Trick 48: Save time by Filtering Emails in Apple Mail To View Only Unread Messages
It’s easy to quickly filter your emails in Apple Mail so that you only see unread messages.
To do so:
1. Launch Apple’s Mail app, and tap your email provider.
2. Tap the circular icon at the bottom left of the screen. It becomes filled with blue (instead of just outlined in blue) and you’ll see a message that displays Filtered by: Unread. Tap the icon again to turn the filter off.
