If you have iOS devices like an iPhone and an iPad, it is convenient to have access to the same information on all the devices. It is easy and handy to have the same photos, email, messages, and more across all the devices.

Although there is no single option that you can locate to keep your iOS devices in sync at all the times, it is possible for you to keep a lot of iOS information in sync across your devices by using an iCloud and iOS feature named Continuity.

How to sync email between your iPhone and iPad

By syncing your email between your iPhone and iPad, you can read and reply to any email message on your iPad and iPhone both. This is possible by using Exchange, iCloud, IMAP, or a web-based account like Gmail. Almost all the email accounts belong to these categories, so one does not have to worry too much regarding not having the correct setup.

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Click on "Passwords and Accounts," and then click "Add Account."
  3. Now add an email account and ensure that it's appropriately configured with the username and password.
  4. After configuration, add the same account to the other device.

You will need to add the accounts manually and configure them at first but once configured, the accounts will constantly stay in sync connecting the two devices. Note- This method is not applicable for a POP account because in case of a POP account, all messages are saved and stored locally and hence iOS is unable to keep the two devices synced.

  3. Click on "iCloud" and then click "Photos."
