Only a few hours remain to the kick off the Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2017) and it looks like a major news has been leaked regarding the iOS 11, just before the keynote event. The renowned developer Steve Troughton-Smith has spotted a placeholder listing for an Apple-exclusive application named as ‘Files’ on the iOS App Store. Although the listing does not reveal any detailed information about the Apple-developed application, it is confirmed that the Files application runs only on yet-to-announced iOS 11 operating system and the icon looks like a macOS-style folder.
Apple is very much concerned about the file management issue of the iPhones and since the inception of this much-coveted smartphone lineup, the Cupertino-based tech giant has designated the handling of the documents to individual applications and cloud services.

The current policy of the iCloud Drive gives an impression of a file structure, but it’s only a semblance, the files have to be stored on the iCloud by themselves. Whereas, Android, being an open-source platform, follows more conventional on-device file management and integration with multiple cloud storage providers. Apple is planning to make improvements in file management for a long time, and it looks like this is the ideal time to do it as the company has given stress on increasing the productivity of the iPads and iPhones this year.
So what will be the functionality of the iOS 11 based ‘Files’ app and what will be the working procedure, we are still unsure about it. Wait for a couple of hours more, as the WWDC 2017 keynote is already knocking at our door. To know more news about the WWDC 2017 and iOS 11, stick to our website.
