It’s never been easy to copy details from one email to another, until now. However, with the arrival of iOS 8, you can now copy details from a previous email when writing a new email.

There are plenty of situations where you’ll find this useful, such as getting hold of important instructions on where to meet someone, or if you simply want to copy a link to send on to someone else.

To switch between emails, swipe down on the new message header when writing a fresh email. This will move the message to the bottom of the screen so you can access your Inbox.
