In iOS 7, Apple introduced the option to add an "Unread" mailbox to the iOS Mail app, giving users a place to aggregate all incoming email for quick access. The feature was never widely publicized, and as a result, many iOS users today are unaware that it exists.
Adding an "Unread" mailbox takes just a few taps, but it's highly useful, especially when you've got a lot of incoming emails. We've created a video that shows how to enable the Unread mailbox on your iPhone or iPad, and below that, you'll find step-by-step instructions on the process.

- Scroll down beyond the currently enabled mailboxes, and check the "Unread" box.
- Use the hamburger button to move the Unread box to a spot that's most convenient for your usage habits.
- Tap "Done."
