How to View “Unread” Email Only in Mail on iPhone & iPad

View only Unread eMail messages in iOS Mail
It’s easy to fall behind on email and let unread messages build up over time, but the iOS Mail app offers an excellent solution to this problem by allowing users to enable a hidden optional “Unread” only email message inbox on their device.

Just as it sounds, the Unread message mailbox will display only the unread email messages that are within the Mail app of an iPhone or iPad, letting users greatly improve their email workflow and productivity. This can be in invaluable solution for those of us who are routinely overburdened with tons of emails, as it puts the requiring action unread message right in front of you, ready to be marked as read, responded to, forwarded, trashed, or triaged in another manner.

This tutorial will walk through enabling this incredibly useful mailbox option in the Mail app on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Enable an “Unread” Email Message Inbox in Mail for iOS

  1. Open the Mail app in iOS if you haven’t done so already and go to the primary mailbox screen
  2. Mail icon
  3. Tap on the “Mailboxes” button in the upper left corner
  4. Unread email folder iOS
  5. At the mailboxes screen, tap on “Edit” in the upper right corner
  6. See Unread messages only in Mail for iOS
  7. Locate the “Unread” mailbox and tap on it so that the blue checkbox alongside is checked, then tap on “Done”
  8. Enable Unread message inbox in Mail for iOS
  9. Still in the Mailboxes screen, now tap on “Unread” to open the Unread email only inbox view
  10. View Unread emails only in Mail app for iPhone and iPad
This will open a special email inbox that only shows the unread messages in Mail app on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, making it a very efficient way to manage an unruly inbox and triage unread messages faster.
Mail users can return to their normal “everything” inbox by returning back to the “Mailboxes” view and choosing “All Inboxes” again, or selecting an individual email account, or another mailbox, as desired.
The Mail app in iOS has several other hidden mailbox options, with this Unread inbox and the email attachments inbox being perhaps the two most useful for those aiming to improve their email productivity.
For those users who have a Gmail account, you can use a special inbox sorting trick to show unread message in Gmail in the web client as well, which is equally as useful if you juggle between the iOS Mail app and in a web browser on another machine.
So, rather than hide the unread mail number on the icon, why not enable the unread-only mail inbox and tackle your emails head on? Even if you aren’t overloaded with hundreds of emails and mail messages every day on your iOS device, this can still be a great way to handle Mail on an iPhone or iPad, so give it a try.

How to Add Email Attachments in Mail for iPhone & iPad

Mail app in iOS allows users to easily add any type of file attachment to an email, as long as the attachment in question is coming from an associated iCloud Drive. This means you can add files from Pages, Microsoft Office documents, PDF, PSD, text and rtf files, or just about anything else, directly to an email on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The selected file(s) will behave just like a regular email attachment sent from a desktop email client too. Let’s walk through the steps for how to add attachments to emails in iOS.

This ability requires iCloud Drive in iOS to use as described, which means the files you can attach to the email must be stored on iCloud Drive, either through an app or if you have copied them there manually from a related Mac. You’ll also need to be running a modern version of iOS, anything after the 9.0 release will have this ability. Without iCloud Drive you won’t have access to the file attachment feature, but you can still attach photos and videos to emails as usual.

How to Add Email Attachments to Mail Messages in iOS

This works the same to add attachments to any emails within the Mail app on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:
  1. Open Mail app in iOS and compose a new email as usual (you can also reply to existing emails and attach a file to a reply, or add attachments to forwarded emails too)
  2. Tap and hold in the body section of the email until you see the familiar black pop-up bar with various options for copying, pasting, etc, and tap on the arrow on the far right until you see “Add Attachment”
  3. Add an attachment to email in iOS Mail app
  4. This launches an iCloud Drive browser, so navigate to the file(s) you wish to attach to the email and touch the document or file to “Add” to the email
  5. Selecting a file to attach to email in Mail iOS from iCloud Drive
  6. Fill out the email as usual and send it
  7. Send an email with attachment in Mail for iOS
The chosen file actually attaches to the email, just like it would from a desktop email client. This assumes the attachment is an appropriate size, as a large file sent through Mail will offer an iCloud Mail Drop link when sent from iOS instead.
If you’re on the receiving end of an email attachment in iOS, you can choose to save the attachment to iCloud Drive, or in some cases you can save the attachment to iBooks if it’s a file that can be ready by the program, like a DOC or DOCX file, PDF, or text document.
If you send and receive many email attachments from an iPhone or iPad, you may want to enable an Attachments inbox in Mail for iOS which makes it easy to view only emails with attached files.
This is a pretty easy way to attach files to emails in iOS, though it’s not quite as quick as the drag and drop method for Mail on Mac, where you can simply drag a file onto the Mail icon to compose a message with said file attached to a new email.

