Email Setup on Apple iPhone with iOS 6 Print

  • 109

This tutorial will show you how to add an email account to your iPhone.

At the time of this writing, the current Operating System (OS) is iOS 6.1.4. Make sure your phone's operating system is up to date before adding an email account to it, you can get help on how to do this from your wireless carrier (AT&T, Verizon, etc.) or Apple.

We highly recommend setting up your email account when your phone is connected to wifi, if you are on 3G/4G, make sure you have good reception while in one place and not moving around.
