    I was under the impression that when low power mode was enabled it disabled fetching of emails in the background however my GoogleMail emails are coming through as normal.

    I know since all the new google settings have come in it has changed email to Push rather than fetch but surely push uses even more power than fetching or am I wrong?

    I'm not complaining as I like low power mode and still having my emails come through is cool, but I was sure emails shouldn't be coming through when in low power mode unless I manually checked.

    I was under the impressions if gmail was setup via mail.app then it's fetching the mail at the interval you have set it at. In low power mode it should prevent

    What do you mean by Google using push since all the new settings have come in?

    Agreed, I am confused about this too. If Gmail via the mail.app does in fact work with push, it is not working for me.

    When set up the old fashioned way (manual account settings etc) I had fetch enabled and push disabled.

    Now when you set up Google via the mail app it takes you to a google sign in page and then does the rest itself and it now seems to be set up with push as default, fetch is off for me.

    Interesting, do you perhaps have a Google Apps or some sort of educational account?

    Nah just a standard account, I think it's all part of Googles new security features, it's a quite new thing.

    Not sure what that would be. On my Google account I only get the fetch and manual options (no push). As I recall some older devices can still have the push option for regular Gmail accounts, but newer ones don't get that.
