Update email password in iOS (iPhone, iPad)

Once you have reset your email password using webmail, you need to enter the new password on all the devices you use for checking mail.

Before updating your email app, make sure the password you have works to login to your email account via webmail.

Once you have verified the password works, on your iPhone:

  • Tap the Settings icon. (or ask Siri to open Settings).
