In this tutorial, we will show you how to see your downloads on iPhone. Whether you’re looking for a file you recently downloaded or want to check the progress of an ongoing download, the steps below will guide you through the process.

Method 1: Using the Files App

If you have iOS 11 or later installed on your iPhone, you can use the built-in Files app to access and manage your downloads.

  1. Step 1: Locate the Files app on your home screen and tap to open it.
  2. Step 2: On the Browse tab, you’ll see a list of locations. Tap on “Browse” if it’s not already selected.

    You can also choose “Recents” to see files you’ve recently accessed.

  3. Step 3: Scroll down until you find the section labeled “Locations” and tap on “Downloads”.
  4. Step 4: Here, you’ll find all of your downloaded files. You can tap on any file to view or manage it.

Method 2: Using Safari

If you downloaded a file using Safari, follow these steps to find it:

  1. Step 1: Open Safari on your iPhone.
  2. Step 2: Tap on the bookmarks icon at the bottom of the screen (it looks like an open book).
  3. Step 3: Switch to the “History” tab by tapping on its icon in the lower-left corner (it looks like a clock).
  4. Step 4: At the top of the History screen, you’ll see a search bar. Type “Downloads” and Safari will filter the list to show only your downloaded files.
  5. Step 5: Tap on any file to open it or tap and hold to access additional options such as sharing or deleting the file.

Method 3: Using Third-Party Apps

If you prefer using third-party apps for managing your downloads, there are several options available on the App Store. These apps often provide additional features and functionality beyond what is offered by the built-in Files app or Safari.

  • Documents by Readdle: With this app, you can download files, manage documents, and even browse the web.
  • Files – File Manager & Browser: This app offers a user-friendly interface for managing your files and downloads.

Simply search for these apps on the App Store, download and install them, then follow their respective instructions to access and view your downloads.

In Conclusion

No matter how you choose to manage your downloads on iPhone, there are various methods available that cater to different preferences. Whether you use the built-in Files app, Safari’s history feature, or third-party apps like iDownloader or Documents by Readdle, you can easily keep track of and access your downloaded files with just a few taps.
