Encrypted Disk Update for iPhone and iPad Comes with iOS 14
News about the new operating system versions continues to come after Apple’s WWDC20 event last Monday. Many new iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 features not mentioned at the event are revealed in the open beta of these new versions. Again, according to a feature revealed in open beta, encrypted disks can now be displayed in the Files section on the iPhone and iPad.
New features continue to appear in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 open betas released after Apple ‘s WWDC20 event last Monday. Apple is updating the open betas of these new versions step by step from Monday, although it does not mention much about the new Files system in the event, this time with an update to the Files section of the iPhone and iPads.
It is quite natural that Apple does not mention the Files section too much during the event, because everything else remains almost the same except for one important change, but the only important change is that it manages to bring the file management of the iPhone and iPad closer to Mac devices. As of now available for the open beta of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, encrypted disks with the Apple File System (APFS) extension can be accessed from the Files section on iPhone and iPad.
Only disks with APFS extension can be displayed:
According to the beta experiences, the feature will be very simple to use. Users can connect their encrypted discs to their iPhone or iPad using the Lightning cable and open their discs via the Files app. After this process, users will be able to enter the desired password by accessing the disk by touching the encrypted disk listed in the ‘Sidebar’ section of the Files application.
Currently, only disks encrypted with the APFS method are used on iPhones and iPads. To make your disk with an APFS extension , you also need to select the APFS option from the ‘Disk Utility’ section using a Mac . In addition to macOS Big Sur , a new feature is being added to Mac computers. Now, Mac users can transfer their backups created using Time Machine to disks with APFS extensions.
Apple’s WWDC20 event has ended for this year, but the new features included in the announced new operating system versions continue to appear in the open beta of these new versions. You can follow Webtekno to be aware of the features of Apple with its new operating systems.
