For some new iOS users, it would be a little difficult for them to view and manage the saved documents on their iPhone. If you also fail to find documents on iPhone, this article may be helpful for you.

Generally speaking, if you don’t install any PDF reader apps on your iPhone, the PDF documents will be saved to the iBooks app by default. But to manage your saved documents better, you can also download documents reader apps from App store such as Adobe Acrobat reader, Documents by Readdle , or GoodReader. With these apps, you can check all your downloaded documents in one place on your iPhone.
2. Check Apple built-in apps
You can also check saved documents in the two new built-in files manager called Pages and Files. But the two apps have some differences. Pages app only saves some pages files, words files, etc. And it can also store the files saved in iCloud Drive. Compared with Pages, Files app saves almost all the files saved on your iOS device. It connects all your cloud services like iCloud, Onedrive, Google drive etc into one place. What’s more, you can also find the files saved locally in your Keynote, Numbers, or Pages apps under On My [device] option with Files app. With Files app, you can manage all of your documents on iOS device easily.
3. Using Third-party Documents App
Apart from documents reader apps from App store and Apple built-in apps, there are also some other third-party documents apps enable you find documents on iPhone. They are iExplorer – a iOS app (paid); AnyTrans for iOS -a iOS app (paid); iFunBox -a file and app management tool for iOS (paid), etc. Take AnyTrans for iOS as an example, you can find all the files such as Microsoft Word/Excel/PPT files with System File function.
