The Gmail app for iOS is getting a new look―similar to the Android app―including new colors, fonts, icons, and other User Interface (UI) elements. These changes are based on material design principles.

The new app also includes popular features like undo send and swipe to archive (or delete), as well as faster search and various accessibility improvements.

Here’s a review of the UI changes and how they impact familiar Gmail tasks.
