Apple has also opened things up to third-party applications. Dropbox is probably the most familiar name in the space. Google Drive is also a popular option, and for those users who have limited iCloud storage, these two services might be the best options for downloading files.

4) At this point, you may rename the file and select a specific location before saving it. Personally, I like to save my downloaded files in the Downloads folder, so this is the folder I will select. Now tap the Save button.

The steps mentioned above work great if the file you are trying to download is available publicly from a website. But things can get a little tricky if you are trying to download a file or document that is stored on a password-protected website.

If you choose to download the file to the My Files/Downloads folder, then the file will be stored locally on your device. From Documents 5, you will then be able to move it to iCloud or Dropbox, or Google Drive, for example. You will also be able to share it via email.

Documents serves as a central hub for all your cloud services and local files. It's the easiest way to use Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, and WebDAV on iPhone and iPad to access all your files from one app. You can either work directly in the cloud storage or download the files you need to use offline.

If you turned on iCloud Drive using iCloud for Windows on a PC, you can pin a file or folder to keep it downloaded to your device. Any changes you make to the file will automatically upload to iCloud Drive when you're back online.

As the demand for more and higher quality media increases, so too does the requirement for more space to store such media. Since the hardware (e.g. a hard drive in an iPhone) cannot keep up with this demand, people turn to Cloud Storage to store their data - this keeps space free on their mobile device.

Duplicate Sweeper can quickly scan multiple folder or drives to return your duplicates. Simply select whether to keep the newest or the oldest of each duplicate to remove them automatically, or manually select which to remove.

This is an accessory that you must purchase separately for the iPad. It looks very much like a power adapter, with one end attaching to the power slot on the iPad itself and the other to the USB drive. To use, simply plug the appropriate ends into the iPad and USB drive respectively and then access the drive's contents through the iPad to get to your files.

Also worth noting is that most USB flash drives require 500 milliamps (mA) of power to operate. This is greater than what the USB-C outputs on iPads can provide. As such, you must use flash drives that require less than 100 mA of power to work. These are common, so a quick web search on "USB less than 100 mA" should produce several results (many of them affordable, like around $15), but it must be stated since USB drives using more than 100 mA will not power up in the adapter because of this.

How can I mark this directory as "available offline" on my iPad, so that I don't have to tap every single file before I leave to make sure they've all been downloaded to the iPad? (I will be without internet nearly all the trip.)

I do not think there is an "Keep Offline" feature on iCloud. I generally hit the download icon next to the files that I would need before I travel. But on iOS13 there is a new pin feature for folders that would keep the folder for offline access.

When you want to download a file to an iPad, however, the experience is much less straightforward. iPads have no dedicated file storage system; instead, you have to specify where a file should be stored at the time of its download.

If you don't want to spend all your time assigning various download locations to different apps, the best thing to do is get the Google Drive or Dropbox app on your iPad and use these as catch-all spots for your downloads.

Now you want to copy over the photos, videos, and songs taking up space on your iPhone/iPad for safe storage. However, iOS is a closed system, which makes data transfer not that easy. When connecting iPhone/iPad to computer, you are not allowed to copy and paste files to external hard drive directly.

But fortunately, the situation has changed since iOS 13 & iPadOS 13: iPhone and iPad now support external hard drives and flash drives. That means you can move files freely between the external hard drive and iPhone or iPad without computer!

Files stored in the cloud can be accessed on any device. We can take advantage of this feature to achieve iPhone/iPad to external hard drive transfer. First upload files to Google Drive on iPhone/iPad > Then download files on computer > Finally copy files to external hard drive. Here we take Google Drive as an example.

FoneTool also allows you to backup the whole iPhone/iPad to external hard drive. Simply click Phone Backup > Selective Backup and choose the files you want to backup. If you accidentally lost any data on iPhone/iPad, you can restore the backup files to device and it will not erase any existing data.

If you want to download a single picture to edit, simply open the photo in your preferred photo editing app. For example, open the Photos app and tap Edit at the top right.

Google Docs, the free online document storage from Google, was not always available for mobile Apple devices or the iPad. Fortunately for iPad owners, in late 2010 it became possible to view, edit and download your documents right from your iPad. Google makes it easy to save your work within the document, offering an auto-save feature. You can also download a document in MS Office, Open Office or PDF form.

Download a document to your device by returning to the Google Docs homepage on your iPad. Tap the "Desktop" again if you were returned to the mobile version, and check the box next to the document you want to download. Go to the "More" menu above your list of documents and choose "Download" from the menu. Choose the type of file to which you want to covert your Google Doc and tap "Download."

Access all your Box files directly from your desktop, without taking up much hard drive space. Box Drive is natively integrated into Mac Finder and Windows Explorer, making it easy to share and collaborate on files.

If you aren't sure where to start, we can walk you through the setup process and how to start using iCloud Drive on your best iPhone and/or your best iPad! Alternatively, consider one of the best flash drives for iPhone as a more traditional backup method.

Note: If you're unable to find the Creative Cloud option under Locations, download the Creative Cloud app on your iPad and ensure that you are signed in. To add Creative Cloud under Locations, see the directions listed under 'Use third-party apps' in the Files section in Use the Files app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

You can easily download files and attachments on your iPhone and access them using the Files app. You can even hide files like Photos and Videos on your iPhone. But what can be hard sometimes is locating and accessing the downloaded files on your iPhone.

When you're connected to the network, Documents lets you work with files right in the cloud storage, without downloading them - all the changes will be automatically saved to the cloud. Meanwhile, you can also download files from different cloud storages with a couple of taps:

In the Files app, tap on the connected drive to see all files stored within it. Files and folders can be viewed and opened (if an app is installed to support the file type). The method of interacting with files changes slightly based on the version of iPadOS running. See this Apple article and select the appropriate iPadOS version for usage information. A video covering the use of the file app is also available on the Apple support YouTube channel.
