When you set up email on the iphone, there are two options for setting up gmail. Either you can press the gmail button, or you can follow google’s instructions on how to set up IMAP for gmail on the iPhone. What’s the difference between these?

    Google’s instructions were written before the iPhone had the preset gmail option. You will be able to have your email set up as an imap account either way. The only real difference is in the amount of typing you have to do to set it up.

    There is no difference. It’s a template so you don’t have to know about IMAP. Not all users will know that IMAP should be used or why it is better than POP.
