With an increase in remote and mobile workforces, the need to send the same email messages to multiple team members or workers has increased. The To field along with the Cc and Bcc fields in iOS Mail on iPhone and iPad can take any reasonable number of recipients, but it is tedious to type the same list of recipients again and again when emailing a group.

The solution is to use an address book group. After you set up a group in the Contacts app, adding the entire group as recipients is easy in Mail, and doesn't require you to type the addresses repeatedly.
