Brett’s iTip: Access files from a USB hard drive or thumbdrive on your iPad or iPhone. It’s so easy to do with the Files app, but there are several caveats. First, the USB external drive needs to be formatted in a file system that iOS can recognize, which most modern USB hard drives are these days.  Second, this works best with a USB 3.0 drive. Third, so many of our USB hard drives and thumbdrives are USB-A so you’ll need an adaptor to plug it into your iPhone/iPad. If you have a Lightning iOS device, you can use Apple’s “Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter.” If you have a USB-C iPad, you’ll need a USB-A to USB-C adapter or today you might be able to find external drives that can connect directly to the USB-C port. You can also use USB-C hubs.
