Apple outs faster Lightning to SD Card Reader

In addition to the $99 Smart Battery Case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, Apple has also introduced Lightning to SD Card Reader, that allows users to easily download photos and videos from digital camera to Apple devices.

The new reader has been updated to supports data transfer at up to USB 3 on iPad Pro. USB 3.0 can reach a signaling rate of 5Gbps, ten times faster than USB 2.0. It also works with iPhone 6s, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and older Lightning-equipped iOS devices, but transfer speeds are limited to USB 2 on these devices, which is also the limit of the old Lightning to SD Card Reader.

After you insert the SD card into the reader, your Apple device automatically opens the photo apps. It supports standard photo formats including JPEG and RAW, along with SD and HD video formats including H.264 and MPEG-4.

As the new adapter looks same as the old one, ensure the model number is MJYT2AM/A that supports USB 3 on iPad Pro and works with iPhones. The old reader model number is MD822ZM/A and is limited to USB 2 speeds on all iPads and doesn't work with iPhones. If you see it, avoid it.

Priced at $29, the Apple Lightning to SD Card Reader is available from Apple Online Store in the US and ships in 3-5 days.
