Remote access to Windows using iPhone and iPad has become much more convenient. Added support for mice, trackpads and much more

Microsoft has released an update to the Microsoft Remote Desktop application for Apple mobile devices.

This is the first update to Microsoft Remote Desktop for iOS starting in mid-2018. Microsoft even underlines the change list: “This is an update that many of you have been waiting for!”

The main innovations concern tablets based on iPadOS 13.4 and more recent versions of the OS. From these devices, you can now control a remote session using a mouse or touchpad – support for Apple Magic Mouse 2 and other mice, Apple Magic Trackpad 2, support for CTRL, ALT and SHIFT keys, while simultaneously clicking on the mouse button and touch panel. Trackpads also support Tap-to-Click (touch to simulate clicking).

Mouse Pointer mode has been updated (mouse pointer gesture mode). For the iPhone, a tactile response was added when determining the gesture of a right-click. And this is not all the innovations of the update.

Microsoft Remote Desktop allows you to connect to a remote computer or virtual applications and desktops. The application supports working with professional or corporate editions of Windows and Windows Server, such as Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise or Windows Server, but is not available for Windows 10 Home users.
