Google is constantly improving its famed Gmail client, and with the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus having recently been rolled out by Apple, the Gmail for iOS app has been given its customary update for optimization with the new display sizes. In true geek style, the release is numbered 3.1415926, or Pi, and we’ve got the rest of the details as well as the download link right here.
Apple finally broke a long-standing habit and increased considerably the amount of display real estate on both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and its 5.5-inch cousin, the iPhone 6 Plus.
The "it just works" motif in action once again from Apple’s side, Google’s similarly renowned persistence updates is also a feature here, and as well as making the aesthetic adjustments for users of the new handsets, the version number now stands at 3.1415926.
With no other alterations, enhancements or adjustments noted in the change log, it’s unlikely that those using iPad, iPod touch or any older iPhone will notice any difference, although since Google often throws in a couple of bug fixes and general housekeeping tweaks without making a song and dance about it, the Pi edition of Gmail for iOS is definitely worth grabbing.
We’ve had a quick look at the new Gmail app on an iPhone 6, and immediately, it’s much more pleasurable to navigate, with Google having made much better use of the extended canvas. It doesn’t really look any different, it has to be said, just more spaced out, but as we wait for some more exiting updates to Gmail in the not-so-distant, this is still a tidy update for those rocking iPhone 6 / 6 Plus.
If you don’t have Gmail installed already, grab it via the link below, otherwise, simply update using the App Store app.
