Facing issues with receiving mails
Here is the guide to resolve the issue of receiving mails on your iphone /ipad
Troubleshooting iPhone & iPad Mail
Let’s look at the many techniques for resolving missing emails in the stock Mail app on the iPhone and iPad. These are fairly basic procedures, some of which you may already be familiar with. However, in the vast majority of circumstances, one of these solutions will suffice.
1. Ensure that your iPhone and iPad are both connected to the Internet.
This may seem insignificant, but the Mail app requires a stable internet connection to function properly. As a result, make sure your iOS device is linked to a Wi-Fi or cellular network and that you can access the internet through other apps. Try loading a web page in Safari, for example.
2. Close the App With Force
You might be one of those persons that leaves a lot of programmes open in the multitasking menu since they aren’t closed. To see if this cures the problem, force close the Mail app. To do so, pull up from the bottom of the screen and then swipe up to force the application to end. Reopen the app and look for any new emails.
3. Check for New Email by Manually Refreshing
Although the Mail app normally checks for new email automatically, in some situations, a manual refresh may be required. While in the inbox, you can use “pull down to refresh” to force a check for new emails.
4. Check your email account’s settings
If you’ve recently changed your email account password or any other information, it’s possible that you’re not receiving any new emails. For your account to sync with Apple’s Mail app, you’ll need to enter the revised password. Follow the steps below to ensure your email account data are right inside settings.
- Navigate to your device’s “Settings” app. Scroll down to “Passwords & Accounts” and tap it.
- Under Accounts, select the email account that you use with the Mail app.
- Tap on it to change your password details if you’re asked to re-enter your password. This should, in most cases, solve your problem. Check it out for yourself by refreshing your inbox.
5. Restart both your iPhone and iPad
Restarting your iOS device is the last thing you want to try. This can be accomplished by just turning your smartphone off and on again. To access the shutdown menu on an iPhone or iPad without home button, hold the side button and the volume up button together. You only need to hold the power button if you’re using an iPhone or iPad with a physical home button. You can also turn off your iPhone or iPad from the Settings menu.
