(Files.app) move file instead of copying?

    I’m using Files.app on my iPhone. To move files between folders, I select a file and click the little folder icon, and is then given the choice of where to move the file.

    However, if the file is in one of Apples own folders, I’m only given the choice of copying the files. For example, I was just trying to move a file from /iCloud Drive/Keynote/, but I can only copy the file.

    I guess I could always go back to the first folder and delete the original file, but that’s one step too much. Is there a way of doing it in 1 step? From an iPhone.

    Nope. This is due to Apple sandbox. To keep us safe and protected /s
