how to schedule emails on iphone using ios 16

Apple has added the ability to schedule what time emails are sent using the default Mail app in iOS 16, giving users the option to compose a message and schedule it to be sent hours, days, or even weeks in advance.

Particularly useful for late-night workers, birthday messages or reminders, users can schedule emails ahead of time and are even given a moment to cancel delivery of a message before it reaches a recipient’s inbox. iOS 16 also includes a new feature that automatically reminds users to follow up on an email if they have not received a response, as well as a prompt to warn if a user forgets to include an attachment in their email.

Third-party email apps with scheduling tools have been available on the App Store for a long time, but never before has Apple built the functionality into the default Mail app on iPhone. When scheduling an email, users can select a generic preset option or create a custom trigger to send the email on any desired date and time.

How to schedule emails on iPhone using iOS 16

  • Open the Mail app and compose your email as usual
  • Press and hold the Send icon (the blue arrow) and wait for the popup menu appears
  • Select either one of Apple’s preset scheduling options or tap Send Later to set a custom date and time
  • When selecting Send Later, choose your date from the calendar shown on the screen, select a time and tap Done

After creating a schedule a new Send Later folder will appear in the Mail app under Mailboxes. This folder contains all mail that is scheduled to be sent. From here, users can either delete the message, edit the schedule or send the email immediately.
