How to share iCloud folders on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

We’ve been waiting for iCloud folder sharing since Apple announced it back in June of 2019. With iOS 13.4 and macOS Catalina 10.15.4, the feature has finally arrived. Now you can invite several other people to a single iCloud folder, where they can access or add files. You can give people permission to make changes to the folder (adding, changing, or deleting files) or give them view-only permission.

Here’s how to get started with shared iCloud folders.

On iPhone or iPad

Open the Files app, and navigate to iCloud Drive.

Don’t tap on the folder you wish to share—that will open the folder. Instead, tap Select in the upper right, then choose the folder you wish to share.

With the folder selected, tap the share button (the box with the arrow coming out of it) in the lower left.

Select Add People (you may need to swipe up to see it).

You’ll be given several options for how you wish to send the invitations: Messages, Mail, Twitter or Facebook DM, and so on. You’ll also have the opportunity to set Share Options.

These options change who has access to the folder (only people you invite, or anyone with the share link) and what they can do with the folder (make changes to the files and subfolders within, or only view files).
