Holidays mean overstuffed bellies and stockings. 

But they also mean email inboxes filled with Black Friday deals, shipping confirmations for gifts, and RSVPs for holiday parties.

This throws into stark view one of the most frustrating aspects of checking email on an iPhone’s Mail app — your messages don’t always load very quickly in your inbox. 


I think we all have a name in our heads for this loading icon. Being an impatient person, I think of it as “the circle of death.”

3. Under “Message List” is a setting for “Preview.” Open it.

4. Select “None.” If you’d rather be able to get the gist of a message without opening it at all, you could also set several lines of preview text — but the more lines you set, the longer it will take to load. 


Choose how many lines of preview text you want to see.

Now that you’ll only view recipients and subject lines in your inbox, your iPhone won’t have to take quite so long to load new messages. 


Your inbox will look much more streamlined, in addition to loading new messages faster.
