iCloud Drive does it all, and better.
Personal yes. For businesses, iCloud is not the solution.

iCloud Drive is nearly perfect, but why can’t I manually purge downloads on iOS? I already listened to that file, I don’t want it sitting around taking storage, and I also don’t want files randomly disappearing off to the cloud. I wish they gave just a bit more control like on macOS. And allow the cache location be stored externally on macOS too.

You're lucky. Sometimes my iCloud Drive takes 10 minutes to upload a small 10 MB file.

Hopefully this works better than previous versions of Box Drive which have been TRASH.

Ironically, Apple uses Box internally and for ACNs. Mostly because iCloud can't be deployed in business and multi-user environments.
I can confirm you are talking total nonsense.

Meanwhile, not a peep from Dropbox, one of the worst Intel-only apps. Their web site is inundated with hundreds of requests for even just an Apple Silicon beta and it appears they are not working on it.

I hope Apple kills Rosetta 2 next year and that is the end of Dropbox.
