Before iOS 13, you could file an email into a folder, and in iOS 12 if you did it enough times, the OS learns and suggests the folder it should be filed to Now with iOS13 there's only an archive, and no way of selecting a folder to file it to. How are people doing it on their phone now from the standard mail app? I'm using gmail if it matters.

If you press the reply button you get the option to put the mail into a folder (including a suggested folder if available). It also took me some time to find out how to do this and I think it's actually quite strange that the new mail app only has 2 off-center buttons at the bottom when viewing an email.

A horrible design decision. Anybody know if the buttons were restored in 13.1?

This is so weird. Why would moving to a folder be under reply, makes more sense to put it under archive. Plus why did they have to mush everything into one reply icon. They have so much space in the toolbar at the bottom now! Why don't they use it and why are the buttons not spaced out and centered? The most confusing iOS change ever.

Yup, that design decision of absolutely baffling to me. At first I thought my Mail app was bugged 😜
