Apple's VIP Inbox isn't new, but it's a great solution for iOS users who don't want to switch mobile email apps. VIP Inbox, a feature in Mail for iOS 6 and OS X Mountain Lion, works similarly to Google's new Mail offering, except that you select the VIPs in your inbox. To set up VIP Inbox, open your Mail app and hit the icon of the blue circle with white right-facing arrow. Then tap "Add VIP," and you'll be taken to your Contacts list.
Once your VIP list is set up, the next time you receive a message from a VIP contact your phone will make a unique indicator alert and highlight the message in a separate VIP inbox. The feature not only filters new messages, but it will also dig through old messages and segregate past VIP correspondence.
