Copy iCloud link

Takes any files shared as input or, if none are present, presents a Document Picker to select them manually, then shares those files using iCloud Drive – the resulting URL is copied to the clipboard to be shared with others for easy access.

Shortcut Information

Use this shortcut when you want to share files with someone from your iPhone or iPad – you can make an iCloud.com link which they can tap to access your file directly, no external syncing service required.

This feature is possible from the Share menu inside the Files app, but generally isn’t known to be readily available – this shortcut can help break your Dropbox habit, for example.

Pro-tip: Pass files from Get My Shortcuts into Get Link to File to batch-generate and share iCloud links for your shortcuts!
