Since the iOS handheld device has limited internal capacity, users need an additional storage solution without internet access. The goal is to develop a portable dual interface flash drive for users to expand storage, transfer, share and manage files between several devices, such as iPhone, Macs and PCs.
There are various design of flash drive in the market. It is challenging to design an attractive and functional flash drive to stand out in the crowded market. Through the design methodology, we find out the breakthrough in technique and design.
