Apple has updated the official website of the adapter mentioning the iPhone together with the iPad (before it only mentioned the tablet), confirming also that the compatibility goes from the iPhone 5 to all the later models of the smartphone. What is no longer certain is that this adapter will reach the USB 3.0 speeds we discussed.

The USB to Lightning camera adapter is not what many users dream of having. Yes, it allows you to connect USB devices to your iPhone, but Apple only limits it to cameras for those using non-SD card models (XD or Sony MemoryStick, for example).

Apple removed support for keyboards and other accessories due to excessive battery consumption on the iPhoneiPad

In the past we could connect some extra devices like keyboards, but Apple limited this slide because this kind of accessories forced too much on the phone’s battery . So no, even if you see a USB port that fits the Lightning, there is no total freedom to connect anything.

Finally, it seems that compatibility is exclusive to iOS 9.2 . So if you’re planning to buy this adapter so you can transfer photos from your camera to your iPhone or iPad, it’s imperative that you have the latest version of iOS installed on your phone.
