Leef iAccess provides small and functional expandable storage for your iOS device
For power-users, one of the more visible shortcomings with iOS is the lack of access to any type of file manager. Such a feature would be handy given that there is no way to expand storage, another gripe for some. In the past, we have seen some ways to offer a bump in storage, but most solutions come in the form of a bulky case, or other ungainly design.

Leef has made a name for itself with a variety of storage related products over the past few years, and its latest offering, the iAccess, brings a stylish and functional accessory for those that want to be able to quickly load media onto their iOS device.

More than just a way to transfer files however, the iAccess will also function as a way to expand storage of an iOS device with the companion app and a microSD card. The app works as a file manager to the storage space on the iAccess.

Available directly from Leef for $49, the iAccess provides a host of added functionality to your iOS device in a small package.

Agreed, this is the opposite meaning of mobile. MicroSD cards should never die, customers should vote with their money and not buy iPhone's or S6/N5, OEMs just see that minority cares about that feature and they will just rape us. I'm glad Sony is still doing it and some of smaller OEMs see that this feature appeals to many people

It's kind of sad how Apple never has put a micro SD slot in any of their mobile devices ever, and people are ok with that, even now. Even Samsung, who removed it from the latest generation of handsets, has it at least some of the time on their devices. But if another OEM did this (never having the slot and continuing to not have it), they would likely be eaten alive by the negative outcry.

Agreed it's a bit stupid but it's an option, it's a really good option for music pics and videos but since you can't put apps on its beginning faze out, was once a must have feature on android and ios will never adopt it for sure.

I wonder, what can be done with expandable storage on an iPhone? Are you able to take pictures directly into it? Listen to music or watching a movie that's inside the card?

Another reason why Apple is over rated crap. I have USB otg and card reading adapters all over the house for my Oneplus One and the most expensive one cost me like $1.08 free shipping. Apple is a joke.

This is half-assed expandable storage since it can't be used system wide for apps, managing OS updates, etc. Just allows for media files and documents, that's not what them big apps come as... I bought the following 2-in-1 MicroSD OTG + USB Adapter, in addition to one of those 128GB MicroSD cards, and it's literally system wide expansion for my OnePlus One. Can install/move apps to it, install OS upgrades from it, on top of managing large media files. Plus, it's an easy method of shearing files without the privacy-invading cloud from my OnePlus One to a friend's MacBook without installing anything on their Mac.
