Apple Mail App not syncing with Gmail is a common issue, especially when you switch devices or upgrade your operating system.
In this article, we’ll explain why your Apple Mail App might not be syncing with Gmail and walk you through steps to fixing the problem.
Check your internet connection
1. Do you have a strong, stable internet connection?
Check to make sure your device is connected to the internet and that you’re not in Airplane Mode. If your device is connected to the internet and you’re still not getting messages, the next step is to check your settings.
2. Verify that IMAP is enabled:
Make sure that IMAP is enabled on your Gmail account. To do this, open Gmail on a computer and click the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen. Select Settings from the menu that pops up. From there, select Forwarding and POP/IMAP. Click on the Enable IMAP button and save your changes.
3. Check your login information:
In some cases, incorrect login information can prevent Apple Mail from syncing with Gmail. To check your login information, open Apple Mail and go to Preferences > Accounts. Select your Gmail account and make sure that the username and password are correct. If they are incorrect, delete the account and add it again using the correct information.
Check that IMAP is turned on in Gmail
To make sure that your Apple Mail is syncing correctly with your Gmail account, you’ll need to make sure that IMAP is turned on in your Gmail settings.
Log into your Gmail account and click on the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen. Select “Settings” from the drop-down menu. In the “Settings” tab, select “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” from the sidebar on the left. Under “IMAP Access”, ensure that the toggle switch next to “Enable IMAP” is turned on. Click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the screen.

Check that Gmail is set up to sync with Apple Mail
One possible solution to this problem is to check that your Gmail account is set up to sync with the Apple Mail app on your iPhone.
To do this, open the Settings app on your iPhone and select Mail, Contacts, and Calendars. Under Accounts, select Gmail and make sure that the Sync Mail checkbox is enabled. If it is not, enable it, and then try syncing your mail again.
Check for any conflicts with other email accounts
If your Apple Mail app isn’t syncing with your Gmail account, it’s possible that you have an issue with another email account that you’re using on your iPhone. In order to determine if this is the case, you’ll need to check the settings for each individual email account.
To do this, go to Settings and select Mail, Contacts, Calendars. You’ll then see a list of all of the email accounts that are attached to your iPhone. Under each account, you’ll be able to see if there are any conflicts with other email addresses.
If there are conflicts, you’ll need to determine which account you want to keep and delete the other one. After doing this, your Apple Mail app should start syncing with your Gmail account.
Check for any other issues with Apple Mail
It’s possible that your Apple Mail app is having other issues that are causing it to not sync with your Gmail account. To check for other issues, open the Apple Mail app and go to Preferences.
From there, click on Accounts and select your Gmail account. Under the heading of Incoming Mail Server, make sure the setting is set to IMAP. If it’s not, change it and click Save.
Next, go to the Outgoing Mail Server section and make sure the setting is set to SMTP. If it’s not, change it and click Save. Now try to sync your email again.
