    Similar to this thread https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/yahoo-mail-is-gone.2139339/ my Google mail and Calendars stop syncing and was asked to re-enter passwd.

    But when Ingo intonthe account and hit the re-enter password button, nothing happens.

    Also I am not able to add any other Google account when going to Settings-> Passwords & Accounts-> Add Account. Simply the “Google” button does nothing when pressed!
    I tried this on the iPhone and iPad and ghey both xperince the same.

    Also I have reproduced this to other phones, under different Apple IDs...

    Any ideas?

    Just delete the account altogether and then set it up again.

    As I said I cannot add ANY google account.
    The button does nothing.

    Do you have any Screen Time restrictions in place? You might. Otherwise there is no reason you shouldn't be able to modify your accounts.

    Also, I'm not sure what you're referring to as a "reenter password" button. I've got nothing like that in any of my account settings. I just have a password field from which I can delete or reenter the password. No button. Can you post a screenshot?

    See attachment for the Re-Enter passwd


    Also whn I try to add the Google account, all I can get is the Button greyd (when I tap on it)

    And no restrictions are in place.
    This happens to other iPhones also,, (not mine , of 2 friends I’ve check with!)

    Thanks for those pictures. I suspect the suite5 email problem is with your account, not your phone. Contact them for tech support. As for the Google thing...I can only think that Screen Time > Content and Privacy Restrictions > Account is set to not allow account changes. If not, then I'm stuck.

    None of those

    Thing was, the buttons had to be double-taped, unlike any other button there!
