Apple doesn't include this storage option on their devices because they make money off their users by selling storage options. Originally Answered: Why does not Apple provide a memory card slot in iPhone? Micro SD Cards tend to slow down phones. SD card storage is generally slower than Nand flash storage.
Accordingly, does the iPhone 6 have an SD card slot?
No. iPhones have never had a slot and probably never will even tho they are still making 16GB versions. The iPhone doesn't have an internal SD card slot, though, you can use the SD card reader that plugs into the lightning port.
Also, what is the slot on the side of my iPhone?
Every iPhone has a SIM card slot on its right side. That slot houses a tray that holds your iPhone's SIM card. That SIM card lets your phone connect to your carrier so that you can make and get mobile data. You might never need to access your SIM card if you bought your iPhone with one pre-installed from the carrier.
How often do SD cards go bad?
The Short Answer. While most memory cards can last for 5 years or more, there is some evidence suggesting that memory cards may be more reliable sometime after a few weeks of use and before 2 years of use.
Can I add memory to my iPhone?
Unfortunately, the iPhone doesn't have expandable storage like some other smartphones. But there are ways to expand your iPhone's storage without breaking the bank or deleting everything. 1) Plug in a flash drive. Even though you can't expand your iPhone's internal storage, you can grow its external storage.
