ADAM elements will be present at this year’s CES in Las Vegas and showcase a new member of its highly successful and multi-awarded storage extension family for Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices – the iKlips II. Connected to any of these via the Lightning interface, users can easily free up space on their mobile devices and use the iKlips app, now updated to version 4, for a multitude of other tasks.
Extra storage for iOS devices
The Apple MFI-certified (made for iPhone/iPad/iPod) iKlips II comes with both a Lightning and a USB 3.1 connector, so data exchange between iOS devices and a macOS or Windows computer is a breeze. Available with capacities of 32, 64 and 128 GB, these stylish flash drives support the exFAT file system, so there is no limit to the size of individual files. The iKlips II comes with a 3-year warranty. It will be available in the colours grey or red from mid-January 2018. Prices (MSRP) are as follow: £50 for the 32 GB, £70 for the 64 GB and £90 for the 128 GB version.
iKlips iOS app now in version 4
The iKlips 4 app with its redesigned user interface is not just for file management, sharing and backup but it turns the iKlips into a multimedia recording and playback device: record and playback photos and 4K movies directly to/from its external storage. It also supports Touch ID, so even in case the iKlips gets lost, personal data are safe. The new app is compatible with the latest iPhone 8 and X. Under iOS 11, it works perfectly with the new File app to collect all files in one place for the users’ browsing, searching and organising convenience. However, it is also compatible with all devices running iOS 8 and up, and it can be used with all members of the iKlips product family.
