What is iFile App?
iFile is an iOS File Manager App, an advanced app that gives you unbridled access to your file system Given that you can do the same thing in Windows using Explorer, or on the Mac using Finder, it is a bit perplexing that Apple won’t let you see your iOS file system, but iFile gives you that access as well as the ability to customize your files in multiple ways.
