    i saw it in the WWDC demo, but not in the final release. Any idea? I am on iPad Air 2. Is it only available in iPad Pro?

    It’s hidden by default, but you can easily “enable” it by saving anything into Files. For example, open any image in Safari, click on the command icon at the bottom of the screen and ask it to save it to Files. Once it is done, on my iPhone/iPad section will pop up.

    Thanks.

    That's very weird. It should be enabled by default though... Maybe Apple doesn't handle backup of the files saved on iPad.

    I think they do it to encourage people to use iCloud more, as locally stored files are not synchronised between devices?
