Okay, for real… why on Earth is this not a feature in every single iPhone charging cable on the planet?!? Apple makes a killing on its iPhones by not including expandable storage. This way, users have no choice but to spend more money on higher-margin iPhone models if they want more space to store photos, videos and music. There’s another option out there, however: you can buy an iPhone flash drive or a microSD card reader. But instead of having yet another thing to carry around, kill two birds with one stone and pick up a GHB USB Memory Card Reader/Lightning Cable. This brilliant cable hides a microSD card slot in the USB end of the plug, and it’s just $18.99 on Amazon.
