    About time! Does it allow attachments only from iCloud Drive? Or are there other cloud services available?

    I don't think that's new. That's been there. It's currently on iOS 8.3. Unless you talking about something totally different.

    No just iCloud as of now, the iCloud document picker pops up. That's really all I needed!

    Even if it is just iCloud Drive stuff. We can work around that.

    If you go deep into the share sheet under "more", you'll find options for Google drive or Dropbox depending on which apps you have downloaded. It's not just limited to icloud drive.

    It's like Apple finally grew some damn sense in figuring out what people want in an email app.

    From what others are saying, you can attach from files in your iCloud drive app, which is basically on your phone.

    because apple doesn't want a common file system
    they would have to allow files be stored within the MAIL app and well that would not work for usability lol

    Apps installed on your phone can have an extension that then makes those files appear in the file picker. I think Dropbox does this along with others. There's no reason afaik that an app couldn't be created that only stored files on the device and then that app had an extension to be included in the file picker.

    So is this an actual attachment or is a link inserted for the recipient to download? Just wanted some clarification since there's other email apps that claim "attachment" but just insert a link for the recipient to download the file from your chosen cloud service.

    It's attaches the actual file. If you want a link to a file in the cloud, you need to share from the respective app.

    Calm down champ, local file storage apps like Transmit are fully integrated into the file picker, so you can easily attach files that are on your phone.
