No more Google Sync through Exchange (for new accounts)

http://www.theverge.com/2012/12/14/3...l-calendar-and

Not sure how this will affect most iOS users who sync their Google contacts and GMail and Google Calendar through Exchange on iOS.

Did you guys miss the part where it says existing users can continue to use it. It's is only for new accounts.

Apps for business and education will still be supported as well

I prefer to fetch my Gmail once an hour anyway, so I've been using the Gmail + CardDav set up for a bit now. It works pretty much exactly the same, save for push email.

That's all good and true unless you have to restore iOS through iTunes. Or if you get your phone replaced through Apple Care.

There's another discussion in the iOS6 forum http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1508098

For those not concerned about push email from Gmail in the native mail app, that's fine. But do not assume everyone is OK with fetch. I require push and if Google denies me that option I have a few options:

- drop Gmail and use Hotmail/Outlook or iCloud
- install Gmail app for push notifications and use native mail app to fetch

Some may tout the Gmail app as a better option..... maybe but can you create an event or open the Maps app from text inside the body of an email? Nope!

Google is thumbing the eye of Apple every chance it gets.

Kind of like how Apple is thumbing Google every chance it gets?

Is this true? If you restore or get a new iphone and restore, google sync will not create a new account every time.

I've restored my iphone 5 many times and checked the device management link under google sync and there aren't any new iphone accounts created, just the one.

So as long as your iphone has been using EAS, you should be able to continue using EAS after January.

Can anyone confirm?

What? I will be using a preexisting account. I'm good. If I choose to creat a new email address then that account will not have sync.

CardDAV actually works better for me. You're able to associate Twitter IDs and custom information, that previously Google Sync (at least for me) didn't handle.

carddav and caldav are iOS supported, you would be adding "Other" under the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" setting.

Existing accounts can still use exchange active sync.
Regardless, the gmail app has push, and iOS supports contacts and calendar via caldav and carddav. Google dropping AES support next year is really a non-issue.

Unless people don't want to use the gmail app (although I suspect that's exactly what this is designed to force people in to). I use both iCloud and gmail mail, and I like it all in one app.

Ok, so all my friends and family I set up with GMail Exchange...I can just ignore all of that?

That's my biggest fear, having to re-do all the help I've given out over the years. Ugh, shoot me now if that's the case.

But if that's not the case then, well, whatever.

I think this is a lame change, but it's not like Apple makes iCloud for Android so...yeah, how can I fault Google for starting to see things in a similar light?

Let's make it clear:

Right now, nothing has changed.

From the 30th January 2013:

-If you have never used Google Sync before, you will not be able to activate it on your account
-If you have a new device, you will not be able to add it to your existing Google account with Google Sync enabled

It seems as though all devices that are now set up to use AES will continue to work after the 30th. I think the trouble comes when setting up a new device. Google needs to be more clear on what will happen

It will work the same if you set up gmail contacts and calendar sync with carddav and caldav.
