    This feature seems to be bugged for me when I try to add a server under the files.app, is it just me or is it the same for you guys as well.I would like to add my Synology NAS in there if that's possible.

    It's everyone. It's in the known issues in the release notes. Hopefully next build.

    On another note does Synology not have an app exposed in Files? WD do and it works really well. Also has the added advantage of working out of home without forwarding any ports.

    DS File doesn’t integrate well into files app. Looking forward to SMB support working.

    Ah. Shame. I'm actually surprised how well WD's app works as I had to root and disable or reconfigure half the crappy software running on the NAS itself. Shockingly crippled out of the box.

    Anyway, yep, will be a real boon to have SMB natively. I'll definitely be doing some relative benchmarking when when we get it.

    Synology NAS has full SMB/AFP support out of the box. That's how mine's set up.

    Yes, I know. I’m talking about SMB support coming to the FILES app on iPadOS.

    One Apple enables it I'd be surprised if it doesn't work, my Synology NAS works with any device via SMB.
