    I am going to need to be without internet for a while and want to access PDFs, word, excel, and numbers files. What is the best way of doing this? Will it save my changes even without Internet?

    Thanks

    do you mean you'll be without internet, or internet connection (ie, wifi) ?

    if you'll be without connection then nothing will update. yuo'll need to proceed with all your files stored locally on your device.

    I will be without internet of any sort at an all day event. I just want to make sure that anything I do to a document while offline will be saved and uploaded when I get back to an internet connection?

    should auto update. if it doesn't just give the files you've amended a polite nudge. dropbox always checks and updates my files automatic when i've been offline.

    I think all iCloud files are stored locally then when you reconnect they'll sync to update them all

    Dropbox at least will check and update. I'm assuming iCloud will as well, although I haven't used it personally to know for sure.

    I guess only problem with Dropbox is that you will need select your files to be available offline first before you travel!?

    Is this correct?

    Im guessing iCloud will keep local copy and always accessible??

    Can anybody confirm as im also in similar situation
