An iPhone may be a pocket computer, but it doesn’t work the way a desktop or laptop computer works. On a computer, you interact directly with stored files: you open them, work on them, and save them; you organize them in folders using macOS Finder or Windows File Explorer; and you can view them when you want.
iOS is very different, you don’t have access to the entire file system. There’s a good reason for this: it’s called sandboxing. This is a security feature that ensures that apps are sequestered, and no app – or its data or files – can communicate with another app. There are some exceptions to this, of course: you can access your photo library from apps other than Photos to send pictures via email or Messages; you can play music files with third-party music player apps; and so on. But in general, sandboxing means that apps can’t access other apps, their data, or their files. An app has only access to its own folder (sandbox).
Therefore the focus is on apps, and, while apps do work with files under the hood, you don’t usually see them. Some apps do allow you to see files, but it depends on the apps. The ones that let you see files generally allow these files to be synced from a computer, using File Sharing:
How to Transfer files and folders to an iPhone or iPad App from a Mac or PC.
But most apps don’t have File Sharing enabled. Also even if the app has File Sharing enabled, you cannot access other folders than the Documents folder. In an app’s sandbox you also have a Library folder containing app’s settings, configuration, and sometimes content:
How to export, backup and transfer iOS Apps’ Data and Settings.
With iMazing, you can access the Library folder of apps as well as nearly the entire iOS file system via a backup of your device.
Here’s how to browse files on your iOS device:
your device. Make sure to encrypt your backup so iMazing can back up all your data.
- Select your device in iMazing, then click Apps.
- Select an app, then enter its Backup folder.
- Navigate that folder to find files. Select files you want to view; you may or may not be able to view them, depending on which apps are needed to read their data.
- Select files, then click Copy to Mac or Copy to PC to copy them to your computer. You may then be able to view their contents with an app that wasn’t used to create them.
- Export an app’s file and data to your computer to restore it later or transfer it to an other device: Export, backup and transfer iOS Apps’ Data and Settings
Before you begin
Download and install iMazing on your Mac or PC computer
1. Launch iMazing on your computer and connect your device.
Download and install iMazing. Launch the app, and connect your device to your Mac or PC.
2. Select your device in the iMazing’s sidebar, then click Back Up.
Select your device in the sidebar, then click Back Up. Tell iMazing to back up your device; this may take a minute or two. Follow the instructions in this article to perform the backup.
3. Select an app, then view its Backup folder
When the backup has completed, click your device in the iMazing sidebar. It expands to show its content: Apps, Camera, Photos, Music, and more.
Click Apps, then select the app whose files or data you want to view. You’ll see that for many apps the Documents folder shows a “Do Not Enter” icon; this means that these apps have not enabled file sharing. But this isn’t a problem. Since iMazing has just backed up your device, you can access these files from the app’s Backup folder. This folder gives you access to that part of your device’s backup that contains files and data for the specific app.
Select the Backup folder belonging to the app whose files you want to view.
4. Browse files
You can view these files in three ways from the View Mode button in iMazing’s toolbar: as icons, in list view, or in column view:
- Icon view: If you’re in Icon view, you can double click an app or a folder to view its contents, as you would on a computer. To move back in your viewing history, click the < button in the toolbar.
- List view: In List view, you can click the disclosure triangles to the left of any folder to view its contents, then continue to drill down in the sub-folders in the same way.
- Column view: If you choose Column view, you move right and left into and out of an item. You can select an item then click its subfolders in the column to its right, or use the left- and right-arrow keys to move around in the columns.
If you simply want to read the contents of a file, you can try double-clicking it; you may or may not have an app able to read that file. If you right-click on a file, you can choose an app to open the file. If that doesn’t work, you can copy the file to your computer.
5. Copy files to your computer
If you want to copy files to your Mac or PC, select the item(s) you want to copy, then click Copy to Mac or Copy to PC in the toolbar at the bottom of the iMazing window. iMazing copies these files from your backup, but makes them available to you outside the encrypted, protected backup.
iMazing presents a standard Save dialog; select a location for the file(s), and click Choose. iMazing saves the file(s).
Unlike Android or Symbian, the iOS is a completely closed smartphone system. Apple doesn’t offer many methods for users to access folders on iPhone. It’s not friendly for users who want to find where exactly the file is. In fact, you could only use iTunes to manage the files on iPhone. But, I think you have already met some iTunes music syncing problems. This kind of limitation has protected the system, but it also caused some troubles.

