To create a group mailing list, make a contact group
on your computer that you can access from your
iPhone. Make sure Contacts is enabled on your
iPhone in the iCloud settings, and on your Mac, if you
have one, in Contacts Preferences under Accounts.
On a Mac, open the Contacts app. On a PC, log in
to iCloud.com and open Contacts there. Click on
the + symbol, choose New Group, and name the
Untitled Group that appears. Click on All Contacts.
Holding the command key, click on every contact
you’d like to include in the group. Finally, click and
hold on one of the contacts you’ve selected and
drag and drop the selected contacts in to the group.
Now, when you want to email this group from your
iPhone, type the name of the group into the To:
field, and the field will be populated with the emails.

My iPhone 8 won’t work in my home but my
wife’s older iPhone works fine. Any ideas?

I recommend doing a network reset. Go to Settings
> General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. If this
doesn’t work, it might be a SIM card problem. Try
removing and reinserting the SIM card. It may also
be the type of case you have. A bulkier case can
interfere with reception. Remove your iPhone from
the case and see if reception improves. I’d also recommend contacting your carrier. They can help you
determine whether it’s an issue with them or with
the phone itself, in which case you’d need to return
the phone to Apple and get a new one.
My iPhone offers to autofill an expired
credit card whenever I’m filling out a form
online. How do I remove it?
Ghost of Credit Cards Past
AutoFill credit card information is stored in your
Safari settings. Go to Settings > Safari > AutoFill
> Saved Credit Cards to find the expired card. Tap
Edit, tap the circle to the left of the card name, and
then tap Delete. Confirm that you want to delete
to remove the card. You can also update the card or
add a current card in the Safari AutoFill settings.
