Where does Safari download on iPhone (iOS)?

In iOS, Safari downloads are stored in the Files app. To access downloaded files from Safari on your iPhone or iPad:

  1. Open the "Files" app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on "Downloads" in the left-hand sidebar. (If you don't see "Downloads," tap on "Browse" in the bottom right corner, then scroll down and tap on "Downloads.")
  3. Here you should see a list of all the files you have downloaded through Safari.

Alternatively, you can also access downloaded files from Safari within the app itself by tapping on the "Downloads" icon in the Safari toolbar (the icon looks like a downward-facing arrow). This will show you a list of your recent downloads, which you can tap on to open or share.
