AWT News Update: June 20, 2016

We start off the week with a couple of good rumors and a nice free ice-cold drink:

  • One new rumor still shows the 3.5 mm headphone jack and dual SIM cards for the iPhone 7 
  • MyCokeRewards comes to Apple Wallet and Apple Pay
  • It looks as if the 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro is on the verge of bing removed from stores. 
  • Sweden’s Spotify reported that it now has twice the number of paying customers that Apple Pay does

That’s where SanDisk’s Dual USB Drive comes to the rescue. It’s the first Dual Flash Drive to include one reversible USB Type-C connector and one USB 3.0 connector. This makes it easy totransfer content to and from a MacBook and other Macs and PCs.

SanDisk made the Dual USB Drive fairly rugged. For example, a plastic protector swivels to cover whichever end of the flash drive isn’t in use. This locks into place over either the USB 3.0 or USB-C end to cover the opposite connector.

The SanDisk Dual USB Drive works with Macs running OS X 10.6 and higher. No drivers are required, so it’s plug and play ready.

There are two downsides to the Dual USB Drive. One: it only offers 32GB of storage. And it’s a bit pricey at $64.99 (though it does come with a two-year limited warranty). However, I find that’s a price worth paying for the ease of swapping files between the MacBook and my iMac.
