Hidden in the settings menu of the just-unveiled iOS 9, today it was found that iCloud Drive will be getting its own dedicated app experience with the newest iteration of iOS.

iCloud Drive 4
The app, hidden by a "Show on Home Screen" command in the iCloud Drive section of settings, will allow users to interact and manage all of their saved files within iCloud inside of the app.

iCloud Drive 2
The specific setting for turning on the hidden app lies in Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive. Once users decide to turn on the "Show on Home Screen", the app will show up on their home screen alongside their previously downloaded apps.

Can they now put toggles in to allow people to turn off the other stock apps that they don't want? Seems like doing that would make a lot of people happy!

Now just add a Windows folder sync client and this could compete with Dropbox. But not without it.
