Wow. What a great experience. I connected my iPad to my new Surface via USB and some magic happened. Imagine a Microsoft device making import from an Apple device transparent.
Right after I plugged in the USB connection, my surface displayed:
So I tapped. Next, a window with choices appeared:
I selected Import photos and videos without having high expectations, but, it works just like it does with a supported connected camera:
I selected Import:
And then I selected Open folder.
The Pictures Library displayed the imported folder with a date. The date of November 1 turned out to be the last date of the last screen capture I did on my iPad.
I wanted something more descriptive than a date,so I opened Windows Explorer on the classic desktop and renamed the folder to Imported from iPad:
And back in the Photo App, the folder was renamed.
All in all, a great experience!
