iCloud Drive

Any kind of file. On all your devices.

With iCloud Drive, you can safely store all your presentations, spreadsheets, PDFs, images, and any other kind of document in iCloud — and access them from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC. And the new iCloud Drive app built into iOS 9 makes it even easier to bring up documents on your iOS device. Because you can access anything you save to iCloud right from one place on your Home screen.

Keeping your files in iCloud is simple. Just as it should be.

With the iCloud Drive app built into iOS 9, all your files are easy to find, organize, and share — all from one place. To add new files, just start a new document using an iCloud-enabled app on your iOS device. And on your Mac running OS X Yosemite or later, or your PC running Windows 7 or later, you can just drag files into the iCloud Drive folder. Everything stays up to date automatically — across all your devices.

Edits you make on one device
appear on all of them.

Using iCloud Drive means you’ll always have access to the latest version of all your documents from any device. For example, you can start creating a presentation on your Mac at home, then make final edits and present it in class using your iPad. All the changes you make along the way appear automatically on all your devices.

Start your work in one app.
Add the finishing touches in another.

Your apps can now share files, which means you can access and work on the same file across multiple apps. Easily search for a file or browse in the new iCloud Drive app built into iOS 9 by date, name, or tags you added on your Mac. When you’ve found the file you need, simply open it in any compatible app to edit it. For example, you can create a drawing in a sketching app, then open it in a painting app to color it in. Or create a chart in one app and place it in a slideshow using a presentation app. No more making copies or importing documents from one app to another. It’s a whole new level of collaboration between apps.
