This update is good news for hardcore Gmail users with the iPhone X as prior to today, the app was letterboxed along the top and the bottom of the display, significantly reducing the amount of screen real-estate available in the app. Oddly enough, the new version change log doesn't include mention of the newly added iPhone X support, but does describe its big new feature: support for non-Google email accounts via IMAP. Gmailify launched on Android more than a year ago, so it's definitely nice to see Google finally bringing the feature to its iOS app.
If you're an iPhone X owner, you'll be happy to know that many Google apps have received updated that give them support for Apple's latest handset. Gmail also gets support for non-Google email accounts via IMAP. With today's update, Gmail users can use their Outlook, Office 365, iCloud, Yahoo, or IMAP/POP3 accounts with the iOS app.
With GMail having over a billion active users and 20% of the global email client market according to some recent data, this update is welcome.
