New iPhone day: How to move to your shiny new device.


Millions of people will be getting new devices today, and over the coming week… and some of them will want to know how to transfer their MailShot data across to the new device.

The easiest way to move to a new device is to restore from an iCloud or iTunes backup of your old device. This will move all app data and settings across, and MailShot will have all the groups from your previous device.

If you skipped that option when setting up your new device, you can wipe that new device from the General page of the Settings app, and choose the iCloud backup from your old device when you restore it.

If you can’t use this solution for any reason, Here is the support page article on how to move all groups from one device to another using iTunes.

Or, if you still have the special contacts which MailShot created for you in your address book, you can rebuild groups from them like this:

  1. Create a new MailShot group, with a different name
  2. Tap “+” and add the old MailShot-created contact from your address book.
  3. A list appears of all the members of your group, Select the addresses you wish to import from it using the checkmarks.

You can now name the new group to match your old one, by tapping “Edit” and then selecting the group name you want to change, on the page that lists your groups. Alternatively, use the Contacts app to delete the old group contact.
