iStick- a Hyper-exclusive USB stick for your iDevice

Unlike windows phones and android devices, transferring files to and from an iOS device is a bit tricky. There's no way you can directly transfer your files via bluetooth nor use your iOS as a mass storage device like any other platforms do.

If you are to transfer files from your iOS device, you need to plug it into your computer and transfer files via iTunes. That is a little complicated right?

To minimize the complicated steps of transferring files in iOS, there is now an amazing invention which will make a file transfer to be a straightforward process. It is called iStick.

What is iStick?


  1. iStick is a USB-drive with an integrated Apple Lightning connector which makes it compatible with more
    recent iPhone, iPad and iPod generations. On a Mac or PC it just works like any USB-stick and you can copy and move data to and from the iStick via drag-and drop or copy-and-paste.


What does Hyper, the maker of iStick say about this product:

"We’ve reviewed some of its MacBook batteries and iPhone accessories in the past—is today announcing the first Made-For-iPhone/iPad/iPod touch (MFi) flash drive that includes a built-in Lightning connector. Unfortunately you can’t get your hands on one just yet,
but you can preorder through a funding campaign the company just launched on Kickstarter."

Hyper plans to start shipping iStick in August. The creators successfully raised the required funds through crowdfunding via Kickstarter.com-the world's largets funding platform for creative projects.
