This post will walk you through modifying the email previews on the new iPhone’s built-in email application. Read on to learn how to access and manage email previews on the Apple iPhone SE 2020 Mail app.

iOS 13 Mail App Previews

By default, the Mail app displays two lines of text for every email in your mailbox lists or inbox. Nonetheless, you can configure the app to view more lines of text. Doing so will let you preview an email content even without opening or showing the entire email itself.

The number of preview lines allows you to select between more text per message or squeezing in more messages.

In iOS 13 devices, email previews in the Mail app can be previewed in up to five lines. If you’re wondering how to configure these settings on your iPhone SE 2020, then feel free to use this demo as a personal reference.

Here’s how to modify the Mail app’s email previews on the recently rolled out iOS smartphone.
