    How exactly were you able to do it for any attachment (mainly to copy them, from another email or otherwise)?

    Apple likes simplicity. If you want more freedom, no ones stopping you from switching to Android. They make good phones now and I heard lollipop is good.

    I don't think I am missing the point. I have been using iOS since 2007. People are now used to having touchscreen based smartphones.

    I think the title of this this should have been IOS9 is the worst release yet - It has been a couple of days and I haven't seen that title yet. And going along will be what I want in IOS10.
    I can't believe the fuss people make over ICONs and location. It is what a device does that is important and not the ICON.

    Seems like a lot of people are finding something useful about iOS 9, or simply happy that hopefully more time was spent on fixing up performance, stability, and other issues.

    I'm not that big on customization. I've used Android in the past and while it is nice, it's not necessary. Looking at the wallpaper is nice, but I found that I don't spend much time on the homescreens anyways. It's like the background on my desktop. I have it change with an app but I am rarely ever not in an app that is full screen.

    Default apps and better notification center is what I would like.

    It's not only the customization. There are features on Android that are really cool. Let me give you some examples:
    • On my M9 I can Skype with video and I don't have to be in the app to continue my call. I can go to whatever app I want.
    • Another great feature on the M9 is desktop sharing!! It works very well.
    • When using Facebook Messenger, I can chat from my home screen, no need to go to the app.
    • Background syncing of various apps works in real time. I don't have to think about it..
    • Power saving modes. You can choose what features to disable..
    • Notifications. I love the notification led and the button to clear all notifications at once..
    • Ok Google works from every app or screen I am in. It is really cool.
    • The ability to disable an app update. How many times did we all install an app update, only to find out a little later that it killed the app?
    • Ability to set default apps
    • Using Firefox I can have an Adblocker.
    • Sharing sheets are very powerful. I don't need to worry about having extensions. Everything can be connected to anything. Really cool.
    • Additionally and for the HTC One M9 specific, I love its sound. You have to experience it to believe it.

    It's obvious iOS will never suit your needs. Not sure what the purpose of this thread was other than to profess your love for Android.

    I don't mean to be rude, but if, in you opinion, Android is "all that", then what the hell are you doing with iOS?

    My love for Android? I love my dog, not an OS..
    What am I doing with iOS? I am a big Apple fan, my friends always called me a fanboy. In the last two years I started realizing that Android has become a very good option..I am almost forced to use Android, because I know it suits my needs much better, but I like Apple more and I would like to only use Apple products..I am really heavily invested in the Apple ecosystem..

    Yes. You just select the text before and after the attachment (so the attachment itself is blue), you copy it then paste in another email message.

    How does the attachment appear between text? Generally I just see a file or a few at the end of the email without text that's around.

    This is how it is done :)

    And it appears as inline to the viewer. Whenever you insert it, it just shows up.

    Just tried playing around with it in a few messages, and I was able to do it in some, but not others (the selection would only go to the end of the text but not beyond it lower to where a file was attached). I guess at least it works for some.

    You are right. Sometimes it doesn't work at all. This is when I turn to my Mac desperately :)

    Not after iOS 9 anyway ;)

    There are things I dislike about OS X, and things I dislike about Windows 7, but I still use both almost daily. Windows 8, on the other hand... I absolutely hated. It is just not suited for mouse/keyboard use. It is most definitely built for a touch screen.

    I have not used Windows 10 yet, but I will be upgrading later in the year. I'm curious how it compares to OS X in the areas I find most usable: multiple desktops, and multi-touch gestures. The 3-finger full-screen and desktop switching is just amazing. Scrolling is incredibly smooth. Two-finger "back" and "forward" gestures are perfect. 4-finger pinch for quick access to apps, awesome.

    So even though I don't feel that OS X is the absolute best OS (I don't know if I can honestly pick a best), I really feel that the gestures completely make the experience. That was what sold me on buying MacBook Air when shopping for a new computer 4 years ago (after using Windows since 1995). How does Windows 10 compare in this regard?

    I actually like apples new notes app. One note and Evernote seem like overkill and a confusing mess. I'm sure they are great for some people... But apples new app is great for me... You still have the option to use those apps.

    I would use it to if I were not already using OneNote.

    I get it. I really do. When I got my iPhone 6 and iPad Mini 3, I began to get frustrated by the lack of widgets and a restrictive grid system. I would love more abilities to customize and make my devices more personal. What I value more however is that any change I make to a document, photo, contacts, etc. I know without doubt that because of Apple's tight integration, I can move to a different device and pick up where I left off. I am constantly impressed by Apple's product design (though the iPhone 6 did throw me for a loop). iCloud backups makes upgrading devices so simple, something Android has yet to figure out. All this being said, you will never get the same deep level of customization on iOS that Android offers; it goes against Apple's tried and true mantra of "It Just Works." I have accepted this compromise and iOS 9 has made me fall in love with the platform again. It seems as if Android is a much better fit for you and I think that's great; anytime someone finds a way for technology to improve their lives, it puts a smile on my face. However, you can't use Android, switch to iOS and demand that they both be the same. It's like going to a Mercedes dealership and demanding they give you a car that looks and drives like a Lexus. At the end of the day, Android=extreme customization and a more open platform and Apple= a walled garden with a simple, beautiful and easy to use approach. No amount of disdain or venting will change this fact.

    Well in the context of this thread then I would suggest that those who feel a loss of personal freedom because of a operating system should learn to code. Or shut up, whichever works

    I'm not really sure what that says about those who express their opinion that other's should "shut up" about expressing their opinion.
