How to save attachments from emails to iCloud Drive?

iCloud-EmailA few years ago, iCloud wasn’t that much popular and it was due to the reasons that it had less to offer and people didn’t use cloud storage back then but now iCloud is used by many of the Apple users due to the fact that it stores your data and storing anything on iCloud Drive is easy.

It just takes a few seconds to save anything from your photos/videos to email attachments. All of this stuff that you store on iCloud Drive remains safe there and you can access it anytime you want to.

Another good thing about iCloud Drive is that you can access iCloud from any device so, you can access these files any time you want to.

Sometimes, we receive very important attachments through emails that we want to save but there is no option to save a file in iOS currently but worry not there is always the option to save that file to iCloud Drive.

In this way, the attachment also remains saved and it won’t consume the storage of your device.

How to save attachments from emails to iCloud Drive?

    1. Open any mailing app on your iOS device. (In my case GMail)
    2. Open the email that has the attachment that you want to save.
    3. Tap on the attachment.
    4. A  new window will open, tap on the Share button at the bottom left corner of the screen.


  1. Tap on Add to iCloud Drive.
  2. Then select iCloud Drive.iCloud-Attachments-2

So, that’s how you save attachments from emails to your iCloud Drive.

This just not works with GMail but it works with other mailing apps like Outlook and the default Apple Mail application.

This method works with the file format of almost every type and you can access these files any time from your iCloud Drive when you are connected to the Internet.
