Friend of mine upgraded her iPad 2 to iOS 6 and now cannot get her gmail and can only use iCloud email. I emailed her back stating that gmail, as far as I know, is Google mail and that may be the problem. I do not use iCloud for anything except to find my iPad and backup my contacts, so I don't know what to tell her with that. Is it because iPad no longer suppoorts gmail and the default is iCloud? And is her gmail problem due to its being Google mail? I am sooo not upgrading unless an app I need to use agsolutely needs to be updated and rhe update needs iOS 6. Thanks in advance for any information you can give me on this.
