    There is a security setting in your G-Mail account to allow more insecure logins. This is most likely the issue, you need to enable it.

    Does gmail exchange even work on iOS still? I thought Google disabled it a few years back?

    It's still available for paying Google Apps customers.

    OP: Out of interest, why use Exchange and not the native Google option, or the Gmail and Google Calendars apps?

    The native google option doesn't allow push.
    The gmail app is a bit buggy but i will have to continue using it i suppose
