A statement from the Germany-based company said the new version had a new TLS certificate management system, enhanced file management, user functionality and integration options that made for better security.
The app architecture had been overhauled to improve its speed and stability, the company added.
The new app works with the iOS Files app, allowing third-party programs like Microsoft Office to directly access files which are stored in an ownCloud instance.

As far as security goes, the new app offers a summary of TLS certificates which makes it easy to establish their authenticity. If a user allows a TLS certificate with failed validation, this can be reversed and the choice will be stored with a timestamp.
Password managers like 1Password are supported by the new app which is available free on the App Store.
