    You can, in theory, with the right adapter. But I find it a bit hit and miss... sometimes it errors and will throw up a message of incompatibility. Other times it’s fine.

    You would need the correct lightening SD card reader. I used to use one with an iPad.

    More to the point is why an iPad pro. I had one for a few days and to be honest didn't get on with it. At the end of the day it's just a little iPad with a big screen. Then again it is a case of horses for courses.

    I would agree, the official Apple lightning SD adapter works perfectly, and has done so with the iPad Air, iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro.

    You know there are 3 iPad Pro models? Not just the 12.9” model, there is also a 9.7” and 10.5”. The screen is superior on the Pro models with a True Tone display (makes a difference for photo viewing/editing and far superior audio. You also get the Pencil for more precise work or note taking if you wish.

    The current iPad 2017 (the Air 2 is discontinued) is a nasty step backwards, it’s bigger and heavier and has a cheaper screen with is not laminated and does not have the anti-reflection coating. I used one for about 6 weeks and hated it after the Air 2.

    Yeah like you say horses for courses, some will gel some will not..

    I am in the gel with it camp.. I have rarely touched my MBA or W10 machine since getting the Pro (w/ Keyboard and Pencil & USB adapter).. I use CC and Affinity for photo editing, GarageBand for music recording(guitar, bass, drums and midi keyboard) it does it quick it does it way beyond a level I need and its the easiest way to do the tasks.

    I actually find it rather good, and have all but stopped using my Macbook Pro since getting one, it's fun for editing images too and great for travel.

    Yes please :D

    I have just posted on the other question on here.
    I use mine for editing a lot and have the cloud based LR subscription. I use a mixture of LR and affinity app perfect for this device.
