Step 1

Tap the "Settings" app on your iPhone.

Select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" from the list of options.

Step 3

Tap the Gmail account's name to access your account settings.

Step 4

Select the "Account" button that includes your email address.

Step 5

Tap the "Password" field and enter the new password. Select "Done."
