If you’re a Dropbox user and store all your files and documents in this storage application, you can access and edit the same on your iPhone and iPad with the help of the ‘Files’ application.

One important information to be noted here is that your Apple device must have the latest iOS version that is iOS 13 or later for it to support Dropbox apps. Also, you need to install and launch the ‘Dropbox’ application in your iPhone and iPad to get started with it. The ‘Files’ app works with the older versions of the Apple device, yet it is recommended to have the recent version updated as it has a lot of new features.

The steps to access and edit Dropbox files on an iPhone and iPad are:

  1. Locate for the ‘Files’ application on your Apple device. If you do not have it installed, download the same from the ‘App Store.’
  2. Once the installation of the application is done, open the app located on the home screen of your iPhone and iPad.
  3.  List of options will appear in the Browse menu, select ‘Dropbox’ from the same.
  4. All the folders stored in the Dropbox will appear in the next window. Click on any file to view.
  5. If you want to make changes to the folder, click and long-press the desired folder for a few seconds to view the edit options. Under these edit options, you can change the name of your folder, separate the folders by adding color tags, compress the file, etc. You can choose to move your file to another destination by selecting the ‘Move’ option from the drop-down menu.
  6. With other editing options of Cloud services, you can also choose to transfer your Dropbox files to iCloud storage, Google Drive, etc.

If you carefully follow all the steps mentioned above, it’ll become easy to work with the Dropbox application and will take no time to view or edit folders.

The Dropbox also works as a backup for the media stored on your phone. You can access your pictures in the Dropbox anytime you like.

You can view and make changes to your Dropbox from the application within itself. Still, people find it comfortable and handy to do it with the help of the ‘Files’ app as all the data stored in other storage devices can also be accessed and edited under the same roof.

Since this is a cloud-based assistance, all the progressions you make in the Dropbox of the ‘Files’ application will be consequently refreshed on the cloud. The recently included data would show up very quickly when you get to your Dropbox profile from the other gadget like your PC or tablet.

It is evident that if you own an Apple device, you also use its Cloud services. With the help of the ‘Files’ app, not only can you manage Dropbox files but also the iCloud files. The changes made in the folder or files get in synchronization when you access the service on any other device.
