If you have downloaded files to your iPhone or iPad, accessing them might be confusing. There’s a special folder where iOS and iPadOS store downloads, and you can find it via the Files app. Let’s find out how to locate downloaded files.
This is for the iPhone and iPad. Screenshots are from iPhone XR
First, locate the Files app on your iPhone or iPad. The quickest way to do this is with Spotlight Search. Swipe one finger down from the middle of the Home screen, and then type Files. In the search results, then tap the Files icon. Refer to the below image:
Next, select the Browse tab at the bottom. See the below image:
Now, tap On My iPhone or On My iPad, depending on which device you are using. The list under Locations will vary depending on which apps you have installed, but your device will always have an On My [Device] listing. See the following image:
Next, you will see a list of folders which will vary depending on what apps you have installed. Generally, most people save files to the Downloads folder, so tap this folder. Refer to the below image:
Now, you will see a list of all the files you have downloaded. During the download process, you can save a file to a folder other than Downloads. If you do not see the file you are looking for, tap the Back arrow at the upper left-hand corner, and then tap another folder. See the below image:
Next, once you locate the file you want, you can tap it to preview it, or tap and hold it to open a pop-up menu. Then, you can move, copy, or rename the file, along with other operations. See the following image:
