On my Android Pixel 3, I was able to save a specific file from Google Sheets to my home screen.
I can then click that bookmark, and it opens the Sheets app directly to that file.
How can I accomplish the same thing on iPhone 6S?

This can be achieved with a single action Shortcut that is saved to the Home Screen. Following are the very simple steps to create this action.
1. Create a new Shortcut and name it appropriately (i.e. “Open Foo.bar”)
2. From the Documents Category, select the action Open File
3. Add the File and (optional) App selections. Within the Action definition, there will be two fields:
For this example, I am opening an Excel Spreadsheet (closest to Google Sheets; I don’t use Google products). Here I specify the file “AMEX Pay With Points Analysis.xls” and the app to open it in, Excel (though it would work with the “Default App”).
4. Save this shortcut to the Home Screen.
When you open this from the Home Screen, it will launch Excel with the file loaded.
5. Duplicate this Shortcut for every file you want on your Home Screen.
