Western Digital, the firm better known for its external storage drives, has launched its first ever 2-in-1 flash drive that makes it easier to move content between iPhones and USB Type-C devices. Called SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Luxe, it has both Lightning and USB Type-C connectors inside a metal casing and can let you move content from iPhone to iPads, Mac and Type-C supporting Android devices as well. As mentioned by the firm, once files are on the drive, they can be transferred using USB 3.0 connector to a USB Type-C-compatible device.
It is also possible to keep the content safe by making them password protected by using the iXpand Drive app. The same app can also be used to free up space on an iPhone or to automatically back up photos, videos, documents and contacts.
You can get the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Luxe in three storage models – 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, at ₹4,449, ₹5,919 and ₹8,999 respectively. It is available from Amazon India.
“With pervasive internet penetration and smartphone & smart gadget adoption, the average new-age Indian uses more than one device. They should be able to transfer and view their content on different devices from an iPhone in a convenient and seamless manner. We are excited to introduce SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Luxe that offers a one-stop solution to make data more accessible across gadgets, so consumers can stop worrying about connectivity or lack of storage space, and live their digital lives to the fullest,” said Khalid Wani, Sales Director, India, Western Digital.
