SanDisk returns to the iPhone/iPad storage market with the svelte iXpand Flash Drive

By

SanDisk's iPhone and iPad storage device has been through a Biggest Loser transformation.

The first generation SanDisk iXpand storage device for iPads and iPhones was launched last year and reviewed by iTWire. It had a lot going for it, but it was on the chubby side.

Now the company's back with its next-generation iXpand Flash Drive, which features a sleeker design, a USB 3.0 connector for faster transfer speeds to Mac or PCs, and a completely redesigned app to manage photos, videos and music.

One of the problems with the iPhone and iPad is that Apple made no provision for removable storage such as microSD memory cards. So SanDisk and other companies have stepped in with accessories that fill the gap but seem less convenient to use than storage that's natively supported by the operating system.

Citing a US survey, SanDisk's ANZ country manager George Saad said "more than 70% of users transfer files off of their iPhones to another storage location."

"With the new iXpand Flash Drive, people can spend more time using their iPhone to capture what they love, and less time worrying about how and where to transfer these photos and videos," he added.

The redesigned iXpand Drive app now provides the ability to save new photos and videos directly to the iXpand Flash Drive, and to automatically back up content from popular social networking sites.

It can still automatically back up the camera roll and contacts, play popular video formats directly from the drive, and encrypt files.

Like the older model, the iXpand Flash Drive is available in 16 ($79.95), 32 ($109.95), 64 ($109.95) and 128GB ($229.95) versions.

It works with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad Pro (12.9-inch), iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini and iPod touch (5th generation) running iOS 8.2 or later. iOS 8.2 or later is required.
