I am one among countless others who made the big mistake of getting myself a 64GB iPhone—and now, I have the solution to my storage woes in form of a sleek USB stick. (Though, to be fair, it’s quite simplistic to be calling this thing a USB stick because it’s most definitely more than that.)
This tiny device is the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Luxe. Even though it’s small, it has a metal body so it doesn’t feel fragile at all. This sleek gadget looks like your typical USB complete except it’s not. It has a loop you can hang on and a cover for port protection.
For one, it reps a lightning port AND it also has a USB-C port in a dandy swivel mechanism.
All this means is that you can now use the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Luxe to transfer files between your iPhone and your laptop, iPad or any other USB-C devices.
But, the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Luxe takes it one step further. Once plugged into your iPhone with the SanDisk iXpand app, you can back up your iPhone right then and there—no need for pesky cables or even a PC to plug into. You can back up all your photos and videos, even your contacts, calendar!
Such an amazingly simple and uncomplicated solution to your storage woes. You can even set it to automatically back up your phone. And at the same time, you can password-protect your files across your devices. Imagine that?
The SanDisk iXpand flash drive comes in a 64GB capacity (the one I tried out, easily doubling my phone storage), and there’s also a 128GB and a 256GB version.
