But I just entered it on my iphone yesterday and had no problems accessing gmail; but today it asks me again. From an article in imobie here are their suggestions. Most relate to asking for Apple password, but article says “Keeps asking for password error”.

  1. Restart the iPhone. (This worked for smi 20191109, was able to access email a few mins after the reboot)
  2. Press/hold top button till slider appears, slide it to turn off your iPhone completely.
  3. Then press/hold the top button to turn it back on.
  4. Update to the latest iOS version.
  5. Sign out of iCloud and then log in.
  6. Settings > me > iCloud > at the bottom tap Sign out > enter password > Turn off.
  7. Tap Sign Out on upper right corner > Sign out again to confirm. Wait a while then Settings > Sign in to your iPhone > enter Apple ID and password > tap Sign in on top right > Enter your iphone passcode.
  8. Make sure iCloud is still working
  9. Reset your Apple ID password
  10. Settings > me > Password & Settings > Choose change password
  11. Enter current password, new password, and confirm > tap change or change password.
  12. Reset network settings. Settings > General > Scroll down and set Reset > tap Reset Network Settings.
  13. (Their last choice is to restore your iPhone without data loss. Uh-uh, I'm not doin' this.)

From MakeUseOf

  1. Restart your iPhone. See step #1 in previous article.
  2. Update iOS if it's not most recent
  3. Update your apps. Manually (via App Store) or automatically (Settings > me > iTunes and App Store, look under Automatic Downloads section, toggle Updates to on.)
  4. Force-close an app: double-press home button, swipe up on the app to force-close.
  5. Reset network settings (see step #6 in previous article)
  6. Reset all settings or do a Factory reset. I'm not going to describe this as it's not something I plan to do; visit the article and look at their steps 6 and 7 if you feel you need this.
