A full-fledged “Files” app for iOS (very much in line with Finder for macOS) had been on my wishlist for long. Finally, it has arrived in iOS 11 with all the neat features to let you manage, view, store, organize and share files from iCloud and other cloud-based services. There is also a Tags section that allows you to add colored and custom-named tags to any file. The tags help you find documents with ease. What's more, you can even customize tags in Files in iOS 11 on your iPhone and iPad to make your task more straightforward!

If you have used Finder on Mac, you would find Tags quite familiar. You have the option to rearrange tags to suit your needs better. Just in case, you don't like any tags or no longer want to use them, you can remove them from the list. Read on to find out how it works.
