The iXpand Mini Flash Drive is an easy to carry, relatively cheaper solution for Apple iPhone and iPad users, who bought the low-end storage version of these devices. SanDisk iXpand Mini Flash Drive has a Lightning connector on one end, and on other side there’s a USB 3.0 connector. Users can plug the flash drive into their phone and transfer videos, photos etc to the device in order to clear up some space on their iPhone.
Additionally iXpand will also let users copy content from social networking sites including tagged photos from Facebook and Instagram. Users can also load video formats straight from the drive, and then watch them on their iPhone or iPad, but you’ll need to keep the iXpand flash drive plugged in. The iXpand Mini flash drive includes support for .WMV, .AVI, .MKV, .MP4, .MOV video formats, but you won’t be able to stream any DRM-protected content.
The flash drive also comes with support for casting content to television sets via a Chromecast. A user will have to rely on the iXpand app in order to stream content via Google Chromecast.
