As much as we like the iPhone 7, we must admit that it has a couple of problems. We already talked about its not-so-great life, so today we’re focusing on another issue: storage space. Hold on, don’t judge us yet.
We’re talking about the 32 GB version which is simply not enough for most users who use their phones for taking a lot of pictures and videos. The phone will be out of memory pretty soon.
Therefore, let’s talk a bit about ways of expanding the memory, using some of the best flash drives for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus!
After looking over Amazon, we made a selection of some of the best models of the moment, perfect for every budget. Let’s see what we have here.
1. RAVPower 2 in 1 Memory Stick
What makes this model from RAVPower one of the best flash drives for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is the fact that besides having a storage capacity of 64 GB, expanding the storage possibilities, it also acts as a charging cable.
It comes with its own app, iPlugmate, supporting all major video and music formats, which can be streamed directly from the drive and played on the iPhone.
2. Trusda Flash Drive for iPhone 7
If you’re looking for something as compact as possible, you might as well check this tiny little flash drive for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It directly plugs into your Lightning port and USB port, being able to reach reading speeds of up to 90 MB/s, as well as writing speeds of 40 MB/s, thanks to the USB 3.0 connectivity.
It’s very easy to use, while the cap design, with an integrated loop, makes it easy to attach it to key chains or backpacks. Using the Trusda app, you can easily transfer and manage all your files.
3. HooToo Lightning Flash Drive for iPhone 7
Next in our top comes a very good looking flash drive, with a total capacity of 128 GB. With authentic Apple MFi certification and 100% compatible with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, it also works with most cases on the market.
It’s made of premium aluminum, being very light and compact. You can transfer data at high speeds, while the iPlugmate app supports all major video and music formats, so you can stream direct from the drive on your phone!
4. Devia USB Flash Drive for iPhone 7
With a very interesting form factor, this iPhone 7 flash drive from Devia is Apple MFi certified and has a storage capacity of 32 GB, just enough for all the stuff on your phone.
It connects to your PC through a USB 2.0 port and provides easy and speedy transfers, being also compatible with the iPlugmate app, so you can watch movies or listen to music directly from it. Pretty cool, huh?
5. MassData USB Drive for iPhone 7
At a first look, this tiny little guy looks like a regular USB flash drive, but it actually hides a Lightning port, so you can connect it to your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, in order to transfer files from and on it.
Also, you can play anything that’s on it without transferring to your phone, which is a very big plus! On the other side, the fact that it has just 16 GB might be a minus, but hey, it’s still a great pick!
6. SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive
Finally, the last entry in our top is a drive from SanDisk, with an awesome design and a total storage capacity of 128 GB.
It can automatically back up your photos, videos or contacts and it’s designed with a flexible connector, to fit through most iPhone 7 cases. Also, a very cool thing about it is the ability to save videos automatically on it, if captured from within iXpand Drive app.
7. GMYLE Mini External Storage Stick
MFi certified by Apple, this model comes with various storage capacities, like 16, 32, 64, 128 or even 200 GB, being one of the easiest ways to transfer photos and videos between your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus and PCs, freeing up space in seconds.
It weighs just 7 grams and measures 4.8 cm in length, being very easy to store. Also, thanks to the “One-touch” backup function, you can back up all your contacts, photos and videos from the phone with just one click. You can get it in Rose Gold, Gold and Silver.
As you can see, there are some pretty cool flash drives for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus you can buy right now, but in the end, we must decide upon our favorite model.
