How to Get Push Email on iPhone for Gmail


Back in 2013, Google discontinued Push support for Gmail on Apple’s stock Mail app. Since then, Gmail push notifications are broken on iPhone/iPad and irate users have discussed it at length. For instant email notifications you were forced to use the Gmail app for iOS, which usually meant using two email apps (work email on stock iOS Mail and personal on Gmail).

Enter CloudMagic. One of the first features we enabled was instant push notifications for all types of email. CloudMagic uses the power of the cloud to send you reliable push notifications, so there’s nothing special to be done by you, just add your Gmail/Google Apps account and you’re set.
