I'm an iOS developer trying to learn graphic design, currently using the free version of Figma. I just started and so far it's been lots of fun.

My problem is incorporating iOS system elements into my design, i.e. nav bars, status bars etc. I have no wish designing them myself, so I started looking for existing online designs and found many, some are free, like this. So I choose duplicate on the top right corner, and then move to project, and it is added to my project as a separate file.

The problem is that I cannot use the components within that file in another file, where I have my own design. I assume there's a way to do it or there would be no use for all this online libraries.

Yes you can, you need to ensure the components you want to share are created as "components". Then you need to publish your file as a "library" so that other files can reference it.

Let me know if you need me to expand on certain areas.
