Western Digital announces 256GB versions of the SanDisk iXpand flash drive and Connect Wireless Stick at MWC 2017, providing iDevices users with larger external storage options.

SanDisk storage“As people continue to capture more photos and videos on their iPhones, some eventually want to move them to another storage device or back up their valuable digital content,” the company says. “Our goal is to keep up with these evolving technologies by offering mobile storage solutions that help ensure consumers can capture those perfect moments without having to worry. With these incredible new capacities, we are delivering on that goal by helping users save, share, backup and transfer content without storage limitations.”

The iXpand features a flexible Lightning connector and a USB 3.0 connector, allowing users to quickly and easily move photos and videos from iPhones and iPads to a Mac or PC. A companion iXpand Drive app handles automatic camera roll, social network content and popular video formats straight from the drive, while included encryption software password-protects files.

The app also allows users to cast content from the iXpand to TVs via Chromecast device or Amazon Fire. It launches when the flash drive is plugged into the iDevice for easy access to content and file management.

Meanwhile the Connect Wireless Stick pairs with iDevices via wifi, and allows users to store and stream "a massive amount of content" when paired with the companion Connect app. Wifi connections are password protected, and the stick can stream music, videos or HD movies to up to 3 devices, including Apple TVs via AirPlay, simultaneously.

The 256GB iXpand flash drive and Connect Wireless Stick are available now.
