    So I've had this issue for a while now, but it is really starting to get on my nerve sometimes now. I don't know whether this is something that used to be different or that this is something is 'normal'. I'll try to explain the best I can:

    I have an Macbook Pro 2015 and a iPhone SE. When there's a email coming in, I get a notification almost simultaneously on my Mac and iPhone. My Mac is always up-to-date, when I open a mail on my iPhone my Mac sees that and syncs accordingly. When it's the other way round, so when I open a incoming email on my Mac, my iPhone does not see that unless I manually (most of the time) refresh my mail app. It does not matter whether the mail app on my iPhone is active or not. I have already messed around with the setting (push/fetch) but that does not seem to be making a difference. So what I want is for the iPhone to always be synced, just like my Mac. It work fine with Reminders for example, so why can't that work as well with email?

    I've already had contact with Apple Support, I did what they asked: iPhone has been reset, no back-up installed after that. Issue still there. Network settings reset, no difference.

    Hope you know more!

    Best regards,

    Settings > Mail > Accounts > "Fetch New Data" > all the way to the bottom, what's it set to? I run "Every 15 minutes" and it does sync up within that timeframe.
