Can I use a flash drive to increase memory on a iPad Pro

I was told that flash drives are available (Scandisk) with a lightning connector which can be used to increase the memory on iPads and iPhones. Is this the case? Or is it that you can access videos and photographs stored on it by another device. From what I’m reading contributors are saying this just isn’t possible and you can only increase memory by upgrading to a larger model. What about iCloud? I have 200Gb available. Is there a way to move files, photos, videos to the cloud and access them when needed without using up the iPad memory? I’m asking for my sons who will be starting their A levels soon and are concerned that they won’t have enough space on their 64Gb iPad Pro.

    No you can’t use a flash drive to increase memory on any idevices. Yes you can move files, photos for sure and videos l believe, they fall under the photo bracket. You can move mail and contacts also. If you store stuff on safari for reading later that can/will also be stored on iCloud. Games and apps can’t be stored on iCloud, however you can store some apps on iCloud, only Apple created apps, as in their own apps. I use an iPad Air 2 at present which runs the same software iOS (11) as the iPad Pro so it works the same in regards to the iCloud storage. Hope that helped! :)
