Nov 2, 2023 | Woodstock, IL


Other World Computing® -- the leading end-to-end ecosystem solution provider of computer hardware, accessories, and software for both consumers and professionals – today released OWC Drive Speed, a powerful iOS app to verify transfer speeds between iPhones® and connected external storage.

With the release of the iPhone 15 Pro, Apple changed the game for shooting video on the iPhone, enabling users to expand storage beyond the iPhone to connected external drives. To get the most out of the new possibilities and ensure videographers capture every frame as expected, OWC has created Drive Speed, a new app for iPhone to measure and optimize video transfers between the iPhone and external drives.

Drive Speed verifies video data transfer rates and storage limits of external storage attached to an iPhone. Users can check different recording variables such as format, frame rate, and duration. Drive Speed ensures seamless, efficient file exchanges, fewer dropped frames, and the peace of mind knowing you have the storage capacity needed to capture everything.

“We are always looking to create solutions and tools to eliminate hurdles and hassles that impact getting the job done,” said OWC Founder and CEO Larry O’Connor. “Drive Speed empowers users to make sure their iPhone and external storage are ready to capture every frame.”

Drive Speed also offers recommendations on how to optimize video transfers with pocket-sized storage like the OWC Envoy Elektron portable SSD, versatile OWC Envoy Pro mini thumb drive, and pro-grade OWC cables.

Download OWC Drive Speed for free today on the App store® for iPhone.
