iOS Files app support

Formally requesting the GoPro App on iOS devices support native Files integration (instead of the older Photos only integration).

I've seen a few questions related to this, but not directly to the point.

 

In my case, I don't own a computer, but use a latest gen iPad Pro instead. Therefore the GoPro app is my only option to re-frame 360 video from the Max. It seems very stange that we MUST transfer the recorded files via Wifi, when both the GoPro Max and the iPad are USB-C devices.

 

Currently the app only supports choosing media from the Photos app. This is very limiting because as it has been pointed out in many posts, apps like this don't support certain file types or codecs. Having support for the native Files API integration would unlock a ton of mobile workflows.

 

I've tested a few different methods of trying to work around this, and it easy enough to get the all files (including .360 files) onto the device, but the GoPro app does not offer a method of selecting or importing these into it.

 

An alternative to supporting the full Files API would to have a method of the app pulling the files off the camera via cable in the app. At least one of the main 360 competitor apps has a feature like this that allows importing directly from the device via a cable. This makes a mobile workflow much faster and more reliable.

 

I've attached a screenshot of a .360 file on the iPad, and me desperatly trying to get it into the GoPro app.
