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:Screenshot (10)

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:

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!
