Where are my downloads on my iPhone

iPhone won’t let us download files and external because of the security protocols. Usually you can only download things that are available in the apps, and you will only find it in that app or on your iCloud. Whether you saved a photo from the web or another app, it will appear in the Photos app. The music you downloaded from Apple is available in the Downloaded section of the Music app. If you have downloaded documents, files or videos in any other way, it would be difficult for you to find the folder on iPhone. It can also be a deeply archived folder. Who knows!

Since iOS allows users to access the file system, there is no download folder on the iPhone per se. Files application was only recently introduced with iOS 11. The files app has its own purpose. It allows you to save files such as PDFs, documents, music, and so on. When you download something, it must be saved in your file application. It will also help you manage files on iCloud Drive and on your iPhone, as long as the files on your device can be stored in this Files app. In addition, the Files app has access to various additional cloud services, such as Dropbox. However, only a few apps provide access to the Files app.

NOTE: If you’re using iOS 10 or earlier and don’t have the Files app, you’ll need to find a custom download app and use it as the download folder.
