Microsoft’s Remote Desktop for iOS has received an update, taking the app to version 10.2.4.

The update brings a number of improvements to the connection bar, making it more usable on iPad and large iPhones.

See the full changelog below:


  • Connection bar improvements – We have made some changes to the connection bar, which is part of the user experience in the session.
    • The connection bar can be collapsed by moving it to one of the four corners of the screen.
    • On iPads and large-screen iPhones, you can dock the connection bar to the left or right edge of the screen.
    • A long press on the maximize button in the connection bar brings up a panel with a zoom slider.
    • The new zoom slider controls the magnification level of the session in both touch and mouse pointer mode.
  • Fixed bugs related to accessibility.
  • The client now validates the PC name in the Add / Edit PC UI to ensure it does not contain invalid characters.
  • Resolved an issue where the UI would stop resolving the workspace name during subscription.
