In 2014, Apple introduced iCloud Drive, which let you access your saved files across your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
iCloud Drive is useful for getting documents saved to a few folders on your computer, but it’s limited to what you can store in iCloud. It’s not a true file system, which is what the iPad deserves.
On Mac computers, the main file system is called Finder. You can find documents quickly and easily, and rearrange them to your liking using folders. You can send any documents or folders to the trash, where you have one more opportunity to keep them before you lose them forever.
The closest approximation to a file system on the iPad, unfortunately, is the Files app, which is really just iCloud Drive. If you haven’t connected your iPad to your iCloud account, the Files app simply doesn’t work. This isn’t the case when you buy a new Mac computer.
If you don’t like the Files app, you can also use Spotlight Search on the iPad, where you pull down from the middle of the screen to search for anything on your device, but that’s about it.
As a professional user, I want the ability to see and organize all of my files on the fly without needing to visit specific applications, or be connected to iCloud. I just want to be able to explore all of the files and data on my iPad like I can on my Mac. Apple may not have considered baking a full file system into iOS because you’re not doing a ton of work on an iPhone, but it’s one of the biggest aspects that keeps the iPad from becoming a true laptop replacement.
