Western Digital has announced its first flash drive with dual Lightning and USB Type-C connectors: the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Luxe.
With both Lightning and USB Type-C connectors and an all-metal casing, the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Luxe provides a tool for users to access and move files between iPhone, iPad Pro, Mac and other USB Type-C devices, including Android phones.
The new flash drive comes with two connectors. Once files are on the drive, they can be transferred using the USB 3.0 connector to a USB Type-C-compatible computer. Consumers who want a heightened sense of privacy can password-protect their files and photos with the iXpand Drive app. The app can also be used to free up space on an iPhone or to automatically back up photos, videos, documents and contacts.
The SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive Luxe is backed by a 2-year limited warranty and is available now at the Western Digital Store, Amazon and other select retailers. It’s available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB versions with manufacturer’s suggested retail prices of US$44.99, $59.99, and $89.99, respectively.
