Run­ning out of room on iPhone?

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE GADGETS/GAMES - — Nick Whigham,

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.
