I recently purchased the latest iPad Air. I have tried to import photos to it from my Canon 7 D mk ii. I have connected the camera with the usb cord provided with the camera and the proper adapter for the iPad. It recognizes the camera, but will not import the photo files, either raw or jpeg. What am I doing wrong?

I have an older iPad and I have to use iTunes to load anything on it. For me there is no other way. Maybe something has changed in recent years.
I only know enough about iPhones and iPads to know that I will never intentionally own anything that Apple has anything to do with.
My sister gave me an ancient iPad for the purpose of me preparing it to be given to a little buddy of ours to be used as a portable photo album and onboard game device.
The thing had been laying in a drawer for years, yet looked brand-new and charged right up and went to working.
When she first handed it over to me, I could plug it into my computer and transfer stuff back and forth just as if it were an external drive --- no special programs needed; and, it was full of very good kid-friendly games that worked wonderfully.
Then one day, Apple somehow found it and "updated" it; we lost all of the games that were working fine and lost the ability to access the many photos that were on it; plus now, the only way the computer can communicate with it is via iTunes which then refuses to load any of the available games, claiming it is incompatible/too old to run them.
After the "update", loading photos is an all or nothing thing; you can't just add or remove a few photos; if you remove one, it removes them all; and, whatever you add overwrites and erases whatever is already in there; it is a nightmare to deal with and I have found no viable solution to make things better.
Apple customer service refused to remove their "update" and revert it back to it's original, perfectly working, condition and hours of internet searching never yielded a solution; in a matter of seconds, Apple turned a perfectly useful machine with a very nice leather cover into landfill material.
With that being said, the wife, on the other hand, through her work, has three versions of iPad, including the latest/greatest, plus some sort of hybrid laptop that ain't a laptop - also Apple, and two of the latest iPhones.
I got her an SD Card reader that plugs into the phones and iPads and she can use it to transfer photos from her camera so that she can E-mail and FaceBook them when away from home.
So far, it is working perfectly --- at least until Apple decides to update that ability out of them.
Maybe something like that will do what you are wanting.
