Can you access a shared folder on IOS?

I know you can save and load to the extras folder, but is there a method to access another games extras folder, (or another folder shared between games). I have two games, and I'd like to be able to use some of the data generated in the first in the second.

I don't think so, but I also don't think apple allows it. Every app is supposed to be a self-contained sandbox (excluding access through APIs). But as an alternative, you could put a folder on a server and use the web requests blocks to share info between two games.

Hi thechaosengine, I'd thought of that - it's an option, though I'd prefer an offline solution. With ios11 and the new files structure it may be possible.  Or I know I can save to the photo roll - but I'd rather keep the saved images in the game only.
