Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Do you mean you've generated the app password ***** the Google website below, and it did not work:

http://accounts.google.com/

- Can you open the Settings app icon on the iPhone, then select option Mail, Contacts, Calendar, then tap on your gmail account if shown, and delete it for now

, then tap on Add Account option, then select Google option, then sign in with your regular gmail email password (instead of an app password), and check; if it does not work, try again with an app password.

- If that does not work, please delete the gmail account again if shown, then don't add it again

, then open App Store app icon, then type / search for gmail then install the Gmail app

, then open the Gmail app, then sign in your gmail email address with your regular gmail password ***** check.

Please reply at the box below to continue troubleshooting. Thank you.

Great, I'm glad you got it working now. Also, if you'd like to, you can try using the Gmail app from App Store; it is the official email app from Google / Gmail; it may work better for now. Do you need help with anything else today on your iPhone, and/or with any computer / electronics question / issue? Please reply at the box below. Thank you for the update.
