iCloud recently gained shared folders, much like Dropbox where anything you put in that folder is automatically synced to that same folder on every collaborator's devices. As long as you're running iOS/iPadOS 13.4 or macOS Catalina 10.15.4 or newer, you can share a folder with anyone else, even if they don't have an Apple device.
But sharing folders is a bit hidden.
Here's how it works.
Find the folder you want to share, then on an iPhone or iPad, tap and hold on a folder and click Share. On a Mac, right-click on the folder to see the sharing options. In iCloud Drive's web app, click the people icon in the toolbar to add collaborators.
In the sharing options, underneath the default avatars and app icons, select the Add People option. There, you can send an invite to anyone via email, iMessage, and any other app on your device.
Or, click the sharing options to set two options:
Now, when someone receives your invitation to share a folder, the link will open in iCloud's website by default, and will let them see the files online if their device isn't up-to-date, or otherwise will let them open the shared folder.
And then it just works. Pretty much like shared folders in Dropbox, anyone with the shared folder can open, edit, and add files to the folder, and they're synced to everyone's devices. It's especially handy for families, where you can share both iCloud storage space across the family and now share specific folders.
