Fragmented cloud services, files and photos everywhere. Take the chaos out and centralize everything through the built-in Files app in iOS.
Since the emergence of a dedicated file app to iOS and iPadOS, Apple has made it a lot easier for us to manage documents on our iPhone and iPad. Just like on your Mac, you have an almost full-fledged alternative to the Finder in your pocket. From the Files app you can link all your cloud services and centralize all your documents in one place. How do you work now?
With iOS files you get all your documents under one roof.
Step 1: Link cloud services
The more cloud services you use, the more annoying it becomes to centralize all your files. The Files app on iOS and iPadOS completely solves that problem. For example, I use 5 cloud services, all for different purposes. Therefore, install all applications from your cloud services and sign up. Go to the files app and iOS will be under the tab leaves already propose to use those cloud services (such as e.g. Google Drive, OneDrive…). From now on you can manage all your documents directly from that file app. Tap the in the top right three balls to add your own server. With the option change you can add other apps and services if desired.
Step 2: Files
Under the tab recent Files brings together all your most recently opened files. It doesn’t matter if that was locally on your device, in iCloud Drive or OneDrive. After all, you can also save or share things from the share menu in iOS.
