iCloud Drive is more or less Apple’s answer to Dropbox and Google Drive which have already been in existence for quite some time.

The sole objective of introducing iCloud Drive is to provide a file/folder platform where users can simply drag and drop any file, photo, data or documents and access files within an app quite easily. Formerly, all files were locked within (and to) an app and it was almost impossible to access these in a file/folder system.

That’s all, mate!
