    Select Automatic Fetch, and voilà!

    Gmail pushes new mail, syncs read/unread status, easy breezy!

    So happy!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Fingers crossed it stays that way






    P.S. On another note, Apple still can't auto-clear app badges for their stupid iCloud accounts

    LOL.. for real? I feel like we go through this every year after new iOS releases.

    Yeah, iCloud mail sucks in that with multiple devices the read and delete statuses don’t sync until you open the mail app.

    So there's an actual push option for Gmail accounts?

    No, there isn't, you just select Automatic Fetch, and it pushes new mail and syncs read/unread status, just like on Mac, where it has worked since day one.

    I think that's how it is in iOS 11 with Automatic too.

    Yes, but it never worked until iOS 12

    Try fetching new mail on iOS 11 without opening the app, won't work

    Not really an announced feature, correct? An anecdotal observation?

    The "Automatic" setting has allowed for push Gmail in the native Mail app, when the device is connected to power and on WiFi, for awhile now

    That's basically it. Doesn't really appear that there's anything new there.
