microSD cards be damned: you can’t insert them into iPhones or iPads. However, SanDisk, which makes those cards, also makes flash drives with the Lightning connector.
It has a write-lock switch and a flexible cable with the connector magnetically tucking in on itself for compact carriage. A full USB-A connector is at the other end. All of this interfacing with USB 3.0 speeds.
SanDisk calls them iXpand flash drives and they’re on Amazon right now on a huge discount.
