Quick iOS Tips: Mass Selecting Photos, Pausing Your Email

Though most of us use our iOS devices on a daily basis, there are so many hidden tips and features built in that some of them go under the radar. We’ve been collecting hidden iOS secrets and creating quick videos around them, giving our readers a second look at essential time-saving features that may have been missed.

Our most recent videos cover two handy tips for Photos and Mail, demonstrating features that make it easier to select photos and pause to access the rest of a mailbox when composing an email. Check them out below:




For more of our quick tip videos, how tos, software overviews, and rumor coverage, make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel.

It is so great we have been given a flat operating system without any clues how to use it, so we get to watch youtube videos instead of just looking at the UI and understand how it works...

I couldn't get the photo select to work with iOS 8 but the email trick worked. All this time I was saving as a draft. Nice.

I'm pretty sure a lot of these tips show up in the keynote presentations, often with Craig Federighi demonstrating.


That's exactly how I knew about them, but it's great that more people are finding out about these tips! It just shows how feature rich iOS really is.

Apple's iOS Tips app has been giving some good advice lately, too!

Great that MR are publishing them as well - evidently catching additional users.

:eek:All these years I've been canceling an email, but instead saving a draft, going to another message, then re-loading the draft to finish. I've always hated how clunky that was.
This new tip will change my life!
