During the WWDC 2017 that Apple held last Monday we had the opportunity to know above a huge amount of news in virtually all physical devices of the company - waiting for clear is the traditional month of September for the iPhone - and the brand new iOS 11, the new Apple operating system for iPhone and iPad that brings a huge stack of new features, including one long demanded by its users: a kind of file manager or Finder called Files.
With Files we solve the problem of organizing and viewing the documents stored in the terminal and that until now we could only open through applications or downloading apps that came to replace that function. Of course, it seemed a very necessary measure to be able to manipulate our files and that curiously in Android was already present a whopping 9 years, however from Cupertino were reluctant to adopt it.
Although in the demonstration of the WWDC 2017 we saw it on an iPad, as we can see in our iPhone 7 with iOS 11 installed beta version, it will also be available on our favorite smartphone. All a success. By the way, as a curiosity, in Castilian will adopt the name of "Files", as we see in the photo shown below:
What can we do with Files?
Let's not fool ourselves, Apple is much more restrictive in terms of permissiveness and freedom of users than Android, a fact that directly affects the security of their devices. What does this all mean? Well, unlike Android, where anyone can delete by mistake or ignorance important files for the operation of the terminal, Apple will make sure to limit the type of document to be manipulated.
With Files we can create folders, copy and paste documents, change location one or several files at a time, put labels and we can also integrate it into third party apps like Dropbox, Google Drive or Box. Better late than never.
