iStick becomes the first Lightning flash drive

The online fund-raising platform Kickstarter has successfully raised enough money for a new and innovative product to come to reality. This mysterious product is called iStick and when released will be the first flash drive with Lightning support. This will make it possible to use it with mobile Apple devices and more.

The iStick is made of anodized aluminum or plastic. It measures 51.6 x 28.6 x 9.1 mm and weighs 10 grams. The aluminum version of the flash drive is available in silver, dark gray and golden colors, while the plastic version is available in black and white.

The device supports USB 2.0 and the Apple Lightning interface and thus it allows users to quickly and easily exchange data between Apple computers and Apple mobile devices. There are five versions of the iStick with capacities of 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB. When working with a computer the flash drive reaches 7.5 MB/sec of write speed and 12 MB/sec of read speed. When used with iOS-based devices the iStick reaches 1.9 MB/sec of write speed and 2.5 MB/sec of read speed. The new device supports iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPod touch 5G and iPad mini first and second generations.

The iStick will be officially available on the market in August of this year. The cheapest 8 GB version will sell for USD 129 and shipping around the world will cost USD 10.
