How to enable/disable iCloud drive in iOS 9

Within iOS 9 Apple introduced a new standalone iCloud drive app. This application provides you with the same file picker interface that you see when accessing iCloud Drive from within other apps. The nice thing about having a native iCloud Drive app is that you can now access stored files, share them, and delete them, without relying on another app to act as a go-between.
