SanDisk iXpand Flash Drives Wrap Around Your iPhone

 |  |  |  |  June 24, 2016

No matter how much storage we have in our phones, it is never enough. Our music, photos, video, and app collections are always growing. Forget having to delete files so you have room to keep adding new media. SanDisk’s new iXpand Memory Case will boost your iPhone’s storage capacity, without the need for an external drive hanging out of your phone’s Lightning Port. Instead, its storage is hidden within a phone case.


The protective iXpand Memory Case wraps around your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus and connects via the Lightning port. You’ll need to use SanDisk’s app to take advantage of all that extra space though. The case can be set to automatically back up your phone’s Camera Roll, and has options for protecting everything stored on it through encryption.

It comes in 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB models for $60(USD), $100, and $130, respectively, and are available from Amazon. The case also offers a removable 1,900 mAh battery attachment for $40, which allows the iXpand Memory Case to boost your iPhone’s run time in addition to its storage capacity. Seems like a pretty good solution if you need extra storage space, and don’t want to rely on the cloud for it.
