Press Next at the top of your screen again.

Select the Google Apps services (Mail, Calendar, and Contacts) you want to sync.

Press Save at the top of your screen.

That's it! You can now access Google Apps from your iPhone. If you have Push enabled on the phone, synchronization starts automatically. You can also just open the Mail, Calendar or Contacts app and wait a few seconds to start a sync.
