Before iOS 6, you could send photos or videos to an email exclusively via Photos app. And it was quite a pain when one was writing an email and an idea pops up in his mind to attach a photo or a video. One had to copy the email content, head over to Photos app, select maximum 5 photos (such a stupid limitation), tap on send over email and then paste your email content back. Luckily for all Apple users, iOS 6 came up with an option to insert photos or videos directly from the New Message window in Mail app (finally!).

This is a more intuitive way to send media to an email. At the end of the day that’s what iOS about – simpleness and intuitiveness. See how to attach photos or videos in iOS 6 down below:

  1. Head over to the iOS 6 Mail app.
  2. Tap on the compose button in the bottom-right corner of the screen. 
  3. In the New Message window, tap anywhere in the mail content. At this step, the options bar appears.
  4. Tap on the arrow-right to display more options. 
  5. Now select Insert Photo or Video and a window containing all your albums will appear.
  6. Select the photos or videos you want to send an tap on Choose.
  7. Now your media is attached to the mail. 
  8. Happy mailing!
