Does <input type="file"> work on native ios & android apps?

From the research i’ve done its conflicting.

I just want to know if <input type="file"> will allow users to select files on android and iOS native apps?

How would I collect the image or file they choose? Would I have to use the file plugin to grab it from the device or would it already be in binary/base64 format

Thanks

Yes, although the locations are more limited on iOS.

You get a File object just as you would anywhere else.
