This process takes time and resources. Generally downloading to phone takes approximately 3.5 minutes to download large 512MB files. For this demonstration video my file size was small, a whopping 89MB.

This process must be monitored throughout to ensure you don’t lose the connection or the app doesn’t stall out or yo will need to start over. The other side note to recall, you are using WiFi connection which will drain your batteries. My take, choose your download process wisely and use it only if you really need to.
One other way to download to phone, which is significantly faster, use an Apple card reader adapter dongle-thingy. You know what I’m talking about, right?
