File Manager iPhone: here are the best

iPhone File Manager

In this article, we will see together the best file managers on the iPhone to manage files and shares. These apps will allow you to organize downloads, transfer files to PC, protect files, etc.

Are you looking for programs to explore iPhone? Are you looking for the best file manager for iPhone? You’re in the right place!

We have tried and selected for you the best file managers for iPhone, the programs that allow you to explore files and folders on your smartphone easily, for free and without Jailbreak.

Thanks to these programs you can easily explore iPhone folders, create new folders, move them, edit them, change and move files within them. But in reality, these programs will offer you a lot. much more!

Explore iPhone content

As you surely know, iOS (iPhone operating system) does not allow you to browse through folders freely, as you would on any other computer with Windows, macOS or Android device. 

Concretely, users in possession of an iPhone cannot see the files inside the device, move them, delete them or rename them freely as there is no real file manager, a tool to manage iPhone files freely.

Of course, I know that on iOS there is an app called File to manage the files, the problem is that this program works mainly as an interface to create folders on iCloud and is not a real file manager. For example, this app DOES NOT allow you to enter the iPhone file system,  as it does not allow you to create, modify or move other folders. In short, it is a very limited app and almost useless from my point of view.

So I worked hard and looked for alternative programs to iFile for iPhone, applications that allow you to organize internet downloads, transfer files to a PC, protect private files with passwords and open files on cloud services like Dropbox.

After trying so many, I selected the best file managers currently available for iPhone. 

As already anticipated, obviously the file managers for iPhone are more limited than those present on Windows and Android PCs (due to the limitations of iOS), but with these programs, you will still be able to better manage the files you download directly to iPhone and organize them in a way intelligent.

Having said that, without wasting any more time, let’s see what are the best file managers available for iOS.

Here are the best programs we’ve selected for you:
