If you have picked up an iPhone 15, then you should give yourself a pat on the back because you have just opened up a world of convenience because of USB-C (thanks EU!). I know. Android users are giggling but don’t mind them. With USB-C, you will not be alienated by your Android friends because it now uses the cable that Android uses, plus you can quickly transfer files, photos included, to external storage by simply plugging a USB flash drive (now, take that iCloud!). It is a convenience that cannot be overstated.
Speaking of USB flash drives, I think this new kid in the USB flash drive block from Orbitkey may be a worthy companion to your new iPhone. The Orbitkey USB-C 64 GB is a super slim, durable USB-C drive that is no larger than a grown person’s thumb. It is designed to fit perfectly into the Key Organizer alongside your keys and other Orbitkey Key Organizer accessories, offering up to 64GB of storage at your disposal when you need it.
The drive leverages USB 3.1 technology that affords up to 10x transfer speeds over the usual 2.0 drive. And because it has a USB-C interface, it can be inserted either way. Did we mention that it looked goddamn sleek too? Like, obviously, right? How else do you think this product made it to this blog?
Anyhoo, if you are sold, you may pick up the Orbitkey USB-C 64 for Key Organizer from orbitkey.com for US$34.90 a pop. But before jumping into it, it is worth noting that may only take advantage of the maximum transfer speed on compatible devices. This means iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max, and laptops or tablets equipped with USB 3.1 and above. So, it is not good news for devices like iPhone 15 and 15 Plus. I know it’s a bummer but if speed is not a concern, the Orbitkey USB-C 64 GB is all good.
