Apple Files

Apple finally introduced a much-needed file management application for iOS that gives iPhone and iPad users significantly more control over their files, It is simply called Files.

The file management system will come with support for nested folders and spring loading. It will additionally offer a search option as well as a dedicated ‘Favorites’ tab for easy access.

This is a huge move for Apple as it virtually transforms iOS from a mobile operating system to something with legitimate desktop potential.

Apple is giving iPhone and iPad users more flexibility to use their mobile devices as improvised desktop stand-ins – as far as file management goes at least.

The good thing about the app is that it will continue to work with iCloud and third-party apps like Dropbox, Adobe Creative Crowd and more.