  • Select the option whether you want to delete whole album or some certain music one by one
  • Now tap on the icon with three dots, and select Delete
  • Tap on Remove Download. If a music file available for online access only, you can tap Delete from My Music

How to Delete Movies or Videos from Videos App on iOS

Just like Music files, you can’t put Video files to Videos app without iTunes, but you can remove without iTunes following these steps
  • Launch Videos app on your device
  • Tap on Edit
Delete Movie iPhone
  • Tap the cross sign on the video you want to remove
Delete videos iPhone
  • Tap on Delete to confirm

How to Password Lock Notes on iPhone & iPad

Password lock Notes on iPhone and iPad
The latest versions of the Notes app for iOS allow users to password protect particular notes within the app, making it an excellent place to store personal information and private snippets that you’d like to keep away from prying eyes. In addition to password protection, Notes in iOS also allows users to lock and unlock notes with Touch ID as well, so if the iPhone or iPad supports that feature you’ll be able to use a quick unlock access method too.
We’ll run through how to lock notes in iOS, as well as how to unlock and access the note(s) after they have been locked. Notes app supports locking with any version of iOS after 9.0, earlier releases do not have this feature. By no means is this a substitution for using a passcode to lock the iOS device, instead it should be looked at as an additional layer of security to protect extra sensitive data contained on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

How to Lock Notes with Password Protection in iOS

This demonstrates how to apply password lock protection on any note within the Notes app on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:
  1. Open the Notes app in iOS if you haven’t done so already
  2. Tap on the sharing icon in the upper right corner of the note, it looks like a little box with an arrow flying out of it
  3. Tap the sharing icon to start locking a note
  4. In the action menu, find and tap on “Lock Note”
  5. Choose Lock Note in iOS SHaring
  6. Fill out the password and hint that you want to use as the note lock, and optionally but recommended keep “Use Touch ID” enabled” and then tap ‘Done’ *
  7. Fill out password to lock notes with
  8. The note will verify that it has been locked with a “Lock Added” message, you can now lock the note by tapping on the lock icon at the top of the note, or by locking the screen of the device as you would normally
  9. Note has been locked successfully
Once the Notes app has been closed, the device screen has been locked, or the notes have been deliberately locked, any locked notes will remain locked until the proper password has been entered or Touch ID has been used to unlock the protected note(s). And yes, this works to lock any notes at all, whether they’re a standard text note, a drawing or sketch made in Notes app, a checklist, a collection of pictures contained in a note, or whatever else you have kept in the note(s) you want to lock down.
* Be aware that the set password will lock and unlock any of the notes locked within Notes app, each note does not have a separate password. This applies to Touch ID as well.

Unlocking Password Protected Notes in iOS

Want to access and view the contents of a locked note in iOS? Here’s what you’ll want to do:
  1. Open the Notes app and tap on the note that is locked
  2. At the “This note is locked” screen, choose “View Note”
  3. View a locked note
  4. Enter the password for the note to view the contents, or use Touch ID (if applicable)
  5. Use Touch ID or enter a password to view the note
Once you’re finished viewing or editing the note, you can lock it again as usual. You can also remove a lock permanently from a note by returning to the Sharing section, and tapping on “Remove Lock”
A locked note in iOS
Finally, it’s worth pointing out that for iPhone and iPad users that have a Mac as well, as long as the computer is updated to the latest version of OS X and using the same Apple ID, then the locked iCloud notes will be accessible from both devices.