In this article we will guide you to access iPhone File System easily. You will get a lot of advantages once you jailbroken your device. People who jailbroke their device, they know how useful it is.
① Note: This way applies to jailbroken iDevices.
Step 1 : In the first instance, there is a little bit of maintenance needed to make this possible. On your jailbroken device, launch Cydia and install the Filza File Manager.
Step 2 : Within Filza, you will now need to head into the app’s Settings/Preferences. You can achieve this by tapping on the little cog icon on the bottom navigation bar.
Step 3 : When in Filza’s settings, you will now need to make sure that the WebDAV server functionality is activated. You can find this in Settings under the Enable WebDAV server cell with an On/Off toggle next to it. Turn this into the On position so it is green.
Step 4 : Now with WebDAV activated, you can use your Mac or PC to connect to the device via a web browser and happily browse through all of the iPhone’s file system. You will simply need the IP address of the device in question to access it, which you can also find from Preferences panel of Filza.
For the sake of security and actually maintaining the integrity of the device and information stored within, it is probably a wise idea to go back into settings and turn off the WebDAV server when it isn’t required or access isn’t needed.
② Please follow this method which applies to both jailbroken and unjailbroken iDevices.
Step 1 : Install the lastest 3uTools on your PC.
Step 2 : Connect your iDevice to your PC with the cable. Click iDevice → Files, then you can access the File System. You can change a lot of things like device tools, customize and more functionalities in your iDevice which apple does not provide. Click here to get the detailed tutorial.

Each new version of iOS and new release of Apple hardware can result in apps being left behind, and no longer working on recent devices. In particular, there are some common causes for this:
- App developers can withdraw apps from the App Store at any time
- 32-bit apps ran on most Apple devices up to iOS 11, but required a 64-bit version from iOS 12 onwards
- The iPhone 5C cannot run versions of iOS newer than 10.3.3, and some apps require a new version
- Users may switch from an iPhone to an iPad and vice versa
So what do you do if your data was on one of these apps and you want access to it? There are two approaches for getting files from discontinued apps: using “File Sharing” to access directly on the iOS device, and by rootling through an iOS backup.
Use File Sharing to examine files on an iOS device
Not every app supports File Sharing, but app developers who want to provide their users with easier access to their data tend to enable it.
How to access files from iOS apps with File Sharing:
- Load iTunes (or Finder on iOS 10.15+) and connect your iOS device.
- Navigate to your device within the interface. (You’ll see an image of the device in the top-left.)
- Click File Sharing .
- Choose the app you want to get files from.
- Select the files you want to extract and click Save .
iTunes’ File Sharing interface
If the app in question has a lot of files, it’s easier to export them all and sort through them on your computer, rather than through this interface.
The File Sharing interface doesn’t show files from every app on your device: only the apps that support File Sharing. If the app you need doesn’t show files here, there’s another option: looking at a backup.
Access files from discontinued apps using an iOS backup
By browsing through an iPhone or iPad’s backup, users are able to see all of the files that an iOS app includes.
if you don’t already have one.
- Download and run iPhone Backup Extractor; it’ll automatically find and display your backups.
- Select your backup on the left-hand side of the app, and choose App view to get a list of all apps.
- Select the app in question from the list of apps, and click Extract all .
That will automatically recover all of an app’s files from your backup and save them on your computer where you can examine them at your leisure.

Nowadays we use iPhone every day, and sorts of files will be created on the iPhone. It’s not very convenient to manage these files on iPhone, so some iPhone users may want to access their iPhone files on the PC. If you are also seeking the methods, this article will offer you three best ways to do it.
Way 1. Use Syncios Mobile Manager to Access iPhone Files on PC
If you are neither an iTunes user nor an iCloud user, nor there are some iPhone files you can’t access on PC via iTunes and iCloud, Syncios Mobile Manager is definitely the best tool for you. It can allow you to access almost every iPhone file including music, photos, messages, videos, and the folder files on your PC and to transfer them between your iPhone and the PC.
What Syncios Mobile Manager can do:
- Selectively backup and restore contacts, messages, call log, music, video, photo, apps, eBook and more.
- Import music, photos, videos, files from computer to mobile phone.
- Manage iOS devices/Android music, edit song details and deduplicate tracks.
- Preview and export SMS, Call History & Contacts to readable format on computer.
- Handy Toolkit: audio & video converter, ringtone maker, etc.
How to access iPhone files using Syncios Mobile Manager:
Step 1 Launch Syncios Toolkit and click on “Mobile Manager” to run Syncios Mobile Manager.
