The drawback to iOS devices is that they don’t allow for memory expansion, unlike other devices which allows users to add memory to their devices via microSD and so on. However if you were hankering for a way to add extra memory to your iPhone or iPad, perhaps the iStick might be a device worth checking out.

The iSticker is created by Hyper and it’s essentially a flash drive designed for iOS devices in mind. It’s not as compact or elegant compared to a microSD card, but we reckon it should be able to get the job done. The device will feature a Lightning connector that will connect to your iPhone or iPad, and a USB connector on the other end that will hook up to your computer.

The device will basically allow users to store media files, such as photos, videos, and etc. and will come in a variety of different sizes, ranging from 8GB up to 64GB, which coincidentally enough is the same amount of storage options available on iPhones. The iStick will also support a range of media formats in order to allow iOS users to stream music and videos to their devices.

Now the bad news is that the iStick is currently a Kickstarter project, meaning that you might be in for a wait if you were thinking about ordering it. The project has since surpassed its goal of $100,000, but if you’d like to learn more or place an order of your head, hit up its Kickstarter page for the details.
