Can You Upgrade iPhone Memory?


Question: Can You Upgrade iPhone Memory?
Many other mobile phones allow you to augment their built-in storage to add more music, programs, or data by adding expandable memory in the form of removable storage. Can I buy expandable memory for iPhone?

Sorry to say, but the answer is no. There’s no option for expandable memory for iPhone right now. In order to expand the memory of a mobile phone, a manufacturer generally needs to include a slot for removable storage media like an SD card or MemoryStick. The iPhone has no slot for removable storage.

In theory, it’s possible that a third-party company could create some kind of expandable memory for iPhone by making something that attaches to the dock connector. As far as I know, though, there’s no such product right now.

So, while the iPhone 3G offers a good amount of storage, those of you looking for expandable memory for iPhone will need to be content with what you have now.
