You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to share a file from Macbook Pro to the iPhone 6s Plus using the iCloud Drive.
First of all, I'm in "Pages" right now.
I will type in "This is a test document". Then, I'll save the file.
I want to save this to a specific folder.
It's going to be the "Pages" folder within my iCloud library.
Now, you can type in the name.
For this tutorial let's name the file "test".
On the left-hand side you will have "iCloud Drive".
Click on it once.
Then, go to "Pages".
Click on the "Pages" folder once.
Now, you can see on the right side of the window that we have our document.
It will show the status of whether it is uploading to the "iCloud". The next step is to make sure the iPhone 6S Plus is set up correctly for iCloud.
Then, go to "Settings" on your iPhone.
From "Settings", scroll down to "iCloud".
Give a single tap on "iCloud".
Then, tap on "iCloud Drive".
We want to make sure that "iCloud Drive" is turned on.
Make sure that "Show on Home Screen" is also turned on.
Then, bo back to the home screen.
It looks like we're still waiting on our 'test' document to upload.
Now, you can see that uploading to "iCloud" is finished.
On the iPhone 6s Plus look for the "iCloud Drive" icon.
This is a blue cloud shape with the white border. Tap on it once.
You will see the "Pages" folder.
Tap on it.
Then, you will see the "test" file we've just created.
Tap on this to open. It will open the preview of the file.
Now, tap on "Download to view".
Once the file downloads, we can zoom in on the text.
You will see the text that we've previously written saying "This is a test document".
