Apple will roll out its much anticipated iCloud Folder Sharing feature with iOS 13.4 after it was pulled from the main release of iOS 13 and macOS Catalina last year, with Apple at the time saying folder sharing would be postponed until early 2020.
Similar to Dropbox, the new iCloud Folder Sharing tool will allow users to share files with others by right-clicking a folder in iCloud Drive to reveal options to generate a private link to share access to the folder, with the option to send the folder via AirDrop, Messages, Mail, or with people in your contacts.
Additionally, anyone who receives access to the shared folder will be able to add and edit documents/files.
During beta testing, users reported issues with data loss and file corruption, consequently resulting in the feature being pulled. Developers running today’s beta release of macOS Catalina 10.15.4, iPadOS 13.4 and iOS 13.4 will see iCloud Folder Sharing as an option when sharing in iCloud Drive.
