How to Find Downloads on iPhone and Where Are Downloads

Is there a downloads folder on iPhone, just like that on a Mac or Windows computer? And how to find what you’ve downloaded on your iPhone 7?

On a Windows or Mac computer, there is a “Downloads” folder that can store all files that you’ve downloaded, so that you can quickly search and access what you’ve downloaded. But things are different on your iPhone, no matter on iPhone 7/6/6s or older iPhone 5/5s/4/4s. And you may don’t know where the downloaded files stored on your iPhone.

Where are downloads on iPhone?

Different from the way in which PC stores downloaded files, there is no default iPhone download folder where can see all your downloaded files. If you download a file via some app on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 6/6s, you have to choose one app to open, store or share the file.

How to find downloads on iPhone 7, iPhone 6/6s

On your iPhone, some apps will record your download history, and offer you the list to view all your downloads on the app, in this way, you can get your download. However, most of apps don’t have the similar download list feature, and you won’t know where to get the files that you downloaded.

Usually, Photos app stores pictures, Music app stores purchased songs and iBook app stores PDF. In addition, iPhone allows you to store files to iCloud drive or other cloud server like dropbox, so you can check whether you’v saved them there.
