One of the coolest new features, however, is the ability to schedule your emails from the Mail app. Doing so is pretty simple, and this article will give you all the information you need to get started.
While you can schedule emails in Outlook on your computer, you cannot do so on the iOS app at the time of writing. If you use a Microsoft email account, the Mail app is the easiest way to delay your correspondences for another time.
If you use Gmail, however, you’re in luck. The Gmail iPhone app lets you choose the time you want to send your emails without too many issues. And since the Mail app connects Google accounts, you can choose whichever you feel is more convenient for you.
