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.
