We can’t see the future, but there’s one thing we can guarantee: there will never come a time when iPhones will have microSD card slots. Not. Ever. Apple makes a ton of money by forcing its customers to buy more expensive iPhones if they want extra storage, and there’s no way the company will ever leave all that money on the table by supporting expandable memory. There is a way to use memory cards with any iPhone or iPad though, and it’s actually much easier than you might have thought. Just pick up a Fixget 3-In-1 Lightning Memory Card Reader and pop it into the Lightning port on your iOS device. That’s it! Now you can just use the free companion app to offload all your big photo and video files to a microSD card or even a full size SD card.Price: Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
