As predicted, Apple today announced
a new iOS 11 app called Files at its WWDC Keynote in San Jose, California.
The new Files app for iOS brings together files and documents stored in the cloud across various apps and services, including third-party cloud storage like Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, and Google Drive.
The new Files app keeps everything in one place, whether files are stored locally, in iCloud Drive or across other providers like Box, Dropbox and more, and with Drag and Drop available across the system, moving images and text is easier than ever.
With an interface similar to Finder on the Mac, Files for iOS lets users organize and structure their files with proper folders and subfolders, with various file-based options available at a touch.
Earlier today, a new placeholder app listing
for a "Files" app appeared on the iOS App Store. iOS 11 is expected to be released by Apple in the fall.
