iphone Cannot open Mail (eml), Calendar (.ics) files on iPhone

I am using Evernote with MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad.  I have added different files to my notes (pdf, xlsx, ics, eml) by dragging and dropping.  Although I can view/open them without any problem on my computer, I cannot open the ics (iCal) and eml (Mail) files on my iPhone.  They are not recognized and each file has a question mark on it.  Excel and PDF files open fine on iPhone, too.  Any solution, please?

Mobile devices don't automatically have apps installed that can read the same sort of files as a desktop.  An internet search should suggest some options of apps to read your files,  or software that might convert the files to something readable on a mobile.

sound illogical that mail app of iPhone iOS could not open mails saved with mail app of mac OSX...

Is this an Evernote issue or an Apple issue?

With a .eml attachment, I do get an Mail option in the Share menu
