    w10 app--your phone for IOS


    Winver 1903; build 18362.418

    OK, supposedly the Your Phone app can now deal with iPhones. I have an iPhone 6L.
    So, I ran the app and was able to link my Iphone with my PC.
    I d/l the Edge and Cortana apps to my iPhone.
    I can send an Edge page from my iPhone to my PC.

    But what I really want to do is view my iPhone screen on my PC and use my PC as that screen (ie: read/send texts using my PC in particular).

    I just don't see how to do this. Any suggestions?

    You can send/receive text messages, read notifications. You can look at photos. That's about all for now. I do that with my Moto G4 Android phone.

    Soon you will be able to make calls from your PC via your phone. I don't believe you will ever be able to view you phone screen.

    Setup Your Phone so it's connected to your cell, then select Messages, click on New message.

    You can also see mine needs to be plugged is as the battery is low.

    Still nothing. When I click on Your Phone on my W10 PC, it says my iPhone is linked.
    But how do I see/write iPhone texts on my PC?

    It should bring up the window I posted. If not then it's not working for you.

    it does not have the photos/messages/notifications.
    It may work for an android, but not an iPhone

    This can only be done with Android OS devices connected to Windows. Apple does not have any plans to make iOS and iPADOS allowed to be accessed by non-Apple OS devices for calls and messaging.
