Looking forward to the iOS 7 upgrade, especially with all the hype it has been creating.. The Mail app looks extremely similar to the Mailbox app by the creators of Wunderlist.

As part of a major redesign of iOS 7, Apple(s AAPL) showed off some very drastic facelifts for core iPhone apps. A lot of those changes will also seem very familiar: from the new Mail app to Calendar to Weather, it’s pretty clear that Apple has learned well from its army of third-party app makers — and from its biggest competitors.
The basic productivity apps that Apple offers by default have a much more uniform look now: they use a lot of white space with very skinny black font. The overall effect is a far more clean and simplified; gone are the shadows and textures and multicolors. The control buttons have been updated as well in this same theme.
Apple updates these apps a little bit here and there with each new version of the iOS. But we’ve never seen as dramatic an overhaul of them as we saw today.
