If you have lots of different documents stored in Koofr and you want to manage them on your Apple device you've come to the right place. Today we are tackling the challenge of setting up the WebDAV connection to Koofr on your Apple mobile devices - iPhones and iPads, to use it for document management. And while the iOS Files app does not support WebDAV connections, you can still use WebDAV protocol with Koofr on your Apple mobile devices with Pages, Numbers and Keynote apps. But first things first.

This will give you the option to create and edit a document on your phone and save it directly to the selected location in Koofr with the help of WebDAV. Meaning you can also work in real-time on documents that are stored in Koofr or copy them to your Apple device and work on them there.
