    Apple seriously needs to fix this first. It is very annoying.

    I use several Yahoo, Gmail, Comcast and an old a Hotmail and haven't seen a problem. Who is your email provider?

    Yahoo is the one that doesn't update


    I have to go into yahoo inbox and pull down the screen to refresh and I have to wait until it resets. If I press the home button while it is refreshing it won't reset the count either.
    Refreshing all inboxes doesn't work. I have to be in the yahoo inbox.

    This is my second iPhone 5 with iOS 7 and they both do that.

    Are you talking about yahoo mail the APP or setting up yahoo as a e-mail account with the native app?

    Has it ever occurred to you that Yahoo may be the culprit?

    Same thing happens to me while using the native mail.app

    It eventually clears, but not instantly like iOS6. A bug report has been submitted, so hopefully Apple adds it to upcoming releases.

    I'm on 7.1 beta 4

    That was my thought. I have several email accounts across different systems and this bug never happens on the others. Sometimes on yahoo, sometimes not

    Unread email count doesn't update after reading/deleting all new email


    I get it with all my email accounts including my iCloud.com account and all I use is the native app.

    What I think it is is the server updating. So if I have a notification, go into mail and delete the mail, then back out it's still there. Until mail checks the email and verifies you have no new email. Reason I think that is because on wifi it never happens. I only see it when I'm on 3G especially with poor reception.

    Edit: just tested my "theory" out with airplane mode. They deleted quickly and normally. I dunno then.
