PhotoFast iType-C is a handy storage extension for your iPhone

Apple really charges a premium for extra gigabytes of storage on the iPhone or iPad, so a lot of people end up opting for the lower storage models and then run out of room quite quickly. There are lots of different cloud services, but external flash drive storage for iOS devices is also growing more popular. The versatile PhotoFast iType-C is a new drive that comes in 64GB, 128GB, or 200GB varieties. It has an app to make organizing your files easy, and it will plug into just about anything.

A physical backup of all of your precious photos or files can be a good idea, and a drive that you can plug in to different devices for transferring them is really handy. You’ll find a Lightning connector at one end of the PhotoFast iType-C and a USB Type-C at the other end, ideal for transferring photos from an iPhone to a new MacBook. There’s also a small attachment that offers a USB 3.0 connector, and if you flip that up you have a Micro USB connector.

The PhotoFast iType-C is tiny, weighing only 17g, so it’s easy to stick in a bag or pocket and carry with you. The well-designed PhotoFast One App that goes along with it let’s you back up music, photos, videos, documents, and contacts. It’s also integrated with cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and iCloud Drive and you can use it back up photo albums from Facebook and Instagram.

Another nice feature of the PhotoFast iType-C is the fact that you can plug it in and snap a shot on your iPhone that will save directly to the drive. Whether you want a backup for safety, extra storage to use for photos, or just a drive to stream movies from, the PhotoFast iType-C has you covered.

It is also Apple MFi-certified and it goes on sale at the end of the month. The prices are not finalized, but you should be able to pick up the 64GB version for around $60, the 128GB version will be around $100, and you’re looking at paying a fair bit more for the 200GB version.
