Flash storage solutions provider SanDisk has revitalised iXpand Flash Drive for iPhone and iPad with a new, modern design and a lightning connecter, plus encryption software that password-protects files.
The new model has a USB 3.0 lconnector for faster transfer speeds to Mac or PCs, and a completely redesigned app to easily manage photos, videos and music.
The flash drive device designed to help people quickly and easily free up space on their iPhone and iPad with up to 128GB of additional capacity.
“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,” Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product marketing, SanDisk, said in a statement.
“Our line of mobile storage offerings can immediately help them free up space. 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.”
The iXpand Flash Drive allows users to automatically back up their camera roll and contacts, and watch popular video formats straight from the drive. The new drive also includes encryption software that password-protects files, allowing people to share their content while keeping sensitive files secure across devices.
Giving users the option to save space instantly, the app now has a camera function so users can shoot and save photos or videos directly to the drive instead of on their iPhone or iPad.
The app also allows users to automatically back up content from popular social networking sites, as well as play back music within the app.
Built for the next-generation iXpand Flash Drive, the iXpand Drive app is available for download from the App Store for iPhone and iPad.
