    Hello friends,

    I would like to know if there is any File manager app available for access iOS 11.3 system files on iPhone X? My model is 64GB and it is unlocked version.

    I found few file managers like these:


    but I think that require jailbreak which I do not want to. Is there a way out?

    I do not think that there is any way to access system files, as that could jeopardise security. Whether you can as a developer, I have no idea, but again I would think unlikely.

    The main purpose of these file manager apps is to install apps that Apple would not approve of, such as pirated apps.
    It would also be possible to delete necessary files, rendering the device unusable.

    You are compromising iOS security by using such unofficial file manager apps. As I said in my previous post, it's possible to delete or modify necessary system files with apps like this, rendering your device useless.

    IFile, by Darkness Productions, is listed on the app store and seems to be much like File Browser and hence, I assume, will not touch system files, etc. (I have not tried it, although there is a free version listed.)

    I was thinking of the app for jailbroken devices, which can also be sideloaded on non-jailbroken devices. That version would not be subject to any App Store review process.

    I use FileBrowser app by Stratospherix. It allows me to connect via SMB to any attached network computer and transfer files from non-apple systems to my iPhone or vice versa. Also handy substitute for air drop if the destination device is out of range.

    I use Documents by Readdle and iZip Pro. These suit my needs.
