We know that all of the iPhone users out there will be loving the ease and simplicity of using iOS. However, we all agree that there are some drawbacks of using an iPhone. For example, you can not easily share files from an iPhone or iOS device to Android.
This is one example and there are many such nuances which are helpful from a security standpoint. Also, we have come across a recent drawback where you cannot easily unzip a zipped file on iOS.
However, we have a very easy fix for that now. Thus, if you are dealing with plenty of zip files and use an iPhone than you must pay attention to this article. Dr. Drang who is an author of Mac blog “Now it’s all this ” has created a custom shortcut for iOS.
This custom shortcut lets you easily unzip files on an iPhone. Without talking any further, let’s get into action. This iOS shortcut is called “Unzip to iCloud” which unzips the files to your iCloud or Dropbox account.
Now, whenever someone sends you a zip file or you come across one, it will be simple for you to see the content. For unzipping the files on your device, just pull up the iOS share sheet from the bottom. From there, select the Unzip to iCloud option and you are done.
Although it says that the files will be unzipped to iCloud, you can customize the location where it will be unzipped everytime you use the shortcut.
Also, if you are fine with unzipping to your iCloud than that is not an issue at all. However, most of the iOS users will have limited iCloud storage so it will be better to store the files locally. There may be a possibility that the shortcut doesn’t work for the first time as stated even by its developer so keep trying the shortcut until it eventually works.
