  • Automatically syncs photos and videos from camera roll when connected.

  • Transfer photos and videos from the camera roll to the drive to free up iPhone/iPad memory.

  • Watch popular-format movies directly from the drive.

  • Encrypts files across iPhone, iPad, and computers for secure transfer.

It works with:

  • iPhone 5

  • iPhone 5C

  • iPhone 5S

  • iPhone 6

  • iPhone 6 Plus

  • iPad Air

  • iPad mini

  • iPad with Retina display and newer (iOS 7.1+)

  • Windows vista®

  • Windows 7

  • Windows 8

  • Mac OS X v10.6+

You first have to install the app

When you’ve connected the drive to your iPhone or iPad, you’ll be prompted to install the companion iXpand Sync app.

Camera Roll Sync

You can back up your camera roll to the iXpand Flash Drive by setting up auto-sync or manually syncing as needed.
