How To Add an E-mail Account to the iPhone 6S
The iPhone 6S has a wide array of different uses, but one of the most often overlooked is it’s ability to keep you connected to others from anywhere. While that used to be the biggest selling point of a mobile or cell phone, new additions like amazing cameras, apps, amazing screens, and other features have taken the spotlight from the things like messaging and viewing emails on the go. However, we would argue that these original selling points of a phone (being able to message people from wherever and check your emails from wherever) are still to be celebrated.
Less than two decades ago, if you told someone you were able to check your emails or message with another person in lightning-fast succession from almost anywhere on the planet, they would look at you and think you were crazy. However, now that is easily possible and as long as you are within Wifi or have data on your device, you’re all set. However, in order for you to check your emails on your iPhone 6S, you need to add an account to your device. Of course, before doing that, you must actually create an account, but once the account is created, it still must be added/paired to your device. Creating an email is as easy as going to your preferred provider’s website and simply creating an email.
If you are unsure how to do add an email account to your iPhone 6S devie, you have come to the right place. This article will focus on doing just that. With the recent release of iOs 11, the process has changed slightly, as there is now a full tab in the Settings menu titled Accounts and Passwords. Thankfully, the process to add an email account is incredibly easy to do (even easier than in previous versions of iOs) as long as you follow these steps:
How to Add an Email Account on the Default Mail App on the iPhone 6S
Step 1: Go to Settings, and then find the Accounts and Passwords tab.
Step 2: After you click on that, tap on your email provider, and if you don’t see them listed, simply hit Other.
Step 3: Enter your account information such as email address and password and hit Next, and then wait for verification. Once verified, you can choose contacts or calendar information from your email account to have on your device. Once you are happy with everything, hit Save and your account will now be on your iPhone 6S!
So while that takes care of those people who want to use the default mail app (it should work for most people whether you have a Gmail account, an outlook account or many others), that is not the only way to check and use your emails on the iPhone. If you don’t want to use the included Mail feature, there are plenty of apps you can use instead. With so many options, we have decided to pay closer attention to the Gmail app, as there are more than a billion monthly users of Gmail.
Of course, you can always just use your Gmail account in the native iOS mail app, but if not, there is actually an official Gmail app that you can download and use too. It comes with its own set of differing features and options compared to the Mail app that is automatically on the iPhone. Once you have downloaded this app, it is quite easy to add an email account and begin using it, simply follow these steps:
How to Add an Email account on the Gmail App
Step 1: Once you open the app, tap the menu button on the top left-hand side of the screen (the one with the three stacked vertical lines).
Step 2: Tap the Add Account button to get started and choose the type of account you want to add.
Step 3: Steps will appear on the screen with instructions on how to continue. Once those are completed, you will be able to use the app for all of your emailing needs.
Of course, there are other ways that people check their email and use email on the iPhone, but those are definitely the most popular. Millions and millions of people use these features every day and love how simple it is to stay and get in touch with people, no matter where you are. If for some reason the guidelines and steps in this article weren’t able to help you add an email account to the default mail app or gmail app, you should reach out to Apple as there might be a hardware or software issue with your device.
