The next version of the iPhone will feature a universal mailbox that will compile different email accounts on one screen, along with other new iPhone features.
Current iPhone users have to check each mailbox separately, and a consumer sent a question to Apple CEO Steve Jobs about the iPhone getting a universal mailbox similar to Mail on Mac in the future. Jobs responded with the affirmative, “Yep.”, and it’s thought that the capability will feature on the next version of iPhones, due out in the US in June or July.
And with more proof that the next generation iPhone is looming, TechCrunch reported on Apple’s new policy to sell iPhones in the US without a carrier contract, which is a sure sign that the next generation of devices are slated to release soon. The policy will allow Apple to move existing inventory before the new iPhones are introduced.
In addition to the universal mailbox, MacGuide previously reported on rumours that the next iPhone will include multitasking, which has always been absent from the device, despite vocal demand for the feature.
Despite its growth in 2009, as Android gains hold in the mobile market, Apple has to stay quick on its feet to continue to compete. Users have a raft of mobile devices to choose from, and in order to continue demand for the iPhone, many are expecting Apple to bring out a number of new, oft-requested features in the upcoming release.
