    Very Satisfied.

    • Written by Robert A from Peoria

    I purchased this after reading the reviews and realizing that most people, for what ever reason are having issues. I have at the time of this post copied and edited over 100 RAW photos with zero issues. I’m using a 5th Generation iPad that is on the current iOS (11.1.2).

    I’m not quite sure why people have been having so many issues but based off of my experience there are none. It is a simple peripheral that is doing as specified.

    It deserves a higher rating than it has received.

    Works with 5th gen iPad and iOS11

    • Written by Simon O from Dundalk

    I was a little anxious before buying this as I had seen a lot of reports that it had stopped working after the upgrade to iOS10.3.2. After an online chat with Emmet at Apple Support, I was reassured and purchased the reader. It worked first time. Mind you, I have not tried anything complicated, just reading pictures, and video clips, from the SD cards of a pair of Nikon cameras into the Photos app.
    My iPad is a Model A1822 running iOS 11.03

    Works as perfect as it should! Stop complaining!!

    • Written by Anthony C from Staten Island

    Not sure why people are having issues with this product..
    I purchased this SD reader today..
    I took about 50 pictures with my Nikon camera with SD card. All photos were in JPG large fine.
    I simply plugged the adapter in my 12.9 iPad Pro with IOS 11.1 update.. The display immediately showed all my images and it gave me the option of selecting one at a time or all images to upload.
    I chose to upload all and the process was smooth and very quick.
    I also tried on iPad 9.7 Pro and iPhone 7s Plus.
    All perfect.
    I highly recommend this adapter for a good excuse to take my digital SLR camera for a stroll for easy upload to iPad to review and editing.

    Works Like a Dream

    • Written by John W from Sydney

    I needed this accessory for my up and coming holiday, reading all the one-star reviews I thought twice, but couldn't think of another option. I'm pleased to say it works like a dream.

    I'm running ios 11.0.3 on, and iPhone 7 Plus and I've had no problems.

    Imports all types of files (pictures, panoramic, HD video) within seconds.

    Plug in the device, your pictures pop up, and you can manually select each picture or tap "Import All" in the top left.

    The device recognises already imported pictures and videos when you plug it in again. Works as expected

    lightning to SD card reader

    • Written by James C from port charlotte

    I have read most of the reviews, and after getting my Reader I found out HAY IT WORKS, WOW....... So what I can tell you is I am running the 10.3.3 software and when I first use it on my phone... notting happened ? So it look liked that the lightning adapter was seated all the way in but is was not, because my phone case was not letting it touch all the way in. So try taking off your case because when I did, it seated all the way and a second later the photo app. open and there was a import tab at the bottom. it works great!!!!!!!

    I paintball and I would transfer all my videos to my phone with the Go Pro app. what a nightmare. I went to apple store in Fresno,ca I seen this and I got it. I went home and tried it out it worked perfect. I would spend hours downloading video's to my phone I now do it in less then 5 min. This thing is cool. I have the iPhone 7 plus running latest iOS. Thanks Apple!

    Great for drone pilots

    • Written by John P from Opelika

    I enjoy being able to review my aerial video's right after the flight on my I-pad or I-phone. Previously, I had to get back to the desktop at home. I have a P3 Pro and use the I-Pad Mini2, just can't say enough about this reader, works great.

    This is fantastic!

    • Written by ELSA F from Elie

    I just got my first Apple product an Ipad Air 2, I bought it to replace my Android Tablet and my laptop PC. I had no idea how I was going to get my pictures from my camera to my ipad. Well this little gadget did the trick. I put my SD card, connected it to my Ipad and it automatically imported all my photos. Easy peasy. I was a little worried because I have absolutley no Apple experience, but so far everything has been simple.

    Works just as I hoped

    • Written by Dave F from Nottingham

    Ordered yesterday at 14:34, despatched 20:55, free delivery this morning 10:15
    Packed effectively and securely.
    Inserted lead, plugged in SD card, instant import.
    Tried 2nd SD card from my wife's camera: just as good.
    All it has to do is keep this up with larger number of photos in due course.
    No, it isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for....
    It would be nice to be able to choose which photos to delete, rather than the all or nothing it offers, but I can live with this.

    Works great with iOS 10.0.2

    • Written by Craig L from Seattle

    This SD reader works great with iOS 10.0.2. Easily transferred JPGs from an SD card to my iPad and didn't destroy the original raw files on the SD card as previous reviewers have said. Great product.

    RAW into JPEG

    • Written by Russel J from Hercules

    Just got this today and immediately tested it on RAW files taken by my Phantom 3 Pro. I read a review earlier stating that it converted RAW files into jpeg files without warning. I used a microSD card with DNG files in it and imported a photo into my iPad Pro's (9.7) Photos app. I then opened the Photos app in my MacBook Pro and waited for it to update with the new file. I found the file and it was still the large DNG file of the original. I think this will be a useful tool to transfer photos into iCloud through my iPad's Photos app without having the need to lug a MacBook around when I travel.

    I have no idea what all the bad reviews are from!?

    • Written by Brian B from Bethlehem

    I have an older(3 yrs) Olympus SP 720UZ with a 4gb SD. I used to have a computer but it died...no big deal because I have an iPad Air 2 (tho next time I am getting a Mac lol). Now I didn't even read the instructions...I took out my SD card and plugged it into my new camera card reader from Apple. From their I plugged my lightening cable into my tablet and it removed the pics from SD card on to my iPad pic folder �� piece of cake....down Loaded 20 pics without an issue and it even kept the old ones on my SD card...

    When I was done I unplugged the cable, removed my SD card from the card part, and put it back in my digital camera reader slot by the battery: simple as that! I am really unsure as to what the negative reviews are about. Perhaps you are all over thinking things...or maybe I'm just smart enough to not have to ��

    ..for quickly transferring from my GoPro to my iPhone 6s Plus. definitely beats transferring wirelessly unless you want to grow old waiting ;}

    Does exactly as it says on the box. 100% love this!
    I do photography and now it's so much easier to share my photos on all my apple devices! I literally take all my photo so on my camera then plug it straight into my iPad and done! Then my cloud puts them everywhere I need them!
    Highly recommend*

    Works with iPhone6

    • Written by Edlenne Fatima A from Cebu

    Was hesitant to buy it at first since some people in the internet says it works well with ipad only but it works perfectly with iPhone. Great when you're travelling and would want to transfer pictures from your camera to phone, and to be able to post it in Facebook or whatever you might want to do with the picture. ;)

    Great idea

    • Written by Michelle S from Killarney

    I got this while on holidays years ago was very useful been used on quite a few holidays to share or show off the pictures rather than waiting till at home.

    It doesn't seem to work as well with my iPad mini 4 though as it did with the iPad mini 1.

    I've not really used with iPhone so not sure how well it works.

    It's Perfect!

    • Written by Mary O from Los Angeles

    Absolutely perfect! Was looking for a quick and easy way to transfer photos from my SD Card to my phone and this is it!

    Initially held off on purchasing it based on the negative reviews but caved in and so glad I bought it. Works perfectly on the most recent iOS 9.2.1 iPhone 6.
