The iStick is the world’s first flash drive with an Apple lightning connector

The Internet is becoming a larger part of our lives with every passing day. We upload all sorts of information on our phones, tablets, and laptops, but often find ourselves needing to transfer data from one platform to another. Most of the time it’s something small that we can move with a flash drive or through email, but that’s not always the case.

If you have relatively large files, or too many to move easily, you’re going to want a way to move massive amounts of information as quickly as possible. If you are an Apple lover, then the iStick could be a safer way to get the job done. Using cloud services or just moving things about online makes them a bit more open to hackers. If you want to keep your info just to yourself, the iStick can do just that as it is a high-capacity flash drive that has an Apple lightning connector.

You can stream movies without Internet or a wireless network, and this can support all sorts of non-iOS video formats. This is Apple Mfi certified, and will let you move music from your computer to an iPod touch or playback right off of the iStick, which means no syncing required! This will also let you back up all of your photos, videos, and contacts. You can choose anywhere from an 8GB to a 128GB iStick, and the price will range from $79-300 depending on what you choose.
