With iOS 11 Apple has introduced a new stock app called Files. The Files app as its name suggests is a special app that is designed to bring all of user’s files at one place. It integrates with different online storage services, Apple’s iCloud Drive and device’s own storage to find files stored in them. Once it has found the files it lists them in a single place, so users can find and interact with them with ease on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Files app will make organizing files on an iOS device a lot easier. It will allow users to browse and search files in one place, and even use macOS like color coded tags to classify files. At launch with iOS 11 many third-party storage services like Box, Dropbox and OneDrive will feature support for the the Files app. Users will be able to drag and drop files on the iPad to move them into folders and tag them. In the Recents and Favorites sections Files will display items that user recently used or has added in his or her favorites list.
Files is the perfect way to manage files on the iPhone and iPad, especially for those users who have accounts on different storage services and want to manage them from one place.
Files app replaces the iCloud Drive app and is going to come pre-loaded with every iOS 11 installation, it is also part of the iOS 11 beta. The app is deletable, so it will be available in the App Store for those who want to install it again.
