SanDisk’s new iXpand flash drive is built with an iOS Lightning connection, making it simple to move data on and off the latest Apple devices.
This drive instantly expands a device’s capacity up to 64GB, giving you lots of storage for photos, movies, documents and other data.
In addition to the flexible Lightning connection, there is a standard USB port to connect with any computer, essentially making it a flash drive designed for iPhones and iPads.
Once you connect the USB end to a MAC or Windows system, you can load the content you wish to transfer to your handheld device.
The single biggest advantage for most users will be the automatic back-up of your handheld device’s photo library. The app has a setting to activate this anytime it is connected to your iPhone or iPad. Price is $60 for 16GB, $80 for 32GB and $120 for 64GB, at www.SanDisk.com.
