    I created a folder on my iCloud Drive and would like to access that folder on my iPhone. But I can't figure out how to do so.

    I am brand new to this iPhone so I apologize if this is a stupid question and the answer is right there in front of me.

    I think those are set up in the apps that use iCloud Drive. I decided not to fool with it. We get just 5 free gb of iCloud back up storage. If it's used to store things, that 5 gb will run out quick. For cloud storage of photos, videos, documents and other files, I use Box, Dropbox and OneDrive. Those are easier to use than iCloud Drive. I'm just using iCloud to back up my phone like I always have. No storage with iCloud Drive. It takes too much space.

    You can't. There is no app to allow you to view the content. You can access it via iCloud.com or iCloud Control Panel in Windows.

    You can via apps that have been properly updated to access iCloud Drive.

    I've seen apps that will access the folders that are already created. A little bummed I can't use it like I have used Dropbox. Seems like a feature with so much potential but they are holding it back.

    GoodReader may be what you are looking for. It lets you access your folders/open files from iCloud. It also lets you export those files to another app on your phone. It's $2.99 on the App Store.

    Goodreader no longer does this after last update. They claim Apple iCloud usage policy prohibits apps from enabling folder management on iOS devices. :-(((
