One of the new features in iOS 11 is the Files app. It’s a basic file management system that replaced the iCloud Drive app. Files lets you manage files and folders that are stored in the cloud. It also lets third-party cloud storage apps plug into the Files app. But which ones support iOS 11 Files?
Cloud Storage in Files
There are two different types of apps that support iOS 11 Files. The first group is made up of the major cloud storage providers, like Dropbox, Google, Microsoft, etc. The second group are apps that use iCloud Drive as storage, but aren’t a cloud provider, like Documents by Readdle. Here are the apps that we know of that support iOS 11 Files.
Note: Apps that are locked with a password or Touch ID can’t be accessed within the Files app. Example, Cryptomator.
