SanDisk’s iXpand range flash drive is a popular choice for iPhone/iPad users with its support for both Lightning connector for iOS devices, and USB connector for the desktop. With the flash drive, you can copy and backup files between iOS devices and Macs/PCs.
SanDisk has upgraded the range with a new wrap around design and added USB 3.0 speed when using the drive on your Mac. In addition, SanDisk has upgraded its iXpand Drive app to work with the new hardware.
iXpand Drive app is required to use the flash drive as third party apps are not able to access the flash drive directly due to Apple’s iOS design. With the app, you can automatically backup your photos and videos on camera roll, backup your contacts, and watch MKV, WMV, AVI, MP4 videos on your flash drive.
SanDisk iXpand Drive comes in 16GB ($49.99), 32GB ($69.99), 64GB ($89.99) and 128GB ($129.99) capacities. You can buy direct from SanDisk. Currently only 32GB and 128GB options are available at Amazon.
