This query came from a client this week, whose 16GB iPad had filled up.
He wanted to know if it is possible to 'plug in' something to add to the storage capacity of the iPad.
The quick answer is that no, there is no way to extend the internal storage capacity of the iPad (or iPhone). You are stuck with the storage capacity that you purchased, so it is very important to ensure you purchase adequate storage right from the start.
It is therefore very important to know how to manage the storage of your device - how to remove the apps and content that you don't really need. Below is a link to a handy hint in the iTandCoffee club's Handy Hint Library (for members of The iTandCoffee Club).
Having said that there is no way to expand the internal storage of the iPad and iPhone, I should mention that there IS a way of using an external device to 'offload' some of your device's photos and videos.
It can also offer a great solution accessing movies, photos and other files without having to store them permanently on you iPad or iPhone. When you are on holidays, it offers a way of backing up your photos from your iDevice.
The device is call an iXpand Flash drive, by SanDisk. I have one of these myself, and love it.
It can plug into the USB port of a computer, or the lightning connection on the iPad or iPhone.
I love it so much and have had so much interest in it from the various clients that I have shown, that we have purchased a batch of these devices.
We have them for sale at the shop for $75. The price for iTandCoffee Club members is discounted to $70.
If you are interested in purchasing one, email email@example.com or call 1300 885 420.
Managing the storage on your Mac can be a real challenge, especially for those of us who have MacBooks with only 128 or 256GB storage - or on a family Mac that several people use.
When you check out the storage availability on your Mac, and try to work out just what it is that is using up all your space, you may find that a large amount of space is dedicated to 'Other'.
What is taking up this 'Other' space? And how do you find all those 'storage hogs' on your Mac?
Find out in this week's Handy Hint for Mac just how you can easily you can determine what is taking up all the space on your Mac, including discovering what 'Other' contains.
Then you'll be able to do a big cleanup on the basis of this information! I managed to regain over 30GB of space on my Macbook Air in just a few minutes, dramatically improving its performance (since it was previously down to around 1GB of free storage).
