Running out of room on iPhone?
APPLE’S latest range of iPhones has really stepped up the amount of storage capacity on its devices, offering welcome relief to users.
But if you’re still battling away with a 16GB iPhone 6, or perhaps a 32GB iPhone 7, you’ll know the frustration of opening up the camera app to be told your device is too full to be able to take a photo.
There are a bunch of external microSD devices which cater to storage-hungry iPhone users. If you want to offload photos and videos or carry around a large library of music and movies for your iOS device, card readers that plug into your iPhone’s lightning port might be the way to go.
For instance, the Leef iAccess microSD reader for iOS costs about $A65 online and is marketed as “the easiest way to infinite memory”.
But if you don’t want something awkwardly sticking out of your iPhone, you might want to consider a wireless media hub, which relies on a Wi-Fi connection to provide essentially the same thing.
For example, the 1TB Western Digital MyPassport Wireless can be found online for a bit over $220. It’s not the cheapest solution but less expensive than buying a new iPhone. Apple also sells portable drives which act as a conventional hard drive with a Mac or PC and have built-in Wi-Fi so you can transfer files to or from an iPhone or iPad.
