Gmail users are 1 in 3 inboxes and many of those subscribers are proud owners of Apple’s latest smartphone: iPhone X. However, after buying the device, Gmail users were shocked to realize the app has not been updated for The Notch; that is until now.
iCloud for Gmail users
Gmail has added iCloud Support for the first time for iPhone X users and most of us want to start using it immediately. To do so, the user must go to the Gmail app and enter the main menu. The next step is to click on Add Account option. iCloud is one of the options provided. Select iCloud and create an in-app password.
Go to the Gmail app and click NEXT and then enter your email and password you have just created.
The recommendation is to use @icloud.com and Google will automatically use the proper server settings.
