Google Inbox finally updated for the iPhone X

It’s only taken a lifetime, but Google has finally updated its Inbox by Gmail application for iOS with support for the iPhone X and its notched screen.

We can’t quite fathom why it’s taken Big G such a long time to release the upgrade, seeing as it does nothing more than stretch the existing client to fit the handset’s unusual 19.5:9 – otherwise known as ‘tall’ – aspect ratio and make provisions for the small notch at the top of the screen by pushing everything down a few centimetres.

This month, Apple introduced a new iOS 11 requirement that states that all application updates submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must be optimised for the iPhone X.  That means we can expect to see a number of applications updated with support for the firm’s flagship iPhone in the coming weeks.

Starting July 2018, 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.

With Inbox now crossed off the list, Google only has a handful of updates to distribute before its entire line-up of iOS applications are optimised for the iPhone X – with the most notable titles still yet to receive the 19.5:9 treatment being Analytics, Android TV, Authenticator, Chrome Remote Desktop and Trusted Contacts.
