However, Apple has slowly closed the gap, and even if there is still no user-accessible file system on iOS, it is now easier than ever to save an email attachment.

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not perfect quite yet.

In this post, we’ll show you how to save attachments from emails received via the Mail app on iPhone or iPad…. Read the rest of this post here
