Gmail iOS Users Can Now Upload Attachments From The Apple Files App

Google’s mailing service, Gmail rolls out a new feature for iOS users to easily upload attachments with Apple’s Files app. The new update is currently only available for people using iOS-powered devices running G Suite.


In a Tweet on 12th February 2020, Gmail announced its latest feature for Apple devices. It had posted:



This improvement means that people using Apple devices and running Google’s email service can send files easily. While Android users using Files Go powered by Google have been enjoying this, iOS users will be joining the ranks.


This means that after everyone gets the feature update, there is no need to interrupt streams of thought just to add an attachment to an email. Also, it implies that users can synch files from iCloud and Apple Files seamlessly.

It further indicated that all end users of the app can access this feature. There is no need to install any other software to use this as its post stated:


“This feature will be available by default. In the Gmail iOS app, when composing or replying to an email, click the attachment icon and scroll to the “Attachments” section. Then select the folder icon to select an attachment from the Files app.”


This feature is called the Files app integration. Users while appreciating the update also mentioned the fact that Gmail is yet to launch a dark mode as many services already offer.


It will take about 15 days for it to get to all iOS Gmail users.
