Remote Access An iPhone or iPad Using TeamViewer QuickSupport

You can now share your iPhone or iPad screen to any computer or mobile device worldwide with TeamViewer. It is important to note that this method will only allow you to share your screens and not control your iPhone remotely. It works from iOS 11 and requires that you install the TeamViewer QuickSupport app on the iPhone or iPad that you wish to control.

How to Set up TeamViewer QuickSupport on an iPhone or iPad

  • Install the TeamViewer QuickSupport app on your iOS device
  • Open the app and forward the ID to the pc you want your iPhone to be controlled from
  • Confirm the session once the PC connects
  • Swipe your screen from downward up to access the Control Center
  • Tap the recording icon located at the bottom
  • Select TeamViewer
  • Tap Start Broadcast

The iPhone is now accessible remotely from a computer and you can easily instruct someone what to do while keeping track of progress. This is very effective during troubleshooting.

File sharing

You can also transfer files between your iPhone or iPad and a PC or mobile device using the QuickSupport iOS Files App integration. Once installed, simply add files to the folder and wait for them to sync. The other party should access them immediately they sync. Whoever you are sharing with will only be able to view the files you share and nothing else.

TeamViewer QuickSupport is perfect for tech support and anybody who wants to access an iPhone or iPad remotely. It works fast and all you need is an app and internet connection. Although you can’t control an iPhone remotely with it, you can still get your point across to someone easily and view things such as battery percentage among others.
