Now that with many new features added to the iPhone 12 line, such as the tough Ceramic Shield, the aerospace-grade aluminum edges, the 5G speed, and the Super Retina XDR OLED display. Some people want to know whether Apple adopts the other technologies that fans have long waited for. For example, does iPhone 12 series have micro SD card slot?
Sadly, there’s still no micro SD support on either of these four new phones. The iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 mini both have 64, 128, and 256GB of internal storage options, while the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone Pro Max are a little bit higher –with a 128GB base storage and 256GB or 512GB external memory if you need more. Actually, in order to expand the internal flash memory, you don’t have to pay another $100 to upgrade your iPhone. It is quite possible to add external storage just via a micro SD adapter.
External iPhone Storage via the Lightning port
You can add an external storage drive to your iPhone models via the Lightning port as long as it is an iPhone 5 or later model. We recommend you to use the SanDisk iXpand Drive, which has a traditional USB 3.0 port and a Lightning port so that they can connect your iPhone and the desktop or notebook computer equipped with USB ports. Note that the SanDisk drive has already had 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB on board, which is easy-to-use and more likely to be trouble-free than any adapter. Besides, the drive would only support storage for videos and photos from your cameras and contacts.
Of course, if you just want to have an adapter, SmartQ’s C368 USB-3.0 Multi-Card Reader would be better. It supports most standard memory cards including SD, micro SD, and CF. The price is only $12.99.
Wireless External iPhone Storage
In addition to micro SD adapter, there are also a lot of hard drives and SSDs that enables you to connect it to your iPhone wirelessly. The best of them are SanDisk Wireless Stick and RavPower Wireless FileHub. The drive stick is very portable and can support up to 3 devices at the same time. But if the price is more important for you, you would prefer the Wireless FileHub.
