Is GZ's running this? How is the new file system working. More specifically, how do you view Cloud files, Dropbox etc, offline?

I'm running it on my iPad Pro (9.7") and it's fantastic, really makes the iPad more of a productivity device than just a consumption one.

 

The Files app only has iCloud Drive at the moment (for me at least), as no other apps seem to have updated for the new Files framework just yet.

 

I'm looking forward to getting Dropbox and maybe OneDrive on there eventually.

Is iCloud Drive easy to access of line, how does that work? I don't use iCloud so have no idea. Thanks.

You can create a local folder in there, although I don't recall the exact steps (I've rolled back to iOS 10).

I have beta 2 and Google Drive is working.  Haven't tried dropbox.

 

I'm finding quite a few apps that close suddenly or become unresponsive, still going to keep running it though.  Overall it's a rather nice upgrade.

iOS updates always launch in September, typically around 1 week before the new iPhone release. It releases for iPhone & iPad at the same time.
