Now, Apple's native iOS applications will be able to access data from Gmail, Calendar, and Contacts. Users who are enrolled in Advanced Protection will receive sign-in instructions once they sign into iOS apps with their Google account.

The program, introduced last October, is designed for users with special security needs, such as journalists, activists, or political operatives. It includes other safeguards, such as the requirement to use a physical security key to sign into your account after you've logged out or when signing in on a new device.
