Yahoo Mail not working for many on iOS, but a fix is in the works

Yahoo Mail not working for many on iOS, but a fix is in the works
Soon after Apple released iOS 11, many iPhone and iPad users have started to experience issues accessing their emails via Yahoo. These problems have become more serious lately and many iOS users can use Yahoo Mail any longer.

A few days ago, Yahoo issued an official statement acknowledging these issues and promising a fix very soon. Also, the company offered iOS users a workaround that will allow them to continue to use the Yahoo email service.

So, if you've been trying to check your emails using the native app on the iOS and failed, you should download and install the Yahoo Mail app from the App Store to keep using the service.

Otherwise, you'll have to wait until Yahoo releases that promised fix at some point. Unfortunately, this seems a much older problem, as the company admitted similar issues started back in December.

Will iOS users have to wait a few months for a fix or Yahoo will be capable to deliver that fix sooner? I guess only time will tell.

I think it was Yahoo! fault because it didn't work on Samsung Mail yesterday. Now is restored.

Push email stopped with iOS 10. Heck - even Gmail doesn't push anymore. VERY frustrating. But Yahoo email definitely has had problems over the years on iOS. (and in general - LOL) All the more reason it's only my subscription email that I use over and over. Eventually - I may change those to Gmail or Outlook or even iCloud. I just have to make sure to label them all.

Stupid, the built in app works perfectly. Who downloads an app when the stock apps work fine? It won't change how an email looks. Also the Yahoo Mail is horrible on an android phone like the S8, so I stay away from that app when I can.
