Upgrade your phone by upgrading your case.
Would you like to protect your iPhone and simultaneously expand its storage capacity by up to 128GB? Well, you can now thanks to SanDisk’s new iXpand Memory Case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. The new line of cases ensures durable protection and aims to give users expanded storage capabilities without needing to upgrade their iPhone model.
SanDisk first introduced Lightning to USB Flash Drives for the iPhone back in 2014 and completely redesigned the accessories earlier this year. The new design was a significant improvement, but it seems the company was still in search of a perfect solution for everyone in need of additional storage.
Now, SanDisk is launching a new product that essentially offers the same functionality – extra storage for files, but in the form factor of an iPhone 6/6s case. To take advantage of all the extra space, you’ll need to use the SanDisk iXpand Case App, which will automatically organise all of your content. Through the app, the case can also be set to automatically back up your phone’s Camera Roll, and has options for protecting everything stored on it through encryption.
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 battery has no specified release date, but it can be pre-ordered for $39.99.
The memory case is only compatible with the iPhone 6 and 6S and is available with 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB of extra storage for $59, $99, and $129, respectively. Each case is available in four different colour variations: blue, grey, red and teal.
