How to Open 7Z Files with iZip

Whilst we might be a bit biased towards our own web based solutions here at ezyZip, we do recognize that it might not always be the best option.

If you are dealing with 7Z files frequently or with especially large files, then you're better off installing a dedicated extraction utility. There's various options out there. We like the simplicity of iZip.
  1. Open the App Store and search for iZip. Tap on "Get" to install iZip to your iPad.
    Install iZip
  2. Open iZip and click on "Files". (Alternately try "Document Browser")
    Open Files
  3. Select the 7Z file you wish to open. It will list out the contents of the 7Z archive.
    Open Files
  4. Select the file you wish to extract and scroll down to the bottom and click "Unzip".

  5. Save or share the extracted files.
    Save/Share Files

    Thats all there is to it!

Can I open 7Z files on my iPad without installing any apps?

Certainly! You can use your browser to open and extract 7Z Files.

In the section above, we have outlined step-by-step instructions on how to extract 7Z files using Safari on iPad.

However, if you will be dealing with numerous 7Z files or very large archives, then it makes more sense to use a native 7Z extractor app.

Is it safe to use ezyZip to extract 7Z files on my iPad?

Yes! All ezyZip code is run directly inside your browser. No file data leaves the browser.

You can switch off your wi-fi and it will still work.

Can I view the contents of 7Z file without extracting them on my iPad?

Depends on the file type.

If it's a file type that can be opened inside a browser (e.g. images, videos, text files) then yes. A blue "Preview" button will be enabled for the types of files you can open directly in the browser.

You will be able to see the entire file list without needing to extract the contents.

Are there any limitations or file size restrictions when using ezyZip on iPad?

No, but since ezyZip is a browser based solution, everything needs to be executed in memory. This could potentially result in issues when dealing with very large files, as the browser may run out of memory, leading to performance concerns.

Can I extract password-protected 7Z files using ezyZip on my iPad?

Yes. A password prompt will appear for 7Z files that are encrypted with a password.

Can I do the same on my iPhone?

Sure. Check out our iPhone 7Z extraction guide for step-by-step instructions.
