How to Make iPhone Mail Load Faster

Get to your inbox and important messages faster

What to Know

  • To remove message previews and load Mail faster, open Settings > Mail > Preview, select None.
  • Older versions of iOS allow message loading limits in Mail, but not iOS 12 and above.

This article explains how you can make the Mail app load faster on an iPhone using iOS 12 or later. These settings show only senders and subject lines with no message body previews.

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.
