Hi TeamViewer Community,
I would like to share some exciting news with you from yesterdays´s press release about TeamViewers official iOS Mobile Screen Sharing capabilities.
I am quoting our official press release:
London, UK, 29 August, 2017 – TeamViewer®, a leading global software provider for digital networking and collaboration, announced today the first go-to-market software giving all iOS 11 mobile device users the ability to share screens. TeamViewer’s software combines enterprise readiness and security assurances for individuals to collaborate efficiently and provide support securely, enhancing productivity and communication across multiple offices around the world. This industry-first true iOS screen sharing capability is a now available as a preview for all users.
“TeamViewer prides itself on being an industry innovator, creating remote support software and business collaboration tools that meet the growing demands of SMBs and enterprise businesses,” said Andreas König, CEO of TeamViewer. “With the addition of iOS screen sharing capabilities, we break down the barriers to enhance collaboration, by unifying platforms across departments and global offices, expanding opportunities to increase productivity and effectively communicating and collaborating with one another.
With Apple’s dominance in the smartphone industry, holding 79.2 percent of global smartphone profits last year, according to Strategy Analytics and shipping more than 41 million units in the second quarter of 2017, according to IDC , iOS screen sharing is TeamViewer’s most requested product feature to date. The feature will be particularly beneficial to users who need to provide remote support to iPhone and iPad owners, and users seeking to receive technical support.
As the first in industry to offer an official screen sharing capability, that launches with the release of Apple’s iOS 11 software, users now benefit from TeamViewer’s best of breed capabilities. Whether using their laptops, smartphones, or tablets, TeamViewer’s iPhone and iPad screen sharing capabilities depend on the availability of Apple’s iOS 11 software.
“The way in which enterprises and SMBs need to operate and function has drastically changed over the last decade,” said Rob Brothers, Vice President of Support Services at IDC. “With the global economy in full swing, businesses are looking to streamline operations and hire a workforce that is globally diverse and mobile. Innovative businesses such as TeamViewer provide the ability to share your screen across multiple devices, from iOS to an android mobile device, which provides individuals quick access, flexibility and a secure environment to collaborate.”

Isn´t this exciting? Please share your thoughts about iOS screensharing with us!
All the best, Esther
The press announcment says it's now avilable for all users. I don't see it in the iOS app store. How do we get it?
The press announcement says it is available when iOS 11 has launched. This happens earliest on the keynote for iPhone 7S/7S plus and iPhone 8 (maybe around 12.09.2017) ;-)
yes that´s right. We will launch the QuickSupport app together with iOS 11.
We are looking forward to it! All the best, Esther
Just tested the new version. It does work... but I was surprised that you can only share the screen, all other features are not supported when doing that, for example there is no chat. Are you planning to improve overall experience when screen sharing for iOS 11 or are there some tech limitations that prevent it?
