The native iOS file manager
The arrival of every new version of iOS usually brings to iPhone and iPad different improvements that expand the functions of Apple's operating system for mobile devices. In the case of iOS 11, amongst its main features and updates, we have to point out Files, a native file manager.
Browse and search through your Files and organize them
Thus, this application has become the default iOS file manager, not only allowing us to manage whatever we store on our iPhone or iPad but expanding its functions to other iOS devices with manage through iCloud Drive or those that we store on online storage services on the cloud such Google Drive, Box or Dropbox.
Although nobody should be surprised by the release of a file manager, it has taken 10 years to land on this operating system, the operations of which to manage folders or organize documents had to be carried out by means of third-party apps to the date.
iOS finally has a native file manager to manage its folders.
Now, Files is here to fulfill a function similar to that of Finder on macOS or the Windows Explorer on PCs equipped with Microsoft's operating system. On these computers and thanks to these applications, we can check information sorted into folders and the user can move them from one place to another.
This flexibility, which is usual and normal on other devices, has finally landed on Apple's mobile devices. Therefore, creating folders, copying documents or changing the location of one or several files is now a native function. The reason is to turn iPhones and iPads into devices that integrate better into the workflow that any user can carry out in his daily tasks, both in the professional Files and in domestic and academic environments.
- Requires iOS 11.
