Wouldn't it be cool to be able to pop an SD Card into your iPhone and get more storage? I'm amazed how many people would like to expand storage with more than enough songs, videos, games, photos, documents and other data on their iPhone/iPad/iPod. Actually, it's not so simple.

I include several frequently-asked questions our readers list about iOS Device SD card and provide the answers. Hope they can help you.

1. Why do you need a SD card for more storage?

2. Does iPhone/iPad/iPod have a SD card slot?

On the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, you won't find an SD card slot or USB port to connect more storage, as are found on many Android and Windows-based devices.

3. Is there any way to use SD card without SD card slot?

Yes, there are wireless card readers (also known as media hubs), which connect via Wi-Fi to your iDevice. So instead of popping a microSD card inside your iPhone, iPad or iPod, you pop one into an external drive you can keep stowed in a bag, pocket, or wherever. I recommend Iogear MediaShair Hub, RAVPower FileHub 5-in-1, Patriot Aero, etc.

4. Why is a SD card necessary?

5. How to add more storage to iPhone/iPad/iPod?

6. What disadvantages might iOS Device SD Card bring?

Consider adding a SD card for your iPhone/iPad/iPod if you care about the performance. According to a study carried out by Hyojun Kim at the Georgia Institute of technology, using a microSD card in your phone can cause it to become sluggish, with even basic tasks like web browsing suffering as a result. Overall performance can often drop by between 100% and 300% and in one case the study found that there was an incredible 2000% decrease in performance.
