Last year, Microsoft announced a major update for Outlook for iOS app. This update comes with new design, improved user experience and more. This update roll-out started last month and as of today the rollout of the new update is now available to all users.

With the new design in Outlook for iOS, when you swipe right or left on an email, you can notice subtle changes in color, shape, and iconography unfold. The corners of the message transform from hard-edged to soft and round. There’s a new animated calendar icon that fans forward or backward as you scroll through your agenda, or the instant insight provided in your inbox by signaling a potential meeting conflict. A strong app header with bold color and typography helps you easily find your way to Outlook. And the size of the header is dynamically reduced to maximize your message list to view.

If you’re a single account user, the app is personalized with your avatar. If you have multiple accounts and calendars added to the app, new account icon cues help you easily switch between them. The Focused Inbox toggle and message list filtering experience now orientate you to your content and accounts to offer more clarity.
