Today we’re talking about iCloud Drive and the advent of a filesystem on iOS. We discuss whether the benefits of introducing a filesystem to iOS users is worth the complications that it brings, compare notes on our plans for supporting iCloud Drive, and express a healthy dose of skepticism about Apple’s ability to flawlessly launch a new web service. We consider our long-term ability to charge customers for syncing in this world of free and cheap cloud services, then we close by reading the tea leaves and sharing our opinion of what exactly Apple’s loosening of sandbox restrictions means for the future of iOS.
