Teamviewer 14 and iOS12.3.1 firmware limitations

I have an iPad Air with iOS 12.3.1 and have installed TeamViewer14 and Quicksupport

I can connect the computer and the iPad, but the remote control doesn't work, because of firmware limitations. What is this about, and how can I activate the remote control?

Re: Teamviewer 14 and iOS12.3.1 firmware limitations

Hello @tastom,

With an iPad you can connect and remote control a computer (PC or MacOS).
If it is a MacOS using Mojave, feel free to check this article to allow remote control: How to control a Mac running macOS 10.14 Mojave

However, with this same iPad, you cannot control an iPhone or another iPad.

For iOs device, only screen sharing is available.

I hope this could help. If not, do not hesitate to ask your questions here.

Cheers

Jean

Hi @tastom 

Thank you for your post. 

As my colleague already mentioned:

This is also applicable if you connect from a Windows device to an iPhone/iPad. 

In this article, you will find all relevant information about iOS screen sharing: How can I share the screen on my iPad/iPhone with TeamViewer?

Wish you a great day and all the best,
Natascha
