Microsoft Remote Desktop app

Microsoft Remote Desktop client for iOS allows users to connect to Azure Virtual Desktop, Windows 365, admin-provided virtual apps and desktops, or remote PCs. It has multitouch support, audio and video streaming, and more. Yesterday, Microsoft released a new update for Microsoft Remote Desktop client for iOS devices. This Version 10.5.1 update brings a much-awaited feature to this app.

With this update, Microsoft Remote Desktop for iOS supports displaying the session on an external monitor. If you are using an iPad or iPhone, you can use AirPlay or a physical cable to connect to an external monitor. If the monitor is detected, you can now have remote desktop session in the external monitor.

This update also adds support for location redirection if you have access to device location and Windows 11 or later on the server.
