iPhone/iPad tip: A quicker way to get to your email draftsSo, you were composing an email on your iPhone and decided to stop in the middle for some reason—and before you moved on, you tapped the “Save Draft” button so you could finish the message later.

All well and good, but where are your old email drafts when you need them?

Tap and hold the “Compose” button for a list of all your email drafts.

You could try finding them by tapping your way back to a specific mail account and opening the Drafts folder, but that could take some doing—especially if you’re starting from the All Inboxes folder, or if you’re not sure which email account your draft is sitting in.

Well, good news: there’s an easier way to pull up your saved email drafts for all your iPhone/iPad email accounts, and it’s just a “long-press” away.

When you do, a window will slide up with a list of all your mail drafts, across all your accounts.

Just tap a draft to pick up where you left off.

Easy, right?
