    Since having this iPad for just over a year now I’ve been thinking about setting up my emails on it (to help save my phone battery) but do emails use lots of memory? I swear I remember emails taking lots of memory on my old iPhone 4. I have lots of emails in my inbox so will this take a massive chunk of my memory on my iPad?

    I think it depends on the amount of gigs your iPad has. It does take up memory. Maybe you can just delete the emails you don't need along with the junk emails.

    If you mean storage space, yes they do. But not a lot, except the emails with images or videos. They will take more space.

    I get an email every Friday which contains lots of pictures & the odd video sometimes. Want to keep these emails too as there about my favourite jet. May just stick to emails on my phone like I said.

    Just bear in mind, photos and videos will take more space. Could you save those and upload them to a cloud storage like Box or Dropbox?

    I assume Apple's e-mail program is not stupid, and only downloads the necessary parts of the your e-mail folders to your device.

    You could save your older emails to ICloud and retrieve them easily when needed. A text-only email typically takes only a few thousand bytes. An image typically adds perhaps a few megabytes while a movie could add as much as a gigabyte or two (often less than that).
