How to Use Your iPhone As a USB Flash Drive?

Did you know that you can use your iPhone as a Flash Drive? There is a hack that allows you to turn your iPhone into a flash drive. Read on to know more.

This is a no-brainer. Since Apple doesn’t bring you any file-management goody to your iPhone and since you can’t just use the iPhone like you would use any other smartphone (notably, Android), it is virtually impossible to convert an iPhone into a flash drive.

  • You can use an app to store upload/store/edit files on the iPhone
  • You cannot access the file system without breaking into the phone (via jailbreak/SSH)
  • You cannot create “drives” per se without resorting to jailbreak apps
  • You can make use of the space as a pseudo-drive
