Is it compatible with iPhone6 and 6s?

It is. I would recommend getting an iPad power adapter so that you can charge your phone and power USB devices when using this adapter (you can charge your phone with the regular iPhone charger with this adapter, but if you have something plugged into the USB port that uses a lot of power, it will stop charging your phone or complain that the connected USB device uses too much power).

Will connecting a lightning charger to this adapter also charge the iPad?
Many musicians use the USB camera adapter to connect USB MIDI keyboards and professional grade audio interfaces to the iPad, but are wary about going into a performance environment while relying on the device's battery. 30 pin connections allowed you to power the iPad while also connecting to the USB host but Lightning requires bulky and expensive items such as the Focusrite dock to do the same. If this device will allow performers to charge or keep the iPad powered while using USB to connect to a controller or audio interface then it will solve a lot of problems for using iOS in a professional environment.

Can I connect an external DVD player and external hard drive (with USB) to an iPad through this?
I have a ton of DVD's (old tech, I know). It would cost a lot to replace my collection and I don't have time to convert them to digital. I do have an external DVD player that connects to my Macbook via USB. I would love to have a DVD player that connects via Bluetooth but that doesn't exist (to my knowledge).
I also have an external hard drive that I use frequently.
I would like the iPad Pro to be my next computer. But for that to happen, I need to be able to use my gadgets with it. I've been waiting to buy an iPad and this is really the one hang up that is keeping me from doing it.
Is now the time?
