The new iOS 9.2 lets iPhone users import photos directly from a USB source through Apple’s USB Camera Adapter. The data transferred is still going to operate at USB 2.0 speed, but having the choice to work on photos or videos shot on normal cameras is a nice feature for iPhone users.
In addition, it works just as it does on the iPad, which would be new for iPhone users. Before iOS 9.2, when trying to connect a source or camera to the iPhone, users would be met with an error message noting that the connected device wasn’t supported. However, if you’ve updated to the latest version of iOS 9 (iOS 9.2), you shouldn’t see the error message anymore.
Furthermore, this update comes directly after Apple’s release of a new Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader, which is mainly geared towards the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The iPad Pro does support USB 3.0, which is more fitting for today’s high quality videos.
