Use iCloud Drive on iPad
Use the Files app to store files in iCloud Drive, which you can access from your other devices as well as your iPad. You can also invite others to view and edit your files—you don’t need to send them copies of the files.
iCloud Drive is built into the Files app on iOS devices (iOS 11 or later). You can also use iCloud Drive on Mac computers (OS X 10.10 or later) and PCs (iCloud for Windows 5 or later or Windows 7 or later). To access iCloud Drive, you must be signed in to iCloud using your Apple ID. Storage limits are subject to your iCloud storage plan.
