How to print an email in iOS 13 and iPadOS
Some design changes in iOS 13/iPadOS are awesome, but Apple reduced the Mail app to just two basic functions–the trash can and the reply button. We think that’s taking minimalism a bit too far for our taste!
- To print an email, you need to first tap that reply button
- Then you see a bunch of mail app actions, including print as well as reply all, flag, mark as unread, forward, archive message, and so forth
- Once you tap the reply button and choose print, your AirPrint Printer Options dialog appears to select your printer and how many copies you want to print, just like always!
We hope that you were able to locate and use the print feature on your iPhone with this short article. What are some of the other features that you are enjoying on iOS 13 and iPadOS apart from ever-popular ‘Dark mode’?
