Wired connection EOS Rebel T6i camera to iPhone

I'd like to connect my Canon T6i by wire to my iPhone SE.  I have found the wireless photo transfer consumes camera battery very quickly and I am hoping that does not happen by wire.  Is there a specific adaptor and/or wire I need to connect these two devices by wire?

I would recommend Apple's card reader adapter instead (SD card slot on one end, and lightning connector on the other; I believe the SE uses lightning).  They also make a USB-C based adapter as well.

As for a cable offering direct camera connection, I'm not aware of any and it may not work at all, or not as good as a dedicated card reader.

👍Ricky's correct.  I did this with my Android phone months ago and I think someone else confirmed it worked with their iPhone.

Super fast and convenient.
