Another thorn in the side for this bitter sweet partnership is ever since installing ios7 on my 5 and then getting a 5s my gmail push has been unreliable. It would often fail to push mail and i would receive email in batches. This is of course using a business apps account that still supports push. I also have a personal gmail account set up using 1 hour fetch. I get my mail on iMac instantly but it takes some time to come through on the phone, but the behaviour is random, sometimes it works fine. I'm well within signal, cell and wifi. Anyone else experiencing this? Would it even be an Apple problem?
