Difference between POP3 and IMAP
You will choose either POP3 or IMAP when setting up your email client. Both connect to a mail server so you can read your emails.

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) Using IMAP, you read email on the mail server; email is not downloaded to your local device, it remains on the mail server.
POP3 (Post Office Protocol) Using POP3, you download and save email onto your local device (computer, tablet or phone).

Which is better?
IMAP is better if you are accessing email from multiple devices, such as a work computer, tablet and phone. POP3 works better if you are using one device, but have a large number of emails and wish to save your email locally. POP3 is also better if you have a poor internet connection or need to access your emails offline.

Here are email settings for G Suite or Gmail users. On iPhone select Google to setup your email.
