How to create archives on iPhone and iPad with iOS 11

The Files in iOS 11 application uses a new document management system. In addition to the ability to sort files, support for archives was added. In Files, you can open and preview document previews. If you transfer multiple files from the application to the Mailbox, they are automatically converted to an archive. But on this functionality of the archives ends.

If you want to create archives from documents, you will need a new Zipped application. It allows you to open archives that are stored in the Files. In the application, you can also select several documents and create an archive from them, which you can share anywhere.
