    Yes it DOES work with iOS12

    • Written by Michael R from Salford

    I was a bit concerned buying the cable due to the two reviews here saying "don't but it doesn't work" etc, however that must have been a problem with just that release of iOS. I have iPhone8+ on the latest 12.0.1 release and the cable works perfectly - bought 22nd October 2018. I use it to connect my Chord Mojo DAC and it works flawlessly, so you can buy with confidence if you have any concerns about MIDI or audio compatibility.

    It doesn’t do the job

    • Written by Robert S from London

    I bought it as apple store staff member on Regent Street in London told me that I won’t have any problems and I can try it at home as there is no way to try it in store.
    I got home just to find out that it doesn’t work for me. I paid, I tried, I will return it.
    Incredible waste of time as I couldn’t try it in store and now, I need to go back there on my expense in order to get my money back.

    No longer works - DO NOT BUY!

    • Written by Jonathan A from North Shields

    This used to be a great product but no longer works since iOS 11.2. I'm now using iOS 11.3 and still all i get is the message: 'this accessory is not supported by this iPhone' - the iPhone in question is an iPhone 8 but it also stopped working on iPad and iPhone SE, all since iOS 11.2.

    Shame on Apple for still selling this!

    I have problems and the chat/phoneline are off duty.

    • Written by David S from Marlborough

    Bought for £ 29 after reading as much as I could. I am trying to import 32 gig sd/micro cf card via a good quality reader and thence to ipad2 OR iPhone 5s to read traffic info( HD) ex dashcam..
    Both iPad and iPhone open either photo prog OR iUSB pro ( which is the Apple certified app from the app store.)
    In both cases, phone or iPad says IMPORT and goes no further.
    Others have said make sure device is fully charged-makes no difference.
    The reader plugs straight into my HP laptop and plays all the video files contained on the card via Windows Media Player or Quicktime. Also, they will play via the usb port on my Sony Bravia smart tv.
    BUT I Want To Play the B....dy things on my iPad.........Help!
    Frustrated from Marlborough.

    Frustrating but simple solution for Cannon Coolpix camera

    • Written by John P from Weymouth

    i bought this cable so that i could download photos onto my iPad so reduce the risk of losing all of my photos on my camera if i lost it. So it was somewhat frustrating when i connected the camera to the ipad only for the screen message saying "uses too much power" and unable to download.

    i have a Cannon coolpix. one of the functions on the camera allows for the camera to be charged using a computer. REMEDIAL ACTION -Go to this function and disable function.

    Connected camera to ipad and it works straight away with no problems. Now all i need to do is connect the camera power lead to the plug and power direct from the mains and not use the computer

    Frustrating but simple solution.

    Worked instantly

    • Written by stuart B from glasgow

    Having read various reviews, performance of this appeared patchy. But, it worked first time on my Nikon D700 to iPad Air. Plug n play! Couldn't be easier! £29.99, but worth the cost, to get almost instant access to edit/share photographs.

    Far from perfect

    • Written by Eric J from Bangor

    First time of using it uploaded photos from my Nikon D2hs and from a small Kodak camera with no problems. However, tried to use it the following day and nothing happened, just an error message " Apple does not recognise device" despite several attempts it simply refused to work. Tried again a few days later it worked again allowing me to upload from 3 different cards. What will happen next time? Just a case of wait and see. I found the experience of using it frustrating in the least

    It wasn't working but then...

    • Written by Kerry M from SouthampTon

    I found a way!! Like many other reviewers, this expensive cable connected fine but nothing was happening. It flashed up "uses too much power" on my iPad Pro.
    I then connected the camera via the USB 3 power connector/adaptor thing and my iPhone 7 which was charging via the plug. Connected the three together and voila, my Nikon D50 imported straight to my IPhone 7 no problem. It wouldn't work with my iPad as there was clearly not enough battery life/ power remaining on it. It only worked on my iPhone when it was charged to over 50%. For those reviewers who have the same flashing "not enough power" make sure the apple device is fully charged and hopefully it should then work.

    Problem solved

    • Written by Jacqueline M from Chorley

    I had similar problems to others with the iPad mini saying the camera needed too much power when it was connected. I scrolled through other reviews and one said they wondered if the problem was that the camera wasn't fully charged. The camera had plenty of charge left but I put it on to charge fully just to try it. Once the charging light went off on the camera I plugged it back into the iPad mini using the adapter and the photos appeared! So now I know what to do but I think this should have been in the tips and troubleshooting section of the instruction booklet as a suggestion for when the power warning appears.

    Like many others I can't connect my camera (a Sony RX100 iv) to the Ipad Pro - I'm told it requires too much power.

    Using with Sony Cybershot

    • Written by Linda D from Hutton

    Having read all previous reviews was very reticent about trying this bit of kit...so bought it from John Lewis knowing that I could return it if it didn't work out. Spent ages with my Sony Cybershot looking how to change various settings. In the end just 'did it' without changing anything and it worked straight away uploading photos to my iPad. Panic over and 100 percent success.

    Does what it says

    • Written by Philip C from Chislehurst

    This does what it promises - it imports photos from a camera or if you have a low power card reader, micro sd cards too.

    A few things that you need to know if using a card reader - photos must be in the right folder called DCIM and the file names must be 8 characters plus the extension, something like 73849399.jpg will work fine.

    I have two card readers - one works, the other says it requires too much power. The working one cost me £1.

    This will actually charge my Sony SBH-20 Bluetooth earphones, so power output isn't that bad, it's just that some card readers are built poorly.

    To import video or photos from things like a GoPro, buy the excellent Photofast CR-8800. Honestly, you won't look back!

    Does not work

    • Written by Dellas B from Blandford Forum

    I bought this Lightning u s b Camera adapter to connect my iPad to my piano as it supports midi. I was able to use my music apps for three months and then it stopped working it did not recognise the piano. I was advised that every thing pointed to the adapter not working so I took it back and got a replacement, to my delight it worked, but for only 14 days. There clearly is something not right with this adapted as it is not only cameras it is not recognising. I bought my iPad and Camera connection so that I could use the music apps. Please Apple do something about this.

    works perfectly

    • Written by Louise K from Calverton

    I was worried about the previous reviews, but I am totally satisfied with this product. it works with my Canon EOS DSLR and also with my old Olympus Camedia. I think people may be having problems with their camera's not being fully charged up when they try to transfer.
