The new Files app provides a central space for users to browse, search, and organize files — including files in your apps, on other iOS devices, in iCloud Drive, and across other services like Box and Dropbox. Users can open files right from within your app with the new, standard document manager in iOS 11. Take advantage of service-specific APIs from cloud storage providers and use iCloud Sharing to let users easily share their files.
