SanDisk recently announced a new line of cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, aiming to give users expanded storage capabilities without needing to upgrade their iPhone model. Called the iXpand Memory Case and available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, SanDisk's new cases ensure durable protection for Apple's smartphone while adding to the iPhone's base storage capacity via the Lightning port.

Working in conjunction with the free iXpand Memory Case app [Direct Link], users can set their camera roll to automatically back up to the accessory's storage in order to avoid running into a situation where an excess of photos and videos prevents them from capturing any more media content. The app also password protects any content saved within the Memory Case, and can be migrated to and from SanDisk's SecureAccess desktop software for Windows and Mac.

The iXpand Case App is the companion to your iXpand Case allowing you to access and manage your content stored on your case. Get quick access to view your photos and play your, videos, music and access other files, with easy sorting options. The app automatically organizes and arranges all the content into photos, videos, music – so that you do not have to worry about it.

Easily save videos and photos, play videos and music directly from the memory case, create playlists of your favorite music, and manage the optional add-on battery pack. You can even setup automatic transfer of all your photos and videos directly to the case.

The iXpand Memory Case is also functionally expandable with the 1900mAh battery pack accessory, which the company says can double the life of an iPhone. The pack is automatic and doesn't require any separate manual start since it can "detect when your phone’s battery runs low, and kicks in to charge it."


SanDisk has begun selling the iXpand Memory Case on Amazon in its three different memory configurations: 32GB ($59.99), 64GB ($99.99), and 128GB ($129.99). Each case for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s is also available in Blue, Grey, Red, and Teal. The battery pack accessory has no specified release date, but anyone interested can pre-order today for $39.99.

128 GB of useless storage.

It doesn't augment the built-in storage in any way, so it is just a hassle and another thing to manually manage that no Apps can take advantage of.

Not sure why people always get so hyped up about memory cards and external storage. They do literally nothing for you.

You're much better off buying a phone with enough storage for your needs, and utilizing the cloud infrastructure for offloading content.

I want more battery and an extra 128gb of storage, but I think upgrading from the 128gb iPhone 6s to the 256gb iPhone 7 plus will solve that.

You know what I really want? More iCloud Storage. Sure, I could upgrade my 200GB to 1TB, going from $2.99/mo to $9.99/mo. But what happened to that $4.99/mo 500GB option?
This reminds me of DropBox pricing.

You get 2GB for free... but the only other plan is $100 a year for 1TB

I need more than 2GB... but I certainly don't need 1TB !!! :eek:

It ALWAYS sucks when you travel, that's why I won't ever use iCloud.
Apple just needs to enable using iCloud over cellular.

I have a 20GB data plan, with rollover. I don't have to worry about data caps. Why the heck isn't there a button I can push to sync my photos to iCloud Photo Library over cellular? Or back up my phone? I can understand not making it automatic because that could use a lot of data. But a simple button that says "Sync iCloud Photo Library (342MB cellular data will be used)" would be amazing.

I wish Apple would open up an API for new/transparent/secure storage mount. (basically like android's micro sd slot) That way products like this could interact seamlessly w/o the need for the included app.

Probably won't happen though. Onboard storage is being kept to a reasonable minimum because everything's headed to the (i)Cloud.
