How to configure a Gmail email account in your iPhone email client

Your iPhone mobile device supports automatic email settings for most of the commonly used mail providers. In this tutorial we are going to show you how to configure your iPhone for the use of the Gmail email account.

 

Let’s begin by adding a new email account. This can be easily achieved from the Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars option.

When you access the “Mail, Contacts, Calendars” screen you will need to select  the “Add Account” option from the “Accounts” section.
