When Gmail stops working on your iPhone, you might not be able to login to an app or service, change other websites’ passwords, miss bank alerts, and more. In short, things can get chaotic. Thankfully, this issue can be fixed successfully. In this article, I’ll explain why Gmail is not working on your iPhone or iPad and show you how to fix the issue.
Why is Gmail not working on my iPhone?
Before going for the fixes, it is vital to understand why Gmail is not working on your iPhone or iPad. And the primary reason for this is security. If you are in a different region (say on a trip to a different city or country), Google might prevent Gmail from working to safeguard you, as it might think someone else is trying to access your emails.
In contrast, sometimes the error may lie on your iPhone or in the mail app. There have even been situations when mobile data was off for the mail app, which prevented new emails!
Worry not. I have covered fixes for all these issues below. The first five solutions are related to checking things from Google’s end. In the rest, we make sure to correct things on the iPhone’s (iPad’s) end.
