Gmail advertises an app for my non-existent iPhone

    Today, I opened my Gmail (on my desktop browser), and received a message advertising Google's Gmail app — for my iPhone! (See attached screenshot.)

    I've been with Google for years. I've used Android and Gmail for years. Google knows that I already use its Gmail app. Google knows that I don't have an iPhone. (Heck, Google knows everything else about me!)

    So, why is it sending me adverts for my non-existent iPhone? I tried, as an experiment, asking for the link, which it duly sent to my Android phone. The SMS reads:

    > [LINK WORKS ONLY ON YOUR iPHONE] Here's the latest version of Gmail: https://goo.gl/Lttfjw

    Why does Google suddenly think that I have an iPhone?

    I got the same thing on both of my Gmails. I thought the same thing, Google KNOWS I don't have an iPhone. :rolleyes:
