Card Reader for iPhone

I need an XQD card reader compatible with my iPhone 12 Pro and my iPad; both with lightning connector.  Do any of you have one that works with the D500?  My camera will now be delivered tomorrow 12/19 and I forgot to order a card reader.  I have googled them but reviews are mixed.  
Thanks

What you probably need is USB to iphone adapter, something like this

You can use regular usb card reader with it. I use one for android and it works like a charm.

The USB connector in the D500 will accept a micro-USB or USB-3 cable, so if you have a lightning connector with eiter one of those USB ends, you can use the D500 as a card reader. You might want to read some additional information, in case Apple has some extra requirements.

Thanks for responding.
So you are saying I need a USB to lightning adapter and then a USB XQD card reader and connect them together?  The link above does not say it’s compatible with XQD card.

You can connect regular USB card reader to the USB on this adapter and connect adapter to your phone. It is does not matter if it is XQD or SD or whatever cardcit is. Also you need a software on your phone to be able to open files. I do not use iPhone, so cannot help you there.

Re: Card Reader for iPhone

The special USB cord that comes with the camera can be used with the adapter mentioned for your IPhone.  You don't need a XQD reader.  You can also upload to a computer with the same cord.
