How to Use iPhone as Flash Drive

June 5, 2013 / Posted by Webber on Supported Devices

Like many iPhone users, I always wondering what I can do with the 32GB storage space of my iPhone 5. Even after installing many apps, I still have a lot of space left. Although I have a lot of photos and songs in my iPhone, I would like only to keep my favorites and transfer others to computer, so I do want to make use of the storage space in my iPhone.

Once attending in a class, I found out what the iPhone storage space could be used for. I can use iPhone as USB drive and put the PowerPoint files I want in my iPhone and then watch it. Why do I want to use iPhone as flash drive instead of the portable hard disk? Because I’m not that careful guy and I always forget to take the USB drive with me, so every time when I’m not able to have the professors’ PowerPoint lectures, I would get rather upset. Using iPhone as USB drive is absolutely a good solution for me.

But how to use iPhone as flash drive? As Apple doesn’t bring any goody to iPhone files’ management, it’s impossible for me to convert iPhone into a flash drive directly. So I should rely on the third party software. I believe that Leawo iTransfer is the best software on this issue. It is multifunctional, not only can it transfer files among iOS devices, iTunes and PCs, but also make your iOS devices as flash drives and store any file you want without synchronization of iTunes. With this software, I finally make full use of my iPhone. Now I would love to show you how to use iPhone as flash drive.
