SanDisk iXpand flash drive adds 32GB to 256GB of additional storage to your iOS device
Sure, there is no microSD slot that allows you to add additional storage to the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad. But if you have $39.99 to spend, Amazon will sell you the 32GB SanDisk iXpand flash drive. At that price, you are saving $20 or 33% off the regular price. The product works with any iPhone or iPad that supports the Lightning port. On the other half of the device is a standard USB port.

Using a companion app, you can load images and videos from your iOS device to the flash drive where they can stay. Or, you can move the files from the flash drive to your Mac or Windows PC and load them on your computer's hard drive. According to Amazon, the iXpand flash drive carries these features:

  • Free up space on your iPhone by moving photos and videos to your iXpand flash
  • Automatically back up photos and videos from your camera
  • Automatically back up your contacts
  • Watch popular video on your iPhone or iPad
  • Designed with a flexible connector to fit through most iPhone cases
  • High-speed USB 3.0 transfer to and from your computer
  • Secure file storage across your computer, iPhone and iPad
  • Videos automatically saved to the drive if captured from within the iXpand Drive app

Besides the 32GB model, you can add 64GB of storage to your iOS device for $56.49 (29% discount), 128GB of storage for $89.01 (26% off) and 256GB of storage for $249.99. If you're interested in the iXpand flash drive, click on the sourcelink below.

SD card slot with 1TB card installed is more ideal. Just my opinion.

Where do you find these 1TB cards?

I rather buy the bigger capacity iPhone, it's more convenient for the price

I agree. My friend lost all her newborn baby photos on her old S4 because the phone decided to randomly erase the entire card. Something she can't get back anymore.

(actually it's easy enough to recover erased data from non-adoptable microSD card) it's always better to keep backup data on NAS, PC, or extHDD, since you'll never know when your phone will get lost or stolen or bricked by update..

Funny how stupidly overpriced it is ( https://is.gd/5vqfjd ) just to be compatible with them iDevices, yet only 1 app on them iDevices can access it, making it totally impractical as a system wide storage expansion like a normal thumb drive or portable HDD/SSD...but alas, a fool their money will always depart.

Since we are doing quotes about fools: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt."

I wonder if Apple is OK with this. It will undermine Apple's larger capacity iPhone/iPads plus their $5/mo cloud storage. This product could cost Apple $100s of Millions. I wouldn't be surprised if Apple blocks this.

They've been around for a couple years already.
