iOS 11 comes with a new built in files manager called Files.
It connects all your cloud services like iCloud, Onedrive, Dropbox etc into one place, but it goes far beyond that by offering the ability to save files locally too, and enable access from other apps.
At iOS 11 GM it is not a straightforward as it was supposed to. Trying to save a file locally is not enable out of the box, since option “On my iPhone” cannot be in chosen…
Visiting Files app and trying to access local storage is not an option
Even though it is not clear whether this is intentional or not, Apple offers a workaround. All we have to do is download an app from their office suit, let’s say Pages .
Now a folder is created locally handling Pages’ files. We can access it from sharing menu, but not from Files app unless we save our first file locally.
The ability to create folder in root folder is not able yet, but we can do so inside Pages folder.
From now on we have save files locally in our custom folder!
