Outlook embraces the notch with iPhone X support

Apple started shipping its new iPhone X on November 3, but, as anyone who has managed to get their hands on one can attest, a number of popular third-party apps have lagged behind in updating to support the device's signature notch. Outlook was among those ranks, but Microsoft has remedied the issue with the latest update to the mail app.

The update means that Outlook now extends to fill the entire screen on the iPhone X, giving it more vertical space, while eliminating the ugly black bars previously present above and below the app.

Aside from iPhone X support, the update to version 2.51.0 doesn't include any further features. However, hopefully this signals that Microsoft is also ready to update its stable of other iOS apps with support as well.
