I know Apple makes an SD card reader for iPad Pro but does anyone make a Compact Flash reader?

Not what I know of,what do you need it for? If it's a card in a camera,connect the camera withouth taking the card out,use the USB-Lightning camera adapter.

That's not good for two reasons. The camera can't be used while the images are downloading and it increases the chance of damaging your cameras USB port.

I done in this way ever since the first iPad model,never seen a damaged USB port. And besides,you can choose to do the transfer when you’re not using the camera for anything else. So,I consider what you say as plain b*******t.

Something to consider: I have an older camera that also uses CF. I switched to using an SD card to compact flash adapter like this:

Because my other cameras are SD card-based I can now use the same set of cards across all of my cameras. With CF phasing out, you won't find a reader with a Lightning connector.
