How to Save a Message as a Draft in iPhone Mail


3–2–1—Time's up!

I have to run now, and I have to hide—my iPhone. It's just that I'm composing an email right now, and I don't want to lose what I have tapped so far.

Fortunately, it's easy (albeit maybe not in immediately obvious a manner) to save an email as a draft in iPhone Mail for later continuation.

Save a Message as a Draft in iPhone Mail

To save a message draft in iPhone Mail:

  • Tap Cancel while composing an email message.
  • Now tap Save Draft (or Save).

To continue composing, go to the Drafts folder and tap the draft or use the "new message" button.
