In a spoiler for what Apple might unveil today at its Worldwide Developers Conference, a placeholder app has appeared for “Files” in the App Store.

There are no details about exactly what the app will offer, but it supports only 64-bit architecture, in line with reports that Apple will ditch support for 32-bit apps.

File management is something many iOS fans have been wanting for years. Adding this capability would help cement Apple’s mobile platform as a serious productivity platform — something Cupertino has been pushing hard with devices like the iPad Pro.

At this year’s WWDC, we’re expecting to see iOS 11, macOS 10.13, watchOS 4 and possibly a tvOS update. Lots of rumors also indicate Apple will debut a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, new MacBooks and a standalone Siri smart speaker to take on the Amazon Echo and Google Home devices.

Apple’s WWDC 2017 keynote kicks off Monday at 10 a.m. Pacific. As usual, Apple will be streaming the event. You can follow all the action here on Cult of Macour WWDC liveblog will serve up info and analysis in real time as Apple unveils its latest, greatest software and hardware.
