    As title suggest, i bit the bullet, ordered the Apple Lightning to USB-C cable, attached it to my 7Plus and copied a file (800 mb video). Avg transfer speed 14.9 mbyte/sec.

    Seriously? Connected legacy USBA-Lightning cable via Apple USB-A to C dongle and same result. I thought the 7 plus has USB3 speeds - is the TB3 port on my nTB Macbook the issue?

    Anyone can confirm this?

    Just found some posts that the 7 iPhone only supports USB2.0 Apple website has no info but i guess my own findings confirm this. Can't believe this. #Cantinnovateanymoremyass.

    I think only the 12.9" iPad Pro supports USB 3.0 speeds via such a connection.
