the 12.9-inch iPad Pro transfers data at USB 3 speeds, while the 9.7-inch iPad Pro uses USB 2.
does anyone know what speed on ipad pro 10.5?

It is USB 3 speed, I have tested. on my iphone 7plus (usb2) when import A7R II raw file and generate thumbnail takes forever, iPP 10.5 at least 3-4 time faster

oh, I made a mistake
I tested the Lightning to SD Card adapter only.
I don't have the lightning to camera adapter.
However I think it's the same?
It is probably different, the USB3 camera adapter (with a 3rd party SD reader) had been reported by users to be faster than the Apple Lightning SD adapter which I think is only USB2.

I bought the 10.5" iPad Pro over the weekend but only today has in my hands the camera adaptor at work. Can post some results after testing tonight.

I am pretty sure my Lightning SD adapter is USB3
Because there are HUGE speed difference when using with my iPhone 7 Plus and iPP 10.5

You are correct, on the product specs page it says:

It supports data transfer at up to USB 3 speeds on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and up to USB 2 speeds on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and all other iPad and iPhone models.*

So yes, the dongle itself is USB3 ready, if the lightning device it connects to is USB3 (so far only iPP 12.9" gen 1+2, iPP 10.5"), then it operates at USB3. Your test of it being slower on iPhone 7+ confirms that bit.

The 10.5" having USB3 was definitely mentioned during WWDC, but somehow this information isn't listed anywhere in the specs page on Apple website.

anyone can confirm that usb3 speed is not just on 12.9 ipp but on 10.5 as well?

What does it prove? Shows only iPP. We do not have a YES on any other iPhone device?
This is an iPad Accessories forum and the original question was regarding an iPad Pro 10.5 - you should probably check over on the iPhone Accessories forum for your question.

Yes but that accessory is also usable with an iPhone and a comparative test between both will give us clarity on transfer speeds
