Even though iOS 9 took care of a number of concerns that many iPhone and iPad users were complaining about, there are still some issues that need to fixed when iOS 10 rolls out. One of those things holding back the iPad and the iPhone is that it is always a hassle managing various files.
What Users Want for iOS 10
When iOS 10 will be released to iPhones and iPads (whenever that may be), Apple should extend the support for more of their features a bit further. For instance, let’s first take a look at Finder for the iOS. For many years, there was nothing quite like it; items can be passed around from app to app, and you can do multiple things with such a feature such as make copies and create your very own version-control nightmares. However, not all apps supported by Apple’s mobile devices could be read and written from your repository. While your Apple smartphone or tablet has its own internal repository, there’s no hard drive icon to look what’s inside of it unless you connect the device to the computer. Furthermore, that would only bring you to manage your files with the use of iTunes, and it doesn’t actually quite offer the best user-experience around.
Well, it may be that Apple is looking at file systems as something that is very complicated, and they’re not wrong in that regard. The idea here is that people don’t have to spend a whole lot of time just to transfer files from a computer to the mobile device. Computers are smart, smartphones are, well, smart, and tablets are also smart; but the question still remains to this day is why is it so hard to transfer or even look at files inside Apple’s mobile devices?
Unfortunately, if you take out one feature or change it drastically, it can create a ripple effect that may otherwise destroy the entire system. Furthermore, Apple’s iOS already has a unique ecosystem within so changing one aspect can deliver an entirely new experience which might displease some loyal customers.
Hence, it may be a long shot to that iOS 10 will have a simpler and better way of managing your iPhone or your iPads files without having to connect it to a computer and running Finder. If we were to look at Apple’s number one rival in terms of mobile technology, Android, they already have such a feature for a good long while. In fact, managing files is as easy as pointing, clicking, and sometimes dragging files into the device. You can even look into the device’s files with the accompanied file manager app that comes with just about every Android device. So if Apple’s competitor can deal with such a feature, why can’t they?
