The iXpand Flash Drive, which comes in 16GB to 128GB capacities, allows iPhone users quickly and easily  free up space on their iPhone and Ipad. It now features a new design (made of durable metal and rubber) that fits most cases and tucks neatly under the phone with minimal extruding. Its lighting connector is very visible and the slim and no cap profile do not block other PC USB ports.


Other key features of the iXpand include the automatic file back up from the iPhone when connected, photo back up from your social media accounts, playback of music or video right from the SanDisk application, saving of photo directly to iXpand after taking the photo, auto manage of content, and a nice UI with graphical image of the storage.

According to a consumer survey conducted by SanDisk in the US, many iPhone users are looking to free up more space on their phones due to the limited storage of the device. “People are using their mobile phones to capture tons of photos and videos and more than 70 percent of users transfer files off of their iPhones to another storage location,” said Peter Mah, regional director for Asia Pacific, SanDisk.

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