How to Import Photos and Videos from Camera to iPhone in iOS 9.2

Latest iOS 9.2 now supports transfer of photos and videos from SD card using adapter; check the tutorial on how to import photos and videos directly on your iPhone.

Apple has just released a public version of iOS 9.2 with some really needed features. Major part of the update consists of bug fixes, but there’s one feature that deserves a standing ovation; the feature is to directly import photos and videos to iPhone from a USB source.

Earlier, we had to connect our SD card adapter or any other USB device to our PC and copy all the photos and videos to hard drive. Later, we had to copy them back to iPhone. This was a tedious process, which is now simplified by Apple with the new iOS update.
