Sneak preview: Try out TeamViewer’s new iOS 11 screen sharing feature for free, until October 30.
Great news for all iPhone and iPad users with the new iOS 11, as well as their tech supporters! TeamViewer QuickSupport now offers a new way to share your device’s screens with speed and ease.
Up until now, screen sharing your iPhone or iPad was a daunting task. To screen-share iPhones and iPads, you had to plug them into a Mac via USB, screen sharing that to another Mac, and thus be able to see the mobile device and provide help.
Especially when speaking about more than one or a few devices, say in a company, for educational purposes, or as a professional IT supporter, the procedure simply isn’t feasible as it is, namely too indirect and hard to scale up.
That’s why internet forums are full of people searching for better ways to share the screens of iOS devices. But today, TeamViewer can gladly announce that the times of over-complicated iOS screen sharing are finally over!
Irrespective of whether you just want to show your buddy some cool new iOS 11 features or there are hundreds of iOS devices in your company that must be maintained, you can breathe a sigh of relief.
With TeamViewer, it’s now easier than ever before to share your iOS 11 screens – and thanks to our extensive cross-platform capabilities, you can even do so using your Windows PC or Android tablet.
