Apple has announced a series of updates to its email client that one day can save you from an awkward situation at work.
At the WWDC 2022the company has unveiled four new “highly requested” features for its Mail app: undo send, scheduled send, follow-up suggestions, and remind me.
The functionality of each new utility is evident, but the overall effect is to help Apple customers increase their productivity and ensure that important tasks do not fall by the wayside, whether they are working on Mac, iphone or iPad.
How often most of us shoot emails at work means mistakes are inevitable, from misspellings and missing attachments to more costly mistakes like sending a sensitive message to the wrong recipient.
Likewise, the volume of emails arriving in the inbox (combined with the flood of notifications from collaboration tools and messaging apps) makes it easier to miss important communications or forget to act on urgent requests.
The latest updates to Apple Mail, however, are designed to protect against these types of scenarios, helping users stay up to date on their communications and fixing any silly mistakes before the damage is done.
Unfortunately, Apple customers will have to wait a while to get their hands on these new features, which will be released next door. macOS Ventura, iOS 16 and iPad OS 16 in the fall.
But according to Apple, Mail’s new features will be worth the wait, combined with the various other announcements from WWDC to make working on Mac devices easier than ever.
“macOS Ventura includes powerful features and innovations that help make the Mac experience even better,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering.
“With useful new features in Messages, state-of-the-art search technologies in Mail, and an updated design for Spotlight, Ventura has a lot to offer and enriches many of the ways customers use their Macs.”
