In the finder, when I connect my iPad PRO 2020 (up to date) to my iMac (10.15.6) I can see the folders and files of differents apps, but not the "On my ipad" folder.

Is there a (simple) way to see it (and access it) in the finder or in the terminal ?



As far as I know, you can't see the "On my iPad" folder, however, the easiest way I found was using iCloud or use the app Documents by Readdle


The easiest way I've found is to save or copy the iPad file to your iCloud drive if you have one or to Dropbox which you can get for both Mac and iPad.

There are ways to sync your iPad to your iMac but I have Hign Sierra and I can't use the method. The method is given here.

  • I use the given method (USB) and can't see the "On my ipad" folder.
