If you are an iOS User, then you know that iOS doesn’t allow you to do advanced tasks. It just works well with all its functions and if you want to do some extra functions or complete advanced tasks, then probably you will need some extra software.
One problem you may experience when using iOS is when you need to Open a Compressed Zip File and Extract it.
So, in this post, I am going to show you How to Open Zip Files on iPhone or iPad.
How to Open Zip Files on iPhone or iPad
Actually, iOS support Zip Files, but you can only view them in Messages or Mail App. So, you don’t want to install any other app on your device, you can use Messages or Mail to View Zip Files.
Open Zip Files in Mail or Messages
For example, if you have received an Excel Spreadsheet after you single tap the Zip File, tap the Share Button and then select the app you have installed to open Excel Spreadsheet.
Also, using Mail or Messages App, you can even print the file or share it using AirDrop.
So, Mail is a simple solution to Open Zip Files on iPad or iPhone without installing any third-party apps from the app store.
If you would like an advanced way to open, extract and edit Zip Files using iPhone or iPad, then I recommend you the second method down below.
Open Zip Files on iPhone or iPad using WinZip or iZip
When you need to take some extra option on your Zip File or need advanced features, then you must install a third-party app from the app store.
Both are available for Free with basic functions but if you need extra features, you can buy Pro Versions.
Both apps are very similar and free version are enough to help you manage your Zip File on iOS.
Find the Zip File you received in Mail or Cloud Storage. Press the Share Button and then tap on ” Open With ” Option.
After the archive is opened, we can view its content.
If you are a bit confused and need an easy way, you can purchase the full version and log in with your Cloud Account right way and open the Zip directly from inside the WinZip App.
If you have the full version of WinZip, we can access our archive right from the app.
Still, to open the files inside Zip you need extra software because iOS only support images, text, documents, videos, and music.
