Apple Working on Redesigned iCloud Mail for Web

Apple has begun testing a major redesign to the iCloud Mail experience on the web, bringing its webmail service more in line with recent design changes made in macOS Big Sur.

icloud mail beta redesign
The new design, currently in beta, reported first by 9to5mac, features a cleaner overall design and feel than the current public experience of ‌iCloud‌ Mail for the web. The current, soon-to-be previous version features thin typography, lighter colors, and design elements from iOS 7. Additionally, the new design allows users to compose emails in a smaller window in the middle of the screen, compared to opening an entirely new window.

As the new design is in beta testing alongside iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, macOS Monterey, and tvOS 15, it will likely be made available for all ‌iCloud‌ web users later this fall. Users wanting to try the new ‌iCloud‌ Mail design can check out the beta website for iCloud.

I don’t know why why iCloud.com is so poor, but I suspect Apple doesn’t really care and want people to use Macs, iPhones and iPads and that the subpar experience is deliberate.

I find the web interface to be clunky and often times slow.

Is the mail app still trash? I haven’t used it in years on my Apple devices.
It works fine for me for sending and receiving. The only ongoing problem I have with the app is the red badge doesn’t always disappear across all devices when it should.

FFS…still lacks threaded messages! Gmail is the last Google service I’m using but iCloud mail is just poor.

Redesign is nice but the features in mail certainly could do with but of focus from Apple. Maybe these new extensions will come to all version of Mail.

I'm glad they continue to invest in this but I really wish they'd introduce server-side mail rules and Smart Mailboxes and sync them with the ones in Mail.app.
