    Are you having trouble finding the unread messages within your email accounts on an iPhone or iPad?

    First, if your phone has been on for a long time, turning the device off and powering back on has a way to fixing many types of problems.

    If that doesn't work for you, use these steps to add a special smart folder called "Unread" in the iOS mail app:

    To add the unread smart folder, open the mail app and then click Edit:

    Next, tap the radio button next to Unread, then tap done:

    After making the change you'll have an Unread label below the VIP and Flagged labels:
