Ricoh GR Firmware update via iPhone/iPad

Hi there

I really want to buy a Ricoh GR III.

But there is some problem I have. I do only own an Apple iPhone and iPad.

I wonder if it is possible to do the firmwareupdates with an iPhone or iPad. Sure there has to be a wired connection with the camera. But does it work? Does anyone have any experiences? Or is it only possible with a Mac/PC?

Thank you so much!

To upgrade the firmware, you just need something that can unzip a zip file and copy a specific file to the camera's SD card root folder. So, as long as you have a lightning to USB-C cable to connect to the camera, or an external SD card reader compatible with your phone/ipad, you should be good to go.

Zip files should be no problem.
