We miss the ability to set up and send a group email on the iPhone and iPad (or at least we did, until we discovered this clever workaround). Of course, we don’t mean group emails in the laborious sense – adding each recipient one by one to the “To” field. We’re talking about the handy shortcut where create a collection of people (say friends, or work colleagues) in advance, and then just enter the name of the group in the To field in Mail – a massive time-saver.
For some reason we can’t do this in iOS any more; tapping the plus sign and then Groups merely enables you to select groups created previously in Contacts.
But not to worry. We found a way to send group emails anyway – you just have to do it in iCloud rather than on your iPhone itself.
