    I have the wonderful lightning SD card reader (and USB to lightning converter, also cool). I used it quite a bit for getting stuff onto an iPad Mini.

    Now I've ordered the MBR12 and I wonder, if the converter is available, whether or not I could use that reader.


    The closest thing I find in the Apple Store is a USB to USB-C converter.

    Basically what I need is a female lightning to male USB-C.

    The things I've found online so far are male to male, such as a USB-C to lightning.

    If Dongles 'R Us doesn't have it, then it most likely is not in existing.

    No, you would have to buy a USB-C to SD-card adapter.

    Apple, for some reason, still don't offer a male Lightning to female USB-C adapter, despite pushing it as the USB-A replacement.

    I don't think Apple would release one, but you could also see if a USB-C tip for a multi-port cable works for data as well. It isn't a guaranteed solution but it could work.
