How to remove a Gmail account from iPhone and iPad

You can remove a Gmail account from your iPhone or iPad if you are no longer interested in using it. How you do this depends on how you added the Gmail account – you may have added it for Apple’s apps in Settings, set it up in Google’s Gmail app, or both.

What happens when you remove a Gmail account?

Note that deleting a Gmail account from your iPhone will prevent that account from syncing data with the Mail, Contacts, and Calendar apps. Fortunately, your Google account will continue to work with other Google apps like Gmail, Google Maps, Google Drive, YouTube, and other Google apps.

Of course, you can remove your account from the Gmail app as well if you don’t want it there either. And if you are logged into Gmail on Safari, you will need to remove it from there as well. We will show you how to do both.
