iPhone for all it’s goodness has a couple of issues that can be extremely frustrating. And this seems to be the story right from the onset when the very first iPhone was released. Anyone remember that the device back then came with no MMS support and no ability to Copy and Paste? Though eventually regular updates fixed things and we have had a legacy of devices that have pretty much been the ones that have set the standard in mobile world.
However, this doesn’t imply that everything is rose-y in the world of iPhones just yet. There remain glitches and short comings which some of the cheapest Android devices seem to overcome without any fuss. One of the issues that I have personally faced over a period of time being a tech writer is the inability to send more than 5 images as attachments on the iPhone.
In our field of work, we have to take a million screenshots of the device and in order to export them on the website need to mail them first. However, with iPhone that is an issue and most of us would rather just sync it across the photostream and then simply pick it off the desktop once the images have been sync’d.
However, there is a little work around that can be performed where you can attach more than 5 images to your default E-Mail from your device. How do we do that? It is pretty simple to follow. These are the steps you need to keep in mind.
Not just the default E-Mail app, this method can be deployed to send more than 5 images as attachments on any third party E-Mail app
Open the album on your iPhone that you need images from.
Click on Edit on the top right corner of the application and select all the images you want to send via E-Mail.
Click on the share button on the bottom left of the screen and select ‘Copy’ from there.
Next up, you have to simply, open your Mail client, enter in the E-Mail ID of the recipient, and come to the body of the E-Mail.
Long press in the body and the paste option will jump up, click paste and all your images will be posted in the body of your E-Mail.
Simply press the send button and let the mail go away. Job done.
The images will be present in the body of the E-Mail and not as attachments if you use this method
Also, do note that we have use the Mailbox client for this tutorial, the same can be done with either the default mail app or even the likes of sparrow, we did test that to positive effect.
There is no other way we could really find for sending multiple images from an iPhone. However, if you do have a creative way out of this big big drawback, then do let us know in the comments section below.
