Running a playground using Xcode 8.2.1 on macOS 10.12.3 your code returns true and the isDir value is also true.

Are you sure the directory “files” exists on your macOS test environment?

let filename = ""
let checkfile = FileManager.default
var isDir : ObjCBool = false

if checkfile.fileExists(atPath: "."+filename, isDirectory: &isDir) {
    print("true, directory = \(isDir)")
} else {

results in this output: "true, directory = true”
