"Here's a question. You're in the iPhone mail app, and you're looking at your inbox, when a new email arrives. What happens?"
A very thorough discussion and dissection on one process from the mail app that is used in iOS. In this case, the answer depends on where you are on your list of emails. If you are down past the 3rd email in the list then you get the notifications ie sounds that you normally get when a new email arrives but you aren't brought back to the top to see it automatically. If you are less than three emails down, then you are automatically brought back to the top to see the new email. It certainly saves you from being aggravated if you are 20 or 30 emails down and suddenly scrolled back up to see an email that may or may not be important. It is just another example of the attention to detail that has been shown time and time again with the iOS.
