But what if you send an email to someone for the first time from your iPhone. Your iPhone will remember that email address, but your iPad won’t necessarily know about it.
Even worse, if you lose one of your devices (or just switch to a new one), you may find that all the email addresses that you thought were 'saved away' were actually only 'known' to that lost device.
(Note. The same applies to phone numbers, but we'll cover that in a separate handy hint.)Your Contacts app is your Address Book on your iPhone, iPad and Mac, to which you should save all information about email addresses, phone numbers and addresses for the people in your life.
Your Contacts app is your Address Book on your iPhone, iPad and Mac, to which you should save all information about email addresses, phone numbers and addresses for the people in your life.
If you sign in to iCloud on each device and turn on the ‘Contacts’ setting in iCloud, you will find that all your devices can share the same address book information. This means that you only have to create or change a Contact on one device, and it will magically appear on other devices.
From your Mail app, it is so easy to get the email addresses of the people with whom you correspond into your Contacts - all it takes is a couple of taps!
