Google has finally delivered an update that has been in demand for a couple of years by the users of iOS devices.
The company is finally allowing users to delete their Gmail mails configured on the iOS mail client.
Until now, emails deleted in the client were archived online on Gmail.
Users can now set the delete action to actually delete the emails by configuring a setting at http://m.google.com/sync from their device’s mobile browser.
Starting today, you can change the default behavior by visiting m.google.com/sync from your iPod, iPhone or iPad browser (this will not work from the desktop) and enable “Delete Email As Trash.” Once enabled, the delete button on iOS Mail app will now move the message to Trash instead of archiving it. If you want to archive, just move the messages to All Mail.
This means that archiving message has just become a bit harder. Good thing Google now has an official app for Gmail for iOS devices.
