How to Add and Save Mail Attachments in iOS9 on Your iPhone and iPad

The long wait is over.

Users can now add and save attachments in emails in Apple's iOS9 mobile operating system for iPhones and iPads.

It's a small but important new feature in the latest iOS.

Previously, users could only insert photos and videos.

Adding an attachment is similar to adding a photo.  

Press and hold inside the body of the email.  Click the right triangle to cycle to and then click on "Add Attachment".

By default the iCloud folders will be displayed.

Select a folder and then attach the document.  You can also select "Locations" and add files from other sources such as Google Drive and Dropbox if you have those apps installed.

Saving a file attachment is easy too.  Just tap and hold on a file attachment in an email until the Share option displays.  Swipe to the left until Save Attachment appears.  You can save to the iCloud or other folders.