Step 2 Connect your iPhone to the PC with a USB cable. Make sure that there is no problem with the USB cable or else it will cause Syncios to fail to detect the iPhone. (For more solutions to solve different undetected iPhone problems, please see this guide.)
Step 3 Click on “File” from the top and all your iPhone files will be displayed in the main interface. You can double click on one of the files to see the items under it. Or choose the file you want to operate with a single click.
There are five options you can operate with your files on the PC: “Add”, “Export”, “New”, “Delete”, “Refresh”. “Add” means import a file to your iPhone from your PC directly, while “Export” means the opposite. You can create a new folder on your iPhone by clicking on the “New” button, or delete the chosen folders by clicking on the “Delete” button. If there is no change after the operation, click on “Refresh” to check whether the changes have been made successfully or not.
Step 4 Access iPhone apps and app files on PC.
Click on “Apps” in the top menu bar to see the apps you have installed on your iPhone. You can add apps from the PC to your iPhone or uninstall them. When you move the cursor to the app, there will be a little folder icon on the right. You can click on it to preview the app documents and operate them on your PC, too.
Note: Whether you can see or transfer the app file depends on the app itself share files or not.
Step 5 Access iPhone music on PC.
Choose “Music” from the top, you can see the categories such as “Music”, “Ringtones”, “Podcasts”, “Audiobooks”, “Voice Memo”, etc. Besides the normal operation like export and delete, it can provide you the function of de-duplication, which can save you a lot of trouble.
Step 6 Access iPhone photos on PC.
Choose the “Photos” option, the albums will be displayed. You can transfer the whole album or double click one of the albums to see the photos under it and selectively operate the photos.
Way 2. Access iPhone Files on PC through iTunes
iTunes also supports access to iPhone files, but besides those normal data like music and videos, it can only access some app documents. If you want to access the app document through iTunes, you can follow the steps below.
Step 1 Download the latest iTunes in Microsoft Store or from its official website on your PC. Launch it and connect your iPhone to your PC.
Step 2 If the connection succeeds, a little phone icon will be shown in the upper left corner next to “Music”. It represents your device connected to the PC. Click on it to continue.
Step 3 Click on “File Sharing” > app > the file you want to see > “Save” > “Select Folder”. Once the file is saved on the folder, you can open the folder on your PC to see it. Like Syncios Mobile Manager, iTunes can access the app file under the precondition that the app itself shares files.
Way 3. Access iPhone Files on PC with iCloud
Besides Syncios Mobile Manager and iTunes, iPhone users can also access files on PC with iCloud. This method is more convenient for those who have the habit to sync data to iCloud than those who are the first users of iCloud.
Step 1 Sync the file you want to access to iCloud.
Unlock your iPhone and tap Settings > your Apple ID > iCloud > switch the button of the type of file you want to access on (here we take “Photos” as an example). Then wait for it to sync the data to iCloud.
Step 2 Navigate to the iCloud website on your PC, and click the icon that corresponds to the type of file you have synced just now. Here we click “Photos” to continue.
Step 3 Choose the photos you want to operate and move the cursor to the icons in the upper right corner. You can click on these icons to upload photos from your PC to your iPhone or download them to your PC; add photos to an album; share photos by email or copying link; delete photos.
With the three best ways shared in this article, you can easily access your iPhone files on the PC. ITunes and iCloud both have some limitations in the types of files they supported, while Syncios Mobile Manager allows you to access almost every iPhone file on your PC. Relatively speaking, Syncios Mobile Manager is a better choice than the other two. So don’t miss this good tool, you can download it now!

If you’ve downloaded files to your iPhone or iPad, accessing them might be confusing compared to a Mac or PC. There’s a special folder where iOS and iPadOS store downloads, and you can find it via the Files app.
First, locate the Files app on your iPhone or iPad. The quickest way to do this is with Spotlight Search. Swipe one finger downward from the middle of the Home screen, and then type “Files.” Tap “Files” in the search results.
Tap “Browse” at the bottom, and then tap “On My iPhone” or “On My iPad” depending on which device you’re 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.
You’ll then see a list of folders that, again, will vary depending on which apps you have installed. Generally, most people save files to the “Downloads” folder, so tap it.
You’ll see a list of all the files you’ve downloaded. During the download process, you can save a file to a folder other than “Downloads.” If you don’t see the file you’re looking for, tap the Back arrow at the upper left, and then tap another folder.
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.
When you’re done, just exit the Files app. The next time you open Files, the file you’re looking for will be right where you left it.
