    An essential for any travel photographer

    Really useful accessory for any travel photographer. I have found it very useful for quickly getting a lot of photos off my camera onto my phone for editing (quicker and simpler than my Fujifilm X100T's built in wifi) and also allows me to immediately back up all the photos from my trip to my iCloud photo library

    Essential purchase - probably could be slightly cheaper though!

    Fantastic piece of kit

    Bought this SD card reader with great trepidation after reading several reviews suggesting it may not work or if it does would not transfer videos. iPhone 6s running IOS 10.3.3. SD card from wildlife cam. Works perfectly. Can choose which photos or vids to transfer. Very pleased with purchase.
    Did buy from official Apple site to avoid potential fakes.

    lightning to SD card reader

    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!!!!!!!

    Just like all of the other reviews, the reader is either slow or just isn't detected by the iPhone. I have an iPhone 6, and i tried multiple ways of connecting the cable to the phone and card into the reader. My phone simply doesn't detect it. No import option appears. Such a disappointment. DO NOT BUY. Most of the reviews that say it works are from previous IOS updates. THIS DOES NOT WORK WITH RECENT IOS.

    Does what it says on the box, but not a tool for Pro's

    My comments are limited to the following. Used with an iPad 10.5 Pro. Only used to import Nikon Raw images. I shoot a lot of frames in one sitting. Purchased as an alternative to using Eye-Fi Mobi card.

    I agree with other comments posted. Whilst it does what it says (imports photos from SD to iPad) it's very narrow in terms of what it does. It automatically launches the iPad Photos app and provides thumbnails which can be selected. The only choice for these is to import or delete. Apparent import is reasonably fast, but you're left wondering what's happened or is happening. Photos is pre-occupied with it's way of organising content and it will also attempt to upload all of your shots to iCloud (if you've turned that feature on). I shoot large numbers of frame at a time (typically 700, 24 megapixel, NEF). I'll use this product as a way of getting to look at photos in the field, fast but it's so disruptive to my workflow that I doubt it will be my usual choice).

    Recommend you don't use this if your iPad is low on power.

    Recommend NEVER (and this goes for any application) allowing iPad to delete some, or all of the shots on the card being read. Only ever delete card contents when you are certain they're on your preferred storage, and even then only by using the Camera's own card format, or photo delete function.

    Would urge Apple to allow this tool to work with other Graphics Apps on iPad, and/or, allow full size viewing of frames as part of the review import process. At present you're forced to import all frame before you can start making editorial decisions.

    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!

    Fix in next IOS

    My SD reader has very spotty performance to say the least. It is frequent for the import tab to not pop up when I connect the reader. When the tab does pop up, it's hard telling if it will load the photo previews. I've found that larger cards or cards with more files tend to perform worse. Apple, please improve the compatibility and performance of this product soon! Up to this point, purchasing this item has been a regret!

    Waste of time and money

    Just got this home and it does not work. looks like the latest iOS release wiped out support for this, so why is Apple still selling these?

    Works fine on iOS 10 but stopped with iOS 11 beta2

    The SD adapter isn’t working at all on my iPad Pro 10.5 running iOS 11 public beta 2. It works as advertised on iOS 10 on my iPad Air 2 and iPhone 7 Plus. I haven’t run into any issues thus far with SD card compatibility. I’ve tested Lexar and Sandisk.

    Slow slow very very slow

    Difficult to believe you can match such dreadful software with modern hardware. Its an embarrassment. Even more so as apple are really a leading software company. This just goes along with the recent spate of dreadful software from apple. Primitive in the extreme.

    A waste of £40 as my mifi is infinitely faster with a wireless reader and supports streaming.

    Ranks along side the worst from china.

    It works on the latest iPad Pro 10.5

    Bought this with a lot of hesitation after looking through all the user reviews about it not working with iOS updates.

    It took one to two minutes for the Photos app to load all the photos in the SD card. I can choose to import all or select a few to import. These will be transferred to the iOS device under "Last Import".

    If you're using a 3rd party case, do take note of the cutout for the Lightning port. I had to force the adapter through the cutout of my 3rd party case.

    ¡It stopped working!

    It's simply not possible. I bought this device at the beginning of this month and now, thanks to the 10.3.2 update, I cannot use it. PLEASE FIX THIS.

    Sorely disappointing

    By the time I finished the Amazon return process for this product, the Photos import menu still hadn't previewed the photos on my SD card. I'm not sure if the poor performance is due to the reader or Apple Photos, but since they're both Apple products I don't see an acceptable excuse. If you're looking to use this product to transfer photos from an SD card to your iPad for preview or editing, this is NOT a solution. I couldn't even see my most recent photos or choose to view the most recent at the top, which would've been somewhat of an acceptable workaround. I rarely write reviews but as a 20-year Apple user I couldn't pass this one up. (I'm using an iPad Mini A1490 with a Lexar Pro 1000x SDHC card.)

    Stopped working with 10.3.2 update

    In the spirit of your creator, please fix the update that made my camera SD card reader useless. Steve would not be pleased with his company attitude. ��
