How to Make iPhone Mail Load Faster

Get to your inbox and important messages faster

What to Know

  • Go to Settings > Mail > Preview. Select None.
  • Now Mail will only show the recipients and subject lines of new messages; no need to load additional, time-consuming data.

If you want to load your most recent iPhone Mail messages quickly, the iPhone includes ways to make mail load faster and save you time. These settings show only senders and subject lines with no message body previews. Instructions apply to iPhones with iOS 12 or later.

Now, you'll only see the recipients and subject lines in your Mail inboxes, and your phone won't have to load parts of the messages.

Earlier versions of iOS let you limit the number of messages Mail would load at a time, but this feature is no longer available.
