How to rename files and folders in the iOS Files app
Appendix Files for iOS and iCloud Drive form an excellent file system for the iPhone and iPad. One of the most commonly used functions of file systems is the ability to rename files and folders. Naturally, in Files this possibility also exists.
Apple is fairly constant in relation to the functionality of different operating systems, so if you already know how to rename a file or folder on a Mac, then the process will be familiar to you.

How to rename a file or folder in Files

  • Open the Files app on your iPhone or iPad.
  • Find the file or folder you want to rename.
  • Tap the name of the file or folder.
  • Enter a new name and click “Done” in the upper right corner of the screen.
  • Everything is so simple. The process will be the same for renaming the folder.
You can change the names of any files and folders in the Files and iCloud Drive application. It can be a newly created new folder, a saved PDF web page, a file from another device, something copied from a Mac, etc.
A lot of things in the Files are stored not locally, but in iCloud, so sometimes the names change with a little delay. It is worth noting that if you have synchronization enabled, the name of the file or folder will change on all devices at once. The speed of applying changes depends on the speed of your Internet.
Recall that before the application files called iCloud Drive, but with a new name in it appeared and the ability to store files locally. You can also use synchronization.
