Right, let’s first connect USB cable to the camera. Now connect the lightning end of Lightning to USB Camera Adapter to the iPad / iPhone. Connect the USB end of the adapter to USB cable which you have connected to the Camera. Turn the camera on (must be in transfer mode).Get your iPhone or iPad, unlock, automatically you will see Photos being opened on your screen along with the import tab. On the contrary, if this doesn’t happen in your case, then open the Photos app, and tap Import. It’s up to you whether you want to import all the photos at once or only the selective ones. As soon as the import is complete, a window will pop-up, asking whether to keep the imported media or delete.

From Camera Using Lightning to SD Card Reader:

Well, if you only carry yourself an SD card of your camera, no worries. This process will guide you how to import photos from the camera using lightning SD Card Reader. Let’s get started right away now. Place your SD card into the lightning SD card reader. Next, connect the SD Card reader with SD card to your iPhone or iPad. Mostly the “Photos” will be automatically be opened, along with an “Import” tab.  And voila! your photos have been imported.


Eye-Fi Card:

Using Eye-Fi card is simple and easy. Eye-Fi Card secures an internet connection from your camera and enables you to see the images that you have clicked through your camera through its accompanying software on your iPad within seconds you clicked the photo.


There is another method which can consume your time neither will I be discussing that. But according to that, you would have to first transfer all the data to your computer first and then to the iPhone and iPad. It does take much time of yours.

Do keep it in mind: for transferring images to iPhone 5 or later, it needs to be iOS 9.2 or later. However, in the case of using a Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter, you need an iPad with iOS 9.3.

Bottom Line:

By following these simple procedures with the handful of easy steps and you will get the desired action that you need to work which is transferring the photos from any camera to the iPhone. Share with friends on social media, update profile pictures or send or whatever you want to do with them.
