iOS 11 finally adds a file management app to iOS. After 10 years of iOS, the new Files app brings user exposed file system to the iPhone and iPad. And of course, in true Apple sense, this is done in a totally private manner. No system files are accessible by the user.
iOS 11 switches out the old iCloud Drive app for a brand new Files app. Files app brings native file management system for files on your device and the one’s stores in cloud storage services like iCloud Drive, Dropbox and more. Files app is way better than iCloud Drive app from iOS 10. One of the new features in the app is the ability to share and collaborate on files stored in iCloud Drive.
It’s been a little bit of a stretch since the last iCloud service saw some downtime issues, but now iCloud Mail is being plagued.
Once you’ve upgraded to iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra, you’ll be able to share your iCloud storage with every member in your Family Sharing plan (up to 6 members). The sharing takes place seamlessly and you’ll be able to monitor who’s using how much storage.
Apple recently updated its System Status page to better reflect outages and/or issues, but sometimes some issues just sneak through.
Apple is taking a big step to ensure the safety of your iCloud account. Starting June 15, all apps that require iCloud access will need an app-specific password. If you’re already signed into a third-party app with iCloud access through your Apple ID, you will be signed out and will have to generate an app-specific password to sign in again. This mostly pertains to apps like Microsoft Outlook, and Mozilla Thunderbird which can access your iCloud account.
Apple has sent out emails to some iOS users, informing them that the recent update to iOS 10.3 may have enabled some on-device services after they were initially disabled by the user.
