8- Eighth step:

Select the type of account you want to configure in your Apple iPhone 6s, IMAP or POP.
What differentiates an IMAP account from a POP or POP3?
When you set up an IMAP account in your iPhone 6s you keep a copy of the emails in the cloud, that is, in the mail server.
If you delete an email or move it from a folder in your Apple iPhone 6s that change will also occur on the server and therefore on all devices that are configured with the same email account.

On the other hand, if you set your Apple with a POP or POP3 account, the emails are downloaded to the device and can be deleted, read or changed without affecting the other devices that have the same email account.
Usually this configuration is used for shared accounts in which several people want to keep the emails that have been read by others as NOT read or for those who have the email in the mobile and on the computer and do not want the changes to be reflected in the other device.
