Remember - there is iOS 13.1.2 for the iPad, released on 9/24, and iPadOS 13.1.2 released the same day. Are you SURE you have the iPadOS version?

You may be right - the issue may be Apple can’t read your ARW files.

And yes, Apple has enhanced the editing tools in the latest iOS - for both iPhone and iPad. The combination of the latest iOS and the iPhone 11 Pro Max is really wonderful. For the first time, I have a lot of confidence in using an iPhone as a serious camera.

The update from iOS 12.x to iPad OS 13.x on iPad is automatic and goes through exactly the same process as older updates.

Currently iPad OS 13.x cannot read A7RIV RAW files - the same with Mac OS Catlina. No support yet.

There is another limitation - current version of Lightroom Mobile for iPad cannot import files directly from attached storage or camera. Have to move them via iPad's storage.

Not true at all with iPadOS. iPadOS loads them directly into Lightroom Mobile from an attached hard drive. All you do is click on the ARW (or JPG) file on your hard drive that you see in the Files app that you want to load into Lightroom Mobile, click the upward arrow-box at upper right of the screen, and select LR Mobile. It then offers you the choice "next time you open Lightroom" or "open Lightroom now."

I swear you guys have a different iPadOS than I do.

But this is limited to 10 files at once.

The option to insert into LRM directly all files from a card is to copy to local storage and then open in Lightroom. It's Adobe time to fix LRM so that it can use file import natively (currently in LRM file menu there is no external storage)

i have the same iOS as the OP.  There is only one iOS 13+ for the iPad and it is now called iPad os.

and yes I can also load directly into Lightroom mobile from an attached hard drive or from photos on the iPad.  I also love the new slide over and multitasking.  While multitasking isn’t new it is much better able to select which background app to slide it for example.  Enjoy

This hasn’t been true for years, especially not for USB-C enabled iPad Pros.

I’m not sure I understand these comments, however, I don’t get anywhere near USB-C speeds when connecting an A7r iii or iv directly between the camera and iPadPro 11 (latest version) with iOS 12 or 13 (latest version) with a usb c cable. Nor when using a usb-c sdxc card reader plugged into the iPad. In either case I am getting approximately usb 2 speeds. This is with Sony tough 300 mb/s cards giving me around 60 mb/s read speeds. The same card plugged into a Mac transfers much faster. I’m not sure what the bottleneck is.

Having said that I agree with the OP that the iPadPro is a beast and is handling large files well once they are on the iPad.  While I can’t edit raw A7r iv files yet the unopened jpgs are around 60 mb unopened and are editable basically in real time in photos and lr.

Thanks for info.

I am still deciding the choice between my iPad Pro 2018 and 13" MBP/r.  So far I had only carried latter.  MBP/r although heavier but directly read and backup SD cards and has full Mac OS X power to process photos in trips in full version of Lr.  Or at least allow me to sort some photos in the FastRAWViewer before returning home for further processing.  But I can see iPad advantage in much lighter weight when I already carrying overweighted camera gear
