How to Use iPhone as Hard Drive & Enable iPhone Disk Mode?

Last Updated : Mar 14, 2019 | Written by Jason

How do I use my iPhone as a USB flash drive without iTunes? Let me guess - you must be messing around with your USB flash drives and cannot find a single one of them when you are in a desperate need!

For most Android users, this won't be a problem as they can always spare out more internal storage space to store files as large as 3GB, and use the smart phone as a USB hard drive. But for iPhone device holders, Apple has made things difficult. The lack of file-management tidbit has made stale the whole journey.

Interesting enough, there is actually a mind-blowing simple way to turn your iPhone into a portable storage device, free.
