    So they both always have the same local media files on them? Instead of having to do this manually ?

    One way is iCloud Drive... Things will be better when iOS 11 hits with Files app.

    Documents by Readdle syncs with many types of servers including SMB.

    DEVONthink doesn't work for me. I have over 140.000 files on an MacMini and I can't get it to sync on my iPad.

    iCloud should be working, I have there about 60Gb of files and documents, keeps a copy on all sides (cloud and all devices).

    Dropbox does the same, but you need to select that you want to store locally and a year ago it wouldn't want to synchronize fast enough for my taste/amount of data.

    Documents by Readdle can do really a lot, dropbox, box, icloud, yandex, FTP, SFTP, all kind of services, but also locals indeed like SMB.
    It is more of a file-manager as well and the advantage is that you can copy files from one service to another (e.g. Dropbox to icloud).
