Good news for Apple lovers, the compnay is going to launch a new file application for iOS 11. This week a new placeholder listing has gone live on the App Store named ‘Files’ application ahead of WWDC keynote address. A 9to5Mac report suggests that the company might bring an expanded file system in upcoming iOS 11.
There is no official confirmation yet, the leaked details in App Store hints that the app likely to come pre-installed in iOS 11. The app narration simply reads “File app for iOS” which require iOS 11+ and the developer listed as Apple lnc.
The listing first discovered by developer Steven Throughton-Smith on Twitter, who also gave info that the app will only support 64-bit devices. This indicates that Apple is taking back its steps from 32bit devices this year with iOS 11 since there are a lack of 32-bit apps in App Store search results.

With the Files app users will be able to delete apps on iOS 11 which is currently not possible. We all are familiar with File System – this is used to store and manage the personal documents, but not access everything stored within iOS. The enhanced file management system has been a ordinary request for iOS users, especially with the iPad.
File management approach of Apple, has faltered over the years. As well as, company has argued that there is no need a file system over iOS. It has, since had a scattered change of opinion, bringing things like iCloud Drive to iOS, but still not offering users full control over their files.
