Gmail is, hands down, the most useful email service of the world. Almost everyone has at least one Gmail account. But Gmail is much more than that. It has evolved and now provides access to a lot of features like Google Drive, where you can use Google docs. It might not look like a big deal, but it is. With Google docs, you can sort out the compatibility problems between Mac and Windows.

Unfortunately, almost everything nowadays is password protected. Your phone, bank account, PC, social networks, and, of course, email accounts. Therefore, it is very easy to either mix or forgets all these passwords. Or it might come the day that you wish to change one of them.

Open the Gmail app on your iPhone. Head to the top left corner, and you will see a tree horizontal lines icon; click it.
Once the drop-down menu unfolds, scroll until its end and click on the Settings option. It is the second option from the bottom up.
Now, inside the settings screen, choose the account that you wish to change its password.
