How to Schedule Emails on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

Don't want to forget to wish your friends or clients on special occasions? Schedule emails using your iPhone, iPad, and Mac to automatically send your message at a preferred date and time. There are quite a few email apps that let you do so. Let me show you how it works:

Though I never forget to wish my friends and loved ones on their birthdays or any special occasions, I don’t take any chance and ensure that my heartfelt message reaches them at the perfect time. One of the simple tricks that I use to never miss an opportunity to show my love and regards is advance planning! Thanks to several new age email apps, scheduling emails on iPhone, iPad and Mac is a piece of cake and you must take the full advantage of this smart way to continue to win praise from your loved ones.

The stock Mail app for iOS and macOS may have vastly improved recently. However, it still lacks some user-friendly features like scheduling emails. There are three third-party email apps like Microsoft Outlook, Newton Mail, and Spark, which I have found a step ahead of their peers. You can choose any of these email apps to schedule messages.

In this tutorial, I’m going to use Spark, as it’s a bit smarter and pretty easy-to-use.

Step #1. First off, download Spark on your iOS device and then set it up. The app requires iOS 9 or later.

The app supports various email apps like Google, Yahoo, Outlook. Just open the app and then log in using your existing email account.
