On my iphone, I want to see separate inboxes, not "All inboxes"

In the gmail app on my iPhone, I have four personal and business emails set up.  I'd like to be able to see them each separately.

When I open gmail in my Chrome browser, I can "Add account" to see my separate inboxes in separate tabs in my browser.

So on my iPhone I'd like to be able to do the same thing.  I'm sure it used to be this way, but now I'm seeing "All Inboxes".

Set up different iPhone Email Accounts.  

Settings, Passwords and Accounts, See Accounts and set up the email addresses.

Once done, I suggest restarting the iPhone and then you will need to select the Account when you access your email.

Please let us know

Hi John,  
I do have four different iPhone email accounts.
I did restart the phone, and the problem persists.
The problem doesn't happen in the iOS "Mail" application.  I'll upload a screen snap of those settings.
But I prefer to use the Gmail application which I've downloaded.  It has a number of features that I like better than the iOS "Mail" app.  Except for this one.

iPhone Email is a pretty simple tool, so use the Gmail app instead.  That would be a better approach. I haven't used it but it should set up the same way

Thanks, I agree.  My point is, the gmail app is great except all my inboxes are merged together in one.

(I'm going to be out of my office for a few hours starting now.  I'll reply when I get back in.)

Thanks

Did the article on the Gmail app work?  

If not, you may need to use the simple Apple Mail App.

So ... I removed all but one email account from the gmail app.  Then I re-added them all again.  Now it works as expected, and I can choose to see the inbox for one account at a time.

I think I uncovered a "bug" in the gmail app.

Thanks so much for your help, John.

My problem was, I'm doing a presentation using this iPhone tomorrow, and I don't want my other personal stuff showing up in the presentation.  Now the problem is fixed.

Speaking of which ... this conversation is public, isn't it.  I just realized, I shouldn't have uploaded those two screen snaps.  They contain personal information.  Hmmm...

Thanks John.

Do you know ... is there any way I can either delete those two attachments or otherwise make this question private?  Or where can I go to ask that question?
