How To Access iCloud Drive Files From iPhone and iPad

It is clear that there is a major distinction between the iCloud drive and other cloud apps. Even though the iCloud drive perhaps is not as versatile as the OneDrive, Google Drive or the Dropbox, it still has a lot useful features which make it one of a kind. My question here is whether you know how to access all the documents and files that you store in the iCloud drive?
