The new Gmail for iOS is completely white, new design rolling out now
Google revealed last month that its Gmail will “suffer” a major redesign that's meant to bring the Material Theme in front and center of its mobile app. Less than a week ago, the Google Material Theme arrived for Android users, but iOS users were left wondering when exactly their promised will be available for download.

Well, if you're using an iPhone or iPad, you'll be happy to know that Google is now rolling out the highly-anticipated Google Material Theme update to everyone using Gmail for iOS. The update hasn't been marked on the App Store since this is a server-side update, so you'll automatically get it on your device at some point in the next few days.

The first thing you'll notice is that Gmail is now … brighter. Gone are the red accents that have been the symbol of Gmail for so many years, now replaced by a white color. Since the app adopts the new Material Theme design, the icons have been changed and there's a new hamburger icon that gives you access to the navigation drawer, 9to5google reports.

The first time you open Gmail after it's been updated, you'll be asked to select between three views: Default, Comfortable, and Compact. One other thing that will clearly stand out is the bottom side where you'll notice the four-colored FAB, which you tap to write a new email.

Thanks to the white-colored design, it will be easier to spot various labels in your Inbox. On the other hand, the app looks disturbingly bright in low-light conditions.
