Apple has really changed things up lately, but there’s one thing we can still say with confidence: Apple will never sell an iPhone with a memory card slot. The company makes far too much money forcing people to buy higher-margin iPhones with more storage to ever give people a better option. Of course, there are still ways to add expandable memory to any iPhone right now, and one of the most nifty options out there is the HOCHE 2-in-1 Memory Card Reader/Lightning Cable. It’s exactly what it sounds like — a Lightning cable with a built-in microSD card slot — and it’s on sale right now on Amazon for just $12.
