    (crosspost from MacRumors news thread)

    Hmm...not convinced by this so called USB 3.0 speed

    Lexar 64GB 600x Speed

    310 files, just over 5GB of data. iPad Pro, 3minutes 15 seconds
    iPhone 6S Plus, 3 minutes 37 seconds

    That's not the big difference I was expecting! Desktop PC Lexar USB3.0 reader, 60 seconds for the same data

    I suspect that because it is many files rather than one big file, that the speed of transfer is dictated by the processing of the pictures more than the transfer rate itself.

    The bottleneck of the data transfer speed, as mentioned by many forum members before, is clearly not at the Lightning port.

    Does it charge the iPhone 6s plus faster if I connect the other end to the usb 3.0 port of a MBP vs. to an iPad power adapter?

    the item number. also the description of it on the web page should state if its the latest one.
    i got this one direct from apple online so i would not have any issues.

    Mines A1441.
    I got it from a retailer a few days ago, not apple.

    What are the 3.0 ones?

    If you look on the very bottom of the box, there's this [usb3.0], the Apple Store price sticker may cover this as the box is narrow but it should be there underneath
