Did you know that the Mail app in iOS has convenient features for finding the emails you want? That’s right, the native email client on iPhone and iPad allows you to find the desired email in a matter of seconds. However, this function is not conspicuous, since it is invoked by gestures, and not by pressing a button.
In the Mail application on iPhone and iPad, you can easily find the letter you want by any word, name or term, by searching both among all received letters and in specific mailboxes.

How to find the required E-mail message in the Mail application on an iOS device
Need to find a specific letter in your mailbox, but don’t have the time or inclination to shove through all its contents? Use the hidden search function. How to do it:
1. Open the Mail app on your iPhone or iPad, select the desired mailbox or open a folder All incoming…
2. In Inbox, swipe down on the letter or drag the letter down.
A hidden search bar will open.
3. Tap the field to enter a keyword to search for.
4. Enter a word, name, email address, term, phrase or date in the search field.
5. All matching search results will open in a separate list.
The search feature in iOS is very fast, but factors such as the health of your device and the reliability of your internet connection can affect how quickly it works. By default, the search is carried out among all incoming letters, but if you have several mailboxes or you have added additional accounts in the Mail application on your device, you can open these mailboxes and search for the desired letter there.
It’s worth noting that the search bar in the mail client on iPhone and iPad is invoked with the same gesture as Spotlight and the web search on the home screen, as well as searches in test messages, reminders, settings and notes. However, do not jump to conclusions, assuming that the “pull down” gesture is universal. Not everything in iOS can be found by pulling the screen down with your fingers. For example, to search a web page in Safari, you click the Share button, and to search for an image in the Photos app, click the magnifying glass.
