Apple's Handoff and 3D Touch Feature

Apple offers a couple of unique features that can be used to streamline your workflow on iOS devices.


Apple's Handoff feature allows you to begin working on one iOS device and pick up where you left off on another. Handoff is available in MailChimp for iOS version 3.5 and later. MailChimp for iOS must be installed on each compatible device you want to use.

When you're working in MailChimp for iOS on a compatible device, a MailChimp icon appears in the lower-left corner of the lock screen on your other devices. On the new device, swipe the icon up to open MailChimp for iOS, and we'll send you straight to the screen you were viewing on your other device.

Troubleshoot Handoff

Handoff uses iCloud to sync information between your iOS devices. Initially, the Handoff feature may not work on some iCloud accounts and will require that you restart a couple settings on your mobile devices. If Handoff doesn't work for you, follow these steps.

  • Check that your iOS devices are compatible with Handoff.
  • If your devices are compatible, open your device's Settings, and turn Bluetooth off and on again.
  • You may also need to sign out of iCloud and back in again, in the Settings app for each device.

3D Touch

Apple's 3D Touch feature opens a Peek and Pop when you tap on an application to show you shortcuts to what's inside. 3D Touch is available on iPhone 6s and later.

To quickly add a subscriber or view your latest report, tap and push on the MailChimp app on your iOS device to open the Peek and Pop.

Notification Center Widgets

MailChimp for iOS includes campaigns and lists widgets that can be added to the Today view in the pull-down iOS Notification Center. The Campaigns widget displays an overview of reporting statistics for your most recent campaign and a shortcut to the full campaign report. The Lists widget lets you select a list to use, and displays list growth statistics and a shortcut to add subscribers.
