FYI ...  

Since, with freeware, you can instantly turn any iOS mobile phone or iPad
into a read/write USB stick ... suitable for copying photos taken on that
iOS device (or for copying feature-length movies over USB to that iOS
device, for example), please see JF Mezei thread posted today for details.

o IOS 13 support for USB devices

Um, isn't that always in effect whatever any  digital camera does anyway  
? Or did the Lightning connect thing somehow cripple IOS wrt  
read/writability of pix from external devices ?

Apple, crippling things ? Naaa  - not possible.

ios devices have always showed up as a standard digital camera when
connected to a computer, no additional software needed.

they do not. quite the opposite. they make things easier, one reason
why their products are so popular.

copying photos from an iphone to a computer doesn't need a lightning
cable.

The Linux ifuse (fuse = Filesystem in USErspace) utility mounts an apple  
Iphone FS running IOS 9 perfectly well. IOS 13 not needed.



ifuse --help

Usage: ifuse MOUNTPOINT [OPTIONS]
Mount directories of an iOS device locally using fuse.

  -o opt,[opt...]    mount options
  -u, --udid UDID    mount specific device by its 40-digit device UDID
  -h, --help        print usage information

  --documents APPID    mount 'Documents' folder of app identified by APPID
  --container APPID    mount sandbox root of an app identified by APPID
  --root        mount root file system (jailbroken device required)

Bear in mind, nospam conveniently forgot (or is ignorant of) a few things.

We're talking read and write to and from the iOS device from anything else
(anything that plugs into USB will work just fine that's data)

It's clear nospam is either igorant of that fact or ignoring it.
o But read and write is a critical fact indeed.

Similarly, nospam is either ignorant or ignoring another fact
o We're talking the _entire_ visible file system on the iOS device

Read and write.

So be careful about what nospam wrote
o Either he's supremely ignorant of these facts or he's ignoring them.

But they're still facts
o Very important facts in fact.

Read and write to and from iOS device, for free; if you know how.
