      I've been waiting for this adapter for so long

      Ever since I got my iPhone 6 Plus, I have been using the original Apple USB Camera Adapter to connect it to a USB keyboard. This new adapter fixes all the issue Ever since I got my iPhone 6 Plus, I have been using the original Apple USB Camera Adapter to connect it to a USB keyboard. This new adapter fixes all the issues I had with the old adapter. With the old adapter, I couldn't use my Apple Aluminum USB keyboard with my device because it has a hub and uses too much power. With the new adapter, I can just plug in a Lighning cord and I can connect my Apple Aluminum USB keyboard with my device. Best of all, the brightness, volume, play, rewind, and fast forward keys all work. I can even connect a second USB keyboard to one of the USB ports on the side of the Apple keyboard and use both keyboards at the same time. The other complaint I had about the old adapter was that you couldn't use USB devices and charge your device at the same time. This adapter allows me to both power USB devices that use more power than my device can provide and charge my device at the same time. One thing to note though is that if you use a little iPhone cube charger, you may not be able to charge your device very quickly if you have a USB device plugged in that requires extra power. Your iOS device will also complain that a device uses too much power if the connected USB charger (like the iPhone charge which is only 5 watts) does not provide enough power to power the USB device you are trying to connect. I have both the 12 watt iPad charger and the small iPhone chargers, and I have never had any problems with power as long as I use the 12 watt iPad charger. I can use both power hungry USB devices and charge my iPhone 6 Plus at the same time with the iPad 12 watt charger connected. My guess is that this is why this USB camera adapter is said to be only compatible with iPads. iPads mostly come with the 12 watt or 10 watt charger, and people with iPads don't need to go out and buy it, and they are less likely to attempt to plug it into a little iPhone charger. If you have trouble with your iOS device complaining that you don't have enough power even with a USB power adapter connected, try an iPad charger or something that will give you more wattage. That way, you will have enough power to go around.

      It works-sorta

      I got this adapter to use with my iphone 7plus to backup RAW photos while off the grid. Transfer speeds with a Kingston USB 3.0 card reader are good (7minutes f I got this adapter to use with my iphone 7plus to backup RAW photos while off the grid. Transfer speeds with a Kingston USB 3.0 card reader are good (7minutes for 6.4GB of images) however the problem is that the adapter consistently fails to transfer all of the files on my SD cards. It is typically missing 5-10% of the files. While that's "close" it's unacceptable from a backup perspective. I can find no pattern in the files to explain this. All files are taken with the same Nikon camera in the same format and there is nothing unique about the size or other attributes of the files that are not transferred. If I choose delete at the end of the transfer sometimes I can re-insert the card and the files that were missed are then picked up. Other times these files continue to be invisible to the adaptor even though they are still on the card in the same directory and can be dealt with normally by other devices. I have experimented with a number of cards containing different images and the result is the same and doesn't improve even when I reduce the number of GBs of files to be transferred. I've spent hours troubleshooting trying to get this to work because it would be a great solution however I there isn't much point in a backup solution that is consistently unreliable so this little guy is going back. I might give it another shot when iOS11 rolls out and is stable but for now this device just doesn't'[t cut it.

      USB3 devices only work on 10" iPad Pro

      On smaller iPad Pro it complains there no enough power, when using usb drives or readers instead of fall back to usb 2 as description imply. Kind of misleading.
