Why is my Gmail Not Updating on iPhone?
If your Gmail account experiences problems updating the mobile app, you may not be able to use the Gmail functionality. Gmail not updating issues can also cause your apps to run slowly. To get things working as they should, you need to check your Mail settings. Start by heading over to iPhone's settings, tap 'Mail' and then 'Accounts,' tap on 'Fetch New Data,' then toggle on the 'Push' button. Also, downloading the latest version of the Gmail app may solve Gmail update problems. Sometimes a simple restart is all it takes to get a smartphone or tablet to work correctly. So, try restarting your iPhone and check if the issue has gone.
