Issues to Transfer Sony XAVC S to iPad/iPad Pro/Air/Mini?

I’ve been wondering If I can import videos taken with my Sony HDR-AS100V to an Ipad air or mini Retina, using the ”lighting to sd card camera reader adapter” by apple. Does an ipad support xavc s ? In other words, can I play xavcs videos on an ipad, So maybe some of you have an ipad and you guys can tell me. Smiley Happy.

I just upgraded to the latest firmware and bought a new SD card so that I’m able to shoot the new XAVC-S format (from Sony A6000) but discovered the Sony PlayMemories app cannot transfer XAVC-S videos to my iPad, only pictures.

Has anyone found a good way to import Sony 4K XVAC-S video (from Sony A7Rii) directly to an iPad Pro?
I know it hasn’t worked for sometime, but I am hoping someone found the right adapter or setting to make this work. I purchased an iPad Pro partially for editing 4K video from my Sony A7Rii on the fly. Unfortunately, it does not seem to work. I have purchased the new camera kit and the latest Apple cables, and it still will not work.
