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.

How to remove Movies, Music, Photos, Videos and Apps from iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

Removing files from iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is not really difficult, but I have seen many people asking on forums and social media. So we will take you through the steps that can help you do that.
Note : You can’t undo deletion of Music, Apps and Videos (from Videos app). Apps need to be reinstalled once deleted. You can bring back Music and Videos syncing with iTunes again. Photos and videos under Photos app can be recovered from Recently Deleted Folder.

How to Remove Apps from iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

  • Press and hold any app icon (don’t press harder if using 3D touch compatible device, a simple press and hold will do)
  • Now all the apps icon will start shaking, and you will see a small cross icon on the left top corner of each app
  • Tap on the cross, and tap Delete to confirm that you want to remove the app
Note : You can’t remove stock or preloaded apps from the device. However, you can learn a trick to hide stock apps from iPhone, but all those apps will appear back when you restart the device.

How to Delete Music, Songs or MP3 file from iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

iOS do need iTunes to sync music files with iPhone, but there is no need to connect the device to a computer if you want to delete them. Follow the steps below;
  • Launch Music App on your device
  • 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
Delete Video iOS

How to delete Photos and Videos from iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch (Photos App)

  • Launch Photos app on device
  • Tap on Camera Roll or any other folder to select photos/videos to delete
  • Tap Select, and select those photos and videos by tapping on them. All the selected items will have tick mark on them
  • Now tap on Delete icon, and the tap on Delete — Selected Photos
Note : If you have deleted any photos or videos by mistake, go back and tap on Recently Deleted. Now you can select and recover deleted photos. Those will go to the same folder/album where they belong.

5 Things You Need to Know About the iPhone SE

The rumour mill was right — Apple did indeed unveil a smaller iPhone 5s-like smartphone at their march media event. With the number of information leaks surrounding new Apple products, we hardly get any surprises any more.
That doesn’t mean the iPhone SE is a boring, cut-price iPhone 5c refresh though. If you expected Apple to unveil a cheap, underpowered smartphone, then you might be surprised at what this brand new 4″ model can do.

1. It’s the “iPhone SE” — Not “5SE”

Leading up to the event (and in many reports afterwards) Apple’s new smartphone was referred to as the 5SE, purely down to the fact that it somewhat resembles the iPhone 5 and 5s.
This led many to speculate that the iPhone would be a cheaper, less-powerful device aimed at the budget market. The reality is quite different.
Form factor aside, Apple’s newest smartphone has little in common with the iPhone 5 or 5s. Despite maintaining the same size, thickness (7.6mm), and adding a gram to the weight (113g), it’s twice as fast as a 5s in terms of processing power, with a graphics chip that’s three-times faster to boot.
The A9 chip inside the iPhone SE is the same one that’s in Apple’s flagship iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, which makes it a powerful smartphone for those who like things in small packages. If you’ve been longing for a pocket-sized iPhone since Apple adopted 4.7″ and larger displays, the iPhone SE might be just what you’re looking for.

2. It’s a Proper iPhone

A slap-dash iPhone 5C replacement this is not — from the chassis, right down to the innards. Internally, it’s identical to an iPhone 6s, including the much-needed 2GB of RAM I raved about in my review. This vastly improves the multi-tasking performance, allowing you to switch between more apps and Safari tabs without things falling out of memory.
Unlike Apple’s last 4″ model, the iPhone SE is “crafted from bead-blasted aluminium” which might be marketing speak, but sure beats a plastic body wrapped around a few recycled iPhone 5 parts.
Camera performance is similarly on-par with the iPhone 6s, offering 12MP photos and the ability to shoot 4K video. You can capture Live Photos just like the iPhone 6s, it has a True Tone flash for balancing skin tones, and there’s slow-motion video support that offers 1080p at 120fps or 720p at 240fps.
The iPhone SE doesn’t have the excellent 5MP front-facing FaceTime HD camera seen on the iPhone 6s, but it does use Retina Flash to brighten your selfies using the 4″ display. iPhone mainstays like a TouchID fingerprint scanner and Apple Pay are included too.
In terms of battery life, the SE is quoted by Apple to have comparable talk time to the larger iPhone 6s (at 14 hours), which is interesting considering how much the iPhone 6 improved over its smaller predecessor as a result of the new chassis allowing for a larger lithium-ion cell. Let’s hope Apple can carry those improvements over to the iPhone 7.

3. There’s No 3D Touch

While there are plenty of comparisons with the iPhone 6s to be made, one of theiPhone’s most desirable features hasn’t made it to the iPhone SE. 3D Touch uses pressure-sensitive touchscreen technology that allows for new input commands by squeezing the screen harder than you normally would.
This lets you get to various menu items faster and do other neat things like preview links in messages or addresses in Maps. It really changes the way you use your iPhone once you get used to it, and the technology has been used to great effect in the Apple Watch and OS X thanks to newer MacBook trackpads and the Magic Trackpad 2.
This omission is unsurprising but still disappointing. It might not be a huge drawback — after all, the phone still packs a mighty punch in terms of internal hardware — but it might put you off if you’re after the latest and greatest Apple technologies in a smaller package.

4. You Have Two Storage Options

Perhaps the achilles heel of the iPhone SE (assuming you can get over the lack of 3D Touch) is the fact that the phone is limited to two capacities: 16 and 64GB.
Don’t expect to be making heavy use of space-consuming features like Live Photos and 4K video with only 16GB of storage. Of course, maybe you just want a current iPhone that’s a bit smaller and a bit cheaper, with hardware that’ll last you a good few years. Enter iPhone SE.
64GB is much more like it, but if you have any serious space demands, only the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus come with an option for 128GB of storage. If you want a powerful, small phone with a great camera and a bucketload of storage then you have two choices — pay more for the flagship model, or make do with 64GB.

5. It’s Not Cheap

But are you really surprised? Apple doesn’t make cheap iPhones, because Apple doesn’t make cheap anything. When the iPhone 5C was first rumoured, the Internet was awash with talk about a “cheap” iPhone, only for the device to launch at $349 for the 16GB model.
Considering the underpowered nature of the 5C, the iPhone SE seems fairly well-priced. But that doesn’t mean it’s cheap by any standards.
You’ll pay $399 for the 16GB version and $499 for a 64GB model, compared with the iPhone 6s which starts at $649. You can also choose carrier financing, which in the US starts at $13.30 a month for the base model, compared to the iPhone 6s at $21.64 per month.
Despite not being a budget iPhone, the new model stacks up well compared to the iPhone 5c, which was a noticeable step down from the flagship model of the time (the iPhone 5s) and featured a previous-generation A6 processor, inferior camera, and no TouchID.

Should You Buy an iPhone SE?

The iPhone SE will undoubtedly appeal to a lot of people, notably those who have been yearning for a return to the 4″ screen size for whom the 4.7″ models feel too big.
If you want a smaller iPhone that’s powerful, and you’re not bothered about a lack of 3D Touch or 128GB storage option, now might be a good time to pick up an iPhone SE. If you like the latest and greatest gadgets, keep in mind that Apple will be announcing the iPhone 7 in September.
If you like your iPhones with larger screens, want the very latest features right now, have big storage demands, or you absolutely need the best camera that Apple has to offer (that’ll be the iPhone 6s Plus), then the iPhone SE probably isn’t for you.
