How to save or Download Files and Documents to Your iPhone or iPad
It’s always important to have your important documents with you at all times so that you can access them whenever you need them. However, the question of how to save or download files and documents to your iPhone or iPad can be somewhat challenging, especially if you don’t have the right software. This article will teach you the best ways to save or download files and documents to your iPhone or iPad so that they’re always accessible when you need them most.
How do I save or download files to my iPhone?
Saving files can be done in a few different ways on your iOS device. To save from an app, open the app and tap on the + button in the upper-right corner of the screen. Select the file you want to save, then choose Save on the pop-up menu. If you’re saving a photo, video, song, PDF or other media file, it will appear in the File Management tab at the bottom of your Photos app. You can also download any file by opening it within Safari and tapping Download on the pop-up window that appears.
Why does it ask me if I want to open these file types?
When you try to open a document on your iPhone or iPad, it will pop up with a list of file types it can use to open the document. This is because some file types are not compatible with iOS (the operating system your phone uses) but can be opened by other applications like Microsoft Word.
However, many of these files are more likely than not going to be pictures that you would rather save for later viewing. To do this, tap the photo you want to save then tap Save Image in the upper right corner. You can also select multiple photos at once by tapping on them then tapping Save Images in the upper right corner.
What can I store on my iOS device?
Your iOS device can store different types of files, including PDFs, Microsoft Office files, images, audio recordings, spreadsheets, and more. Depending on the size of the file you want to save for offline use on your iOS device, it may be easier (and faster) if you send an email with a link in it rather than physically emailing the file. To do this, select forward from the mail message that contains the file. On the top left corner of your screen is a box with an arrow pointing up and down; click this button until you see Attach. Click Attach to add any files from your email that you want to save on your phone.
Can I use Microsoft Office on my Apple device?
You can do most of your day-to-day work in Microsoft Office on your Apple device. There are a few restrictions on what you can do, but all the functions that you’re accustomed to in Office are present, including email (Outlook), document creation (Word), spreadsheet manipulation (Excel), presentation creation (PowerPoint) and more. You just won’t be able to use macros, create fancy layout features with drawing tools, link presentations together or export files in certain formats like PDF.
Can I edit these file types on my mobile device?
Most file types can be saved on your mobile device using an app such as Google Drive. However, there are a few exceptions. For example, files created with Microsoft Word cannot be edited in the Google Drive app. If you try to edit these files in the Google Drive app, they will show up in read-only mode; meaning you can only read them but not edit them or save changes. Other file types that can’t be viewed, edited, or saved to your mobile device include: Adobe PDFs (.pdf), PowerPoint presentations (.ppt), AutoCAD drawings (.dwg), OpenOffice documents (.odt) and iWork Pages documents (.pages).
What are the best apps for storing documents and photos in iCloud Drive?
Here are five ways you can save documents, photos, and other files in iCloud Drive: 1. Drag any file from your desktop onto the iCloud Drive app on your home screen. 2. Press the Share button on a document you’re looking at, click iCloud Drive and then send it from there. 3. In the Photos app, tap Select (located near the top-right corner of your photo) > tap iCloud Photo Library > tap done (located near the bottom-left corner of your photo). 4. In Pages, Numbers, Keynote, GarageBand and some third-party apps like Adobe Acrobat DC that support PDFs and Office files (including Word docs), select Share > iCloud Drive > Done (located near the bottom-left corner of your photo). 5.
Where can I find reviews of other apps that offer this functionality?
ICloud is a great way to back up your data, but it’s not the only way. If you have a lot of large files, iCloud might not be the best option for backing up your documents. Another app that lets you save documents from your iPhone is Mcloud, which does the same thing as iCloud with one important difference: it lets you store documents of any size for $0.99/month. One downside? You can’t edit the document on your phone. But if you’re looking for an inexpensive alternative to iCloud, this could be a good solution.

Once you’ve selected the file(s) or document(s) you want to save, tap the word done in the upper-right corner of your screen. From there, all that’s left is syncing your device with iTunes by plugging it into your computer’s USB cable (make sure it’s plugged in before clicking done) and checking the file(s) or document(s) under iTunes sync content on iTunes. You’ll also have the option to create a new folder for saving any new files as well as dragging items from one folder to another for organization purposes. Now that you know how to save files or documents on your iPhone or iPad, go ahead and start uploading them!
