iOS 16 and macOS Ventura add support for the BIMI (Brand Indicators for Message Identification) standard in the Mail app, which helps users easily verify authenticated emails sent by tags by displaying the tag logo next to the email heading.

iOS 16 digitally certified record
In the Mail app, e-mails are sent by brands with a BIMI record marked with a “Digital Certified” label, which is visible after printing to expand the e-mail header. Next to the label, a “Learn more” link leads to the following message: “This email was verified as being from the owner of the displayed logo and domain [example.com.]”

In order for a brand logo to appear, the sender’s domain must pass the DMARC authentication check, according to the BIMI Group website. If the e-mail passes the authentication, the Mail app requests DNS for a corresponding BIMI record.

Based on a tweet shared by software engineer Charlie Fishit seems that Chase Bank is an example of a brand that has implemented BIMI, where the Chase logo is displayed next to an email sent by the bank in the Mail app on iOS 16. BIMI is also supported by Gmail , Yahoo Mail and Fastmail, according to BIMI Group.

This is just one of several new features added to the Mail app on iOS 16 and macOS Ventura, with others including the ability to remove an email up to 10 seconds after sending, scheduled emails, notifications if you forget to include an attachment on an email, support for extensive links in emails, enhanced search functionality and more.
