superb upload speed. However I have 2 faster SD’s for my camera and the images are showing on the iPad screen but haven’t uploaded it’s almost like they are frozen. I can’t seem to solve the issue and I need the faster cards for my camera. Otherwise would have been 5 stars. I tried deleting the images off the screen however it sat with the whirling wheel on the screen and did nothing for over an hour?! Good piece of kit for the basic sd cards.

    It only recognize DCIM but not MP_ROOT folder, where most SONY cameras put the video in.

    Works perfectly

    • Written by Thomas M from Brooklyn

    Guessing iOS 12 has been updated since all these scathing reviews have been written. Just bought mine to replace the old 30 pin camera connection kit and it seems to be super fast with no issues. (I tried really hard to not say 'as fast as lightning')

    • Written by Benjamin C from Kapolei

    I bought this item at Best Buy 3 weeks ago and at first i doubted if it really works because of bad reviews but i bought it anyway for my iphone xs max. I shoot raw and i could transfer all the raw pics to my iphone. I had my phone updated to ios 12.3 last night and tried again today, good to say it is working transferring my raw pics.

    SD card Reader

    • Written by Kisha K from Landisville

    Works well on lower GB cards, but...My iPhone 6S plus nor my brand new iPad Air 3 will NOT acknowledge my 32GB SD card. Very frustrating that technology can’t keep up with each other. I just purchased the iPad and thought it would read the higher GB cards - NOT! It will acknowledge lower cards, however. I travel a lot and am a photographer so not being able to view my photos on my iPad is frustrating that I can’t use the higher GB cards! So guess the problem is with the phone and iPad not the reader.

    Works as advertised

    • Written by Bernd S from San Diego

    I can confirm this adapter, part number MJYT2AM/A, model A1595, works with iOS 12.2 on iPhone 7 and iPad 6. I can import pictures and movies from my Canon camera and DJI drone. I could not import AVI files from my Trail camera, so there are some limitations on what movie codes are supported. Files import with their original file names, in original size with EXIF details. Files will be placed in Camera roll as well as special import folder if so chosen. I tried different SanDisk SD and microSD cards up to 64 GB and all work fine. I am not sure why some people report problems getting their adapter to work (older model?, not genuine Apple product?). 4-stars since it is quite expensive.

    Works well if you accept its limitations

    • Written by Michael G from Wigan

    Works well rapidly importing images and videos from cameras saved to an SD card to the iPhone/iPad. Just don’t expect it to do anything else.

    It allows handy full screen viewing and deleting of images/videos on the card before you import, the transfer is one way only. You can’t play the videos until you’ve imported them though which is frustrating, I use this for reviewing hundreds of images/videos taken by a trail cam. If you want to do anything else then you’re out of luck, although there are some work arounds on the net that allow importing of other files. Apple evidently doesn’t want this device being used as handy extra storage for i devices or as a way of circumventing iTunes... Looking at some of the other reviews Apple should be more open about this.
