One of the biggest differences in iPhone and Android is that iPhone users are unable to extend their storage by using SD cards. Basically, it’s an added security feature which ensures that there is no malware attacking your Apple device, however, you can still add the feature to your device if you seriously want an added storage for just $25.
Lexar’s Card Reader
First up we have Lexar’s tiny microSD reader as an option for Lightning devices. With the free Lexar Mobile Manager app, it allows you to move your date including videos and images to an external storage device. This app is supported for both iPhone and iPad. If you feel like making a backup or transferring your images and videos to PC else wise, you can use the card reader.
The second good method for that is using the Valkit 2-in-1 Lighting cable. This is also a workaround that helps you connect your iPhone or iPad too with a microSD card. The Valkit 2-in-1 is basically a 10-inch Lightning cable with a microSD card slot built into it. With Valkit 2-in-1 attached, you can connect an SD card with a limit of up to 256 gigabytes. If you are thinking about the estimated cost, a 256-gigabyte microSD card costs around $170, while an iPhone 7 with 256-gigabytes of storage costs $849. The cable will costs you around $25. Now you’ll be getting jealous with Android users. Aren’t you?
