Craig Federighi, Apple's SVP for software engineering, has spent some time praising the benefits of a download manager for Safari on stage. So far, however, little has been said about this revised approach to file management. Not everyone will find it useful immediately, but the change should definitely be useful to people who are trying to use a device like the iPad Pro as the primary device.
