KDE Improving File Access For Apple iOS Devices With New KIO AFC
A new KIO worker has been written that supports the Apple File Conduit (AFC) service running on iOS devices. This new KIO worker has already been merged to the kio-extras module that is included as part of KDE Gear releases.
The new AFC code in kio-extras is written against the latest KIO classes for providing the most up-to-date support around file access when iPhone/iPad devices are connected to the KDE system via USB. This worker supports accessing files off the general file-system as well as documents shared via the House Arrest API.
The KDE Gear 22.12 release due out on 8 December had its feature freeze back on 10 November, thus this new Apple File Conduit KIO worker won't be found until KDE Gear 23.04 in April.
More details on this new KIO AFC via this blog post by KDE developer Kai Uwe Broulik.
