It was nice to see Google integrate its Drive apps into iOS 11's document-consolidating Files, but it seems they're not done refining. This morning, the search giant updated several of its productivity suite apps for iOS to add two features: Compatibility with iPhone X and drag-and-drop functionality on iPad.

Now, Google's Docs, Slides and Sheets apps extend to fill the iPhone X's full screen (except for the awkward camera tab, of course). The iPad update is far more useful: Now you can use the screen-splitting multi-app feature to drag-and-drop content into Google's apps. That means makes it much easier to add links from your browser or images from your camera roll to existing documents. As MacStories notes, however, transfers aren't always perfect: Google Docs in particular doesn't preserve formatting and will automatically translate to plain text.
