    SD reader USED to work great

    • Written by Janelle M from Newport

    I have had this SD reader for a few years and it worked really well with copying/moving my DSLR images to my iPhone, that was until the IOS13 update and subsequent minor updates - not anymore. So after purchasing a new adapter that still didn’t work, I realised it was after the update it had stopped working. Contacted Apple Support and after a lengthy chat, I was given a temporary solution. Plug adapter in as normal, open Files app and it will show up in there, which it did. So I was able to copy/move the photos to my phone. But then the next problem, photos are all out of order. Not ideal when copying/moving large amounts of holiday photos.

    I contacted Apple again today and told no new update to fix the problem yet. Told to try to reset my phone after doing a backup. I would at best only lose wifi passwords and ringtones. Well I did that and SD adapter still didn’t work and I couldn’t restore backup, the error said phone not enough memory, when I still have 60GB available free space. So that was my morning, resetting all my settings on my phone! Nothing lost, but I am worried why I can’t restore a backup. Next problem!! Hope my temporary solution above is of help until Apple fix this issue.

    IOS 13 Update

    • Written by Colleen P from Okotoks

    SD card reader stopped working after this update. I can get the pictures to show up on an iPad Air but not on iPad Pro or IPhone 7. BUT, on iPad Air, they only show op until the first video and then everything halts. When choosing pics, and selecting “import selected” nothing happens but a red exclamation mark on the pics. iPhone 7 and iPad Pro show “No pictures to import”. THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING APPLE!!!

    iOS 13 ruined SD Card capability

    • Written by Andy F from PATASKALA

    I updated to iOS 13 and pull no longer import photos from my lightning SD card reader. I’ve tried a lot of things. It finally worked for a bit a while back but now, nothing. Please fix this in your next update. The product I’m rating is iOS 13 as it’s no longer allowing my photos to import : /

    ios13.1.2

    • Written by Alan B from New Orleans

    Your new operating system is riddled with bugs, its causing a lot of apps not to work plus the Apple Lightning SD card reader now does not work on my two iPhones or my iPad. This is extremely annoying. Your standards are clearly falling rapidly. The phones freeze up and causes the picture app to freeze. I have called this in, but I am stonewashed that you have allowed this software release with the amount of flaws and failures. As a result I will not be upgrading any phones or any other device until these fixes are cleared and working properly. I am an amateur photographer but I am sure there is a lot of photographers who aren't making deadlines because of this problem, get it together Apple!

    SD reader

    • Written by Kristi T from Harrison township

    I have two SD readers that worked perfectly until the ISO 13 update now neither of them work. Since they were off brands that I purchased from Amazon I purchased a Apple SD lightning to SD card camera reader on 10/1/2019 and that doesn't work either. I have seen posts that if you open your photos then plug in the SD reader that it works. I have a iPhone X and it does not work. Has anyone had any luck in correcting this problem.

    I have to say I was thinking of investing in the new PRO, I'm starting to change my decision. Maybe it's time to switch to an Android!

    SD card reader not working after IOS 13.1.1 update

    • Written by Brent F from Cabot

    The SD reader is no longer working on my iPhone after updating to IOS 13.1.1. Worked fine prior, but now, it doesn’t even pop up. Apple, please release a fix ASAP! I know I’m not the only one and this is very frustrating as I spent my hard earned money on one of your “compatible” products, only to find it stops working after I update my phone with your IOS. Not right!!

    • Written by Augusto P from General Roca

    I dont know why this isnt fixed. I doubt Apple even read this reviews. But IS a true ripoff that they are sill selling a product that does not work anymore. People are still buying this readers.

    Apple you are a very dissapointing lying greedy corporation. Go help yourselves

    12.4 kills the SD Card Camera Reader (no longer works)

    • Written by Bojan B from Oakville

    iOS 12.4 officially killed the SD Card Camera Reader. And there is no way to revert back to an older OS. This accessories is a must have for me, and it completely made the iPad Pro useless. FIX IT!

    Doesn’t work

    • Written by Warren J from Oxon Hill

    It simply doesn’t work. I am trying to import videos in mp4 format with an eight character naming convention and placed in a DCIM folder. The IPAD doesn’t detect the videos... I have a new IPAD 3 up to date with the latest operating system and Apple has gone silent. I fell for it, but you should not. Do me a favor and don’t make my mistake.

    Suddenly stopped working after iOS update

    • Written by PAUL C from Redhill

    A big reason for buying my iPad Pro was to view and do minor edits to photos on the go. I have an iPad 10.5 pro and official Apple sd card reader which worked really well until the last iOS update when it suddenly stopped working even though the camera sd card and format of photos haven’t changed. It does however still work on my iPhone XR. I have tried rebuilding iPad and all the work arounds I can find mentioned on forums but still doesn’t work. So sd card reader works on iPhone but not iPad (which is useless to me). This is my second Apple sd card reader as the original 30pin one also stopped working on my old iPad after a certain number number of iOS updates. Very disappointing from Apple.

    Tried two, with a Sony A7iii, doesn't work. Tried several cards as well, multiple formats etc.etc. Why is it so hard to implement something SO basic with Apple?

    Does not work after iOS 13 Upgrade!!

    • Written by Stephen C from PARIS

    I upgraded to iOS 13.

    When inserting it, it does not show the "import" tab from the app Photos.
    I need the card reader for, working on my professionals pictures, importing 4K video for editing, so the fact it doesn't work with the new OS is a disaster.
    When I read all the complaints about this adapter, it's always after an upgrade; Apple can you please explain us what is the workaround to make this expensive adapter work after an upgrade?
    Thnx

    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.

    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."
