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...

Woah, I did not know about that email trick. Thanks!

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.

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.
