The biggest drawback is that iOS devices can not expand storage space, can not be the same as the Android device via microSD card and other ways to save the multi-volume file. But if you want to add additional memory space for your hands or iPhone iPad, you may wish to try this experience called iStick this launch mobile storage devices made by Apple accessory maker Sanho Corporation.
