While our own app has had push notifications for some time, with the built-in Mail app you would have to wait until it next decided to check the server for your new messages. But no more! From today, new mail will be pushed straight to your inbox. Never again will you only learn of that important new cat GIF from your Dad fifteen minutes after everyone else.
We've enabled Push IMAP for all accounts and it will activate automatically; you don't need to do anything. If you haven't set up your mail on your iPhone yet, follow these step-by-step instructions to get started.
Many thanks to our friends on the Apple mail teams for helping make this possible.
