In the default iOS mail app, what happened to the next/prior email buttons after the recent iOS 10 update?

They are just left/right (as in back/forward) now, rather than up/down.

Repliers,

Yes, the <> buttons are there on the iPhone. But they are missing on the iPad and iPad Mini.

I have found the mail app changes (in iPhone) so frustrating. First, hitting the right arrow to see the newer unread messages seems odd to me. Second, when i click it, and it opens the next newest message.... it does not automatically lower the unread message count right away. There is a long delay. And lastly, if you open an email that is a reply to a long string of an email (a lot of back and forth)... i cannot figure out the logical order of the message. The current message you are viewing is somewhere in the middle of the messages.. and if you are trying to scroll up or down to see what someone else had said before.... hard to find your way back to the current message.
Need to find a different mail app.

You can try changing some threading options in Mail settings.

Just changed some of the toggles, i'll see how that works now. How come for the three toggle options related to threading, the text is too long to read on the middle one, yet i see no way to read it. You can't click on it, doesn't do anything... and there is no description that i can see. It says "Most Recent Message o..."

Might be because you have increased front size and/or using bold text systemwide?

Indeed, i have the text size bumped up one from the default. But i would think that it would truncate part of it to the next line down, so you can actually read all that it says. Are we supposed to go into settings and bump it down temporarily every time we want to read all that settings say?
