    I am accustomed to using Google Drive for cloud storage of my Excel files. In Android I download the files from Drive, they open in Microsoft Excel, I save file in phone storage, mod the file, save to phone storage w new filename, then upload the file back to Google Drive. Can I do that on an iPhone without jumping through weird extra hoops? I really like the new XS Max but want to be sure I can use it for work as I use Android.

    The Google Drive app works the same as on Android.
    If you have Excel app installed, the only thing you have to do is locate the file in Google Drive and it will open it in Excel app.

    Forget about that whole ‘file management’ thing.
