No you can't.

Let me gaze into my crystal ball. . . . I see phones with no memory card slots. I see laptops without ports. I believe I see a pattern for the future?

I remember a year or two ago when someone was clamoring on about how they "guaranteed" the iPhone would eventually have expandable memory like this...and now the competition got rid of it. Go figure...

Re: can you insert a memory card into an iphone 6?

Got a 128G iphone so that i wouldn't have to deal with memory cards. Increased my iCloud storage so that I could keep my movies in the cloud.
I'm still at 66G free on my phone.
By the time I reach 100G used on my phone there will be 256G memory available on my iPhone.
Nope.....don't need no memory cards no how no way....

You could if you bought a blackberry. They'd even throw in that hot mess of a notification center (bb hub) and a blinky LED.

Expandable memory would be nice though, if for no other reason than the cost savings. Apple charges a premium for their GBs

I wouldn't want to be managing what to put on external card. But on devices with 16 that's exactly what I end up doing. I won't defend Apple for such a big price difference in storage. It is easier to not manage the device storage by not having expandable media however they should either drop the price for more storage or allow it. They have done a great job with 6+ to get by without needing a replaceable battery. They have not made it as friendly to get more storage. For some it's a big stretch to get an iPhone to begin with. The larger storage is just too far out of reach. They are better off IMO by increasing usefulness to all rather then expand margins.

There is no real premium in the larger storage. It's not like a macbook pro vs cheaper model. Flash storage is cheap. So the increase is to expand margins only.

I agree.At $100 for each step up in memory that is a big cost. And that is essentially at most 64gb. A 128gb Class 10 SD Card is far less than that.

I don't know how many posts I've read over the years of SD cards wreaking havoc with other devices. Everything from slowing them down to corrupting and then making the card unreadable.

I would rather have Apple's solution. Have never had an issue with memory or backups.

That's fair enough. I have never had any issues such as that despite having used them for years. I would ask though, don't you feel at all that Apple charges a bit more than is necessary? In fairness, the memory itself doesn't cost anywhere near what they are charging.
