Google updated its Chrome and Gmail apps for iOS to support the increased resolution of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The updates are minor for all other iPhone and iPad users.

Chrome for iOS also gets Google Drive support in addition to its increased resolution. You can down download and open files in Google Drive using Google Chrome. Although Apple won’t allow you to set Chrome as your default browser in iOS, you can live entirely in Google’s ecosystem if you want. The company’s apps are tightly integrated now, allowing you to open a Gmail link in Chrome and opening YouTube links with the YouTube app.

Gmail for iOS is only updated with support for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screens. It’s disappointing that Google still hasn’t added an option for a unified inbox for multiple accounts. The app is still slow and pales in comparison to Gmail for Android.
