Set up G Suite apps on iOS with Google Sync

This article is for G Suite users of managed Apple iOS devices. Other users should go to Gmail and Calendar

You can customize certain Gmail and calendar settings on your Apple iOS device.

Send deleted emails to Trash

When you delete G Suite email messages using the iOS Mail app, Gmail archives the email instead of deleting it. If you’d prefer to send the email to Trash in G Suite, follow these steps: 

  1. On your iOS device, go to Google Sync settings.
  2. Check the Enable "Delete Email As Trash" for this device box.

If you delete a message by mistake, you can find it by signing in to Gmail (browser or app) and going to Trash. Emails in Trash are permanently deleted after 30 days.

Sync G Suite calendars to your device

You can sync up to 25 calendars with the iOS Calendar app on your device.

  1. Open the Chrome or Safari browser on your device and go to https://m.google.com/sync/settings/.
  2. Sign in with your account and select your device from the list of devices.
  3. Select the calendars you want to sync, and tap Save.
  4. Bookmark this page so you can return to it easily.
