The Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) has kicked off already but only hours before the inauguration of the event, Apple might have accidentally leaked some crucial information about its new developments – a new, original file managing app for the iOS 11.
There’s already been news about the new version of Apple’s operating system – iOS 11 – set to be revealed this week at the Worldwide Developers conference (WWDC). With the introduction of the new iOS, we naturally expected Apple to introduce some major changes to its software.
For years now, iPhone and iPad owners have been eyeing Android users enviously with their organized file-manager apps and abilities. Until now, iOS lacked a feature that could easily and conveniently manage the files on their devices. With enormous storage spaces the Apple gadgets offer, the existence of a file managing app slowly became a necessity. Thankfully, Apple might have finally seen to this problem and is set to launch an iOS 11 supported file-manager app.
The rumors of this application sparked when the company accidentally added a large, blank entry in the Apple App Store that was named ‘Files’ – pretty, basic, right? A prominent game and app developer, Steve Troughton Smith noticed the change and tweeted about it on his Twitter account. Have a look:

The listing of the app indicates that it needs iOS 11 to run so we know it’s something new that will come with the operating system upgrade.
The WWDC is scheduled for five days, from Monday 5th June to Friday 9th June. We might receive an official explanation to this leaked, accidental addition to the Apple Store some time during these five days. Along with the news of new changes to the software, Apple is also rumored to expand its Voice-Assistant, Siri and possibly introduce a hardware that would incorporate Siri wholly, like a Siri Speaker perhaps.
Other predictions of what Apple plans to unveil in the WWDC include the iPad Pro and four new iPad tablets. Unfortunately, the company might not yet talk about the new iPhone 8 we’ve all been so anxiously waiting for.
If the rumors about the software changes in iOS 11 are true, and if Apple introduces a native, original file managing application, it would definitely answer the prayers of many Apple users who have been longing for a way to organize their storage.
More information regarding the new app is expected to come this week, so watch out for it, Apple fans!
