If you have multiple Gmail email accounts and an iPhone, here’s how to add all of your Gmail accounts to your iPhone to access any of them while you’re on the go.
Gmail is one of the most popular email services around, and the iPhone is one of the most popular smartphones on the market. Together, they can create the ultimate combination, but you need to know how to set it all up first. Luckily, there are a couple of ways that you can add your Gmail accounts to your iPhone. Choosing one or the other will depend entirely on how you prefer checking your email and what kind of user interface you want to use.

When you want to access your email and calendar on your iPhone, there are a couple of options to choose from, but if you want to use iOS’s built-in functions, here’s how to set it up.
There are many third-party apps that you can download and install that allow you to view your email and calendar, like Gmail, Yahoo Mail, etc. And many of these apps are really good, coming with all sorts of features. However, if you like Apple’s default Mail and Calendar app on the iPhone, there’s a way you can use those apps by syncing your email and calendar information from a different service.
For instance, if you use Gmail, you could simply install the Gmail [...]
The Gmail iPhone app received a nice update today in the form of Google Drive integration, giving the mobile Drive app a new life after the company dropped support for editing a while back.
If you remember from back in May, Google updated its Drive mobile app and got rid of editing abilities, moving that functionality over to new separate Docs and Sheets apps. This left the Drive app as just a simple app for viewing files and other documents, rather than a robust office suite while on the go.
While the app is still like that, it now has a new function thanks to an update to the Gmail iOS app. Gmail users on iPhone and iPad can now attach files to emails directly from [...]
If you’re not a big fan of the stock Mail app on your iPhone, here are three great alternatives that you should try out.
The Mail app that comes pre-installed on your iPhone can be handy to have, especially if it’s all you really know, and since it’s natively integrated into the iOS ecosystem, it makes certain tasks really easy to do, like sharing a link through email or opening up an attachment from Mail to another iOS service.
However, we’ve discovered that the stock Mail app isn’t the best available, and there are several options for third-party email apps that do a much better job. Plus, you can get them for free in the iTunes App [...]
The iOS 7.1.2 release date is possible as soon as early July according to a new report that outlines potential fixes to iOS 7.1.1 problems and possibly the iMessage problem that holds text messages hostage when sent to iPhone users that switch to Android.
In May reports of an iOS 7.1.2 update surfaced, ahead of Apple’s iOS 8 announcement at WWDC 2014. iOS 8 is a new version of the iPhone and iPad software scheduled for a Fall release, but it looks like Apple plans to fix several lingering iOS 7.1.1 problems before the fall.
Our iOS 7.1.1 reviews on the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPad Air and iPad mini Retina found Apple delivered a reliable update, but not all users [...]
After what seemed like an eternity, Apple has finally released an update for OS X Mavericks that fixes a few issues with Gmail integration in the Mail app. The update is designed to enhance compatibility with Gmail accounts, and includes several other improvements that aim to mend the relationship between Mavericks and Gmail.
Syncing Gmail to the Mail app in Mavericks was a bit broken; messages would keep popping back up in the inbox after users would move them to different folders, and it would sometimes tell users that they had unread email messages, when nothing new would show up in the inbox. That’s because Apple changed the way the Mail app works with [...]
