Solved: Password Incorrect iPhone Email

Password Incorrect iPhone Email

Using an iPhone has its own merits and demerits. This is true in the case of all the devices that we use in our daily lives.

At times, when you attempt to connect to your email account through your iPhone, you might encounter the “Incorrect Password” OR “Password Incorrect iPhone Email” error message on the screen. In such a situation, you need to change the password saved on your iPhone email app so that it matches the one you use for your email account.

Let us take the example of a Gmail account.

When you change your Gmail password, it will also get automatically changed on your Android device. But this is not the case if you are using an iOS device. Every time you change your email account password, you also have to modify it on your iOS device manually.

So, how to change your email account password saved on your iPhone or any other iOS device?

  • Step 1: On your iPhone (or some other iOS device), tap the Gear or Settings icon. This action will launch the Settings app.
  • Step 2: Now, tap the Mail, Contacts, Calendars tab (in case you are using an earlier iOS version).
  • Step 3: For the latest iOS versions, you need to tap the Passwords & Accounts tab.
  • Step 4: Choose the email account with the outdated password, that is, the one you wish to update.
  • Step 5: Next, tap the Account tab and type in your email account’s correct password.
  • Step 6: Finally, tap the Done button to save the changed configuration.
  • Step 7: When you are done, you can exit out of Settings.
  • Step 8: In case you wish to alter or update any other email passwords, you can follow the same procedure.

After changing or updating an email password on your iOS device, it is wise to confirm that your email account is functioning as intended. To do the same, follow the steps given below:

  • Step 1:First, open the Mail app on your iOS device.
  • Step 2:Next, send yourself an email using the email account for which you have just altered the password.
  • Step 3:When you can receive the same email on your Inbox, you can be sure that everything works as expected.
