since updating to ios13 its like my mail on my iPhone is no longer pushing to it much, anyone know why or how to fix this?

It seems now every time i open mail, it refreshes and bam a few emails come in that are dated like an hour ago or something.

checked settings, all are set to push, and the setting at the bottom is push automatically when on wifi and power, which i am.

I am experiencing the same thing on my SE under iOS 13.

same thing on new iPhone 11 Pro max....I'm hoping this latest update will fix issue. I have to close out mail and re launch to get mail to show up. The strange thing is sometimes my VIP mails will show up in Notification Center but I have to close out the app and re launch to get those emails to populate even though the phone received it....

Same thing here with iPhone 8, 13.1.2. I get the notifications that there is new mail, but the mail has not actually downloaded to the phone and doesn't unless I refresh it by pulling down on the screen. I am using the native mail app with two gmail accounts.

Something else to watch for: One of my accounts was periodically losing connection with the google server. When I was attempting to send a test email from that account (to try to re-establish a connection), it wouldn't send, so the app sent from the other gmail account instead without my having selected that.

Yep - Same here on my XS Max. Thought it would be fixed with 13.2, but it happened to me this morning. Some days are fine, other days I have this problem.

yep - ongoing - and shocking that Apple hasn't fixed this.

Anyone know if a clean install fixes it?

same issues for me and my wife.
"so weird no emails today" click Mail BOOM 23 emails come in dated earlier in the day.

very frustrating.
Some days things seem to work and I think all is good. then the next day nothing comes through. I have reset my PUSH and Notifications, etc. nothing seems to have helped. I am on 13.2 now and will see how that works but it seems this is NOT fixed from others experiences.

PS. we use iCloud for Email. not sure about any other email clients

I did a clean install of iOS13 a few weeks ago, and I have the mail issue.

I am not sure if a clean install would correct the issue now, but I doubt it.

I found i had to turn badge/alerts back on - alerts for my main mail account had been stopped for some reason.
It seems better now but there are still bugs in mail for sure. sometime is can't see certain accounts, sometimes i have to refresh to get new mail.

Hopefully an update will fix.

Same here I am now forwarding my iCloud emails to Gmail and using Gmail app pushes instantly. Getting to point where Apple cannot be trusted for their apps.

On iOS 13.3.1, clean install, push for iCloud mail simply does not work.
I never receive any notification/badge.
Still not fixed!! 😤

Seems like we'll have to wait until iOS 14 at this point, since I recall reading iOS 13.4 beta 1 users saying it wasn't fixed in that version either.
