How to Customize Tags in Files App in iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad

Managing files have become far easier on iOS devices now! Drive through this complete guide to rearrange and remove Tags in Files app in iOS 11 on your iPhone and iPad.

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.
