Are you tired of running out of space on your iPhone or iPad? With Evermusic, you can effortlessly listen to your music directly from a SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive and free up precious storage space for photos and other essential apps. Imagine saving up to 256 GB of space on your iPhone! The iXpand Flash Drive is a compact device with a lightning connector on one end and a standard USB connector on the other. You can easily transfer files between your home computer and iPhone.

Currently, the app supports SanDisk Flash Drives with protocols iXpand V1, iXpand V2, iXpand V3, iXpand V6, iXpand V7. You can check if your iXpand Flash Drive is supported using the following steps:

  • Connect the drive to the iOS device

  • Open Settings

  • Tap General

  • Tap About

  • Look for iXpand Flash Drive

  • Tap Find App for Accessory

  • The Evermusicc app should be listed there

If your device is not supported the only solution we can advise now is to use an old iXpand Drive device, for example iXpand Mini Flash Drive or use Apple adapter and connect iXpand flash drive using that adapter like a normal USB drive.

If you have supported device:

Connect iXpand Flash Drive: Plug the iXpand Flash Drive into your iPhone or iPad's lightning port. Then, open the Evermusic app.

Navigate to 'Connections' Tab: In Evermusic, head to the 'Connections' tab. You'll notice the attached flash drive at the top of the screen in the 'Connected accessories' section.
