Downloading a file using the Dropbox API will give you the raw bytes of the file. If you want to then convert that to Base64, you'll have to do that yourself. Here's an example I found by searching for "ios base64": http://iosdevelopertips.com/core-services/encode-decode-using-base64.html.

That depends on which SDK you're using, but the tutorial for that SDK should show you how to do that. E.g. the "Downloading files" section of https://www.dropbox.com/developers-v1/core/start/ios or the "Try some API requests" section of https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/swift#tutorial.
