Chapter in this post:
Since no SD card can be used for storage expansion in the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch from Apple, you have to do something different. On the one hand, you can have your pictures and videos swap out via AirDrop on the Mac, on the other hand, equip wireless hard drives via radio. However, it works entirely without WiFi, Bluetooth and the like SanDisk iXpand Go. This is a USB stick that you can not only use via USB-A on Mac and PC, but can also be used on mobile Apple devices via the also built-in Lightning connector. Here you can find out more about the SanDisk iXpand Go with up to 256 GB of storage.
With the external iPhone memory, you can also take a lot of photos and videos with inexpensive smartphone models from Apple that have little internal memory. So you have more space on the device for apps, music and the like. The SanDisk iXpand Go USB stick can be attached to a key ring or elsewhere and, in addition to the Lightning connector, also comes with a USB-A connector with USB 3.0. On the Product page The version with 128 GB of storage is currently available for EUR 44,99 and the 256 GB version for EUR 81,99. For a corresponding surcharge, they are also available on the linked page with a USB-C adapter so that they can be used on the corresponding ports of Mac or PC.
In addition to the above USB sticks, the storage media manufacturer SanDisk also offers memory expansions for the iPhone in a different design. The iXpand USB flash drive with a loop design is designed to rest against the back of the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch when in use. It doesn't take up much space and doesn't stick out too much from the bottom of the device. Currently are on the corresponding Product page the versions with 32GB storage for 27,99 EUR and with 64GB storage for 32,99 EUR. Why I would or always prefer the products from SanDisk to those from other manufacturers, I explain here: Buying an SD card - you should pay attention to these points!
