It has been at the very least about nine months since the Apple iPhone X got to the market, and now Google has finally updated its Inbox email app that is capable of supporting the device. In an update that was released on the Apple App store a few days ago, Google stated that Inbox now supports Apple’s most expensive iPhone device. Aside the fact that the app is 144MB in size, Google didn’t say if they made any changes to the app as regards interface or features.
What this update does is get rid of the black bars on the top and bottom parts of the screen so that it fits into the display of the iPhone X perfectly considering the fact that the iPhone X has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Months have passed since users of the iPhone X have been complaining about the lack of support of the Inbox email app and since then Google has been reassuring users that it was working on that beginning three months ago after the redesign of the Gmail app.
The main idea behind this update may look like an indication that Google is taking note of the complaints of users who have for a long time been crying out for a full screen support for Inbox. But in the real sense, it appears as if the company is working in accordance with the new rules and regulations that was made by Apple’s iOS 11 that put into play beginning this July, that “all iOS app updates submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must support the Super Retina display of iPhone X.” Be that as it may, it is somewhat of a good thing that we’re able to see that the iOS version of Inbox gets the update and more especially the attention that it is worthy of irrespective of the fact that it is still missing out on a few key features say for example, an “all inboxes” view which is available on Android.
