Dell To Let Users Interact With Your iPhone Apps From Your PC

Published

on

Dell launched its Mobile Connect app in 2018 to let users connect their Dell computer to their phones to respond to phone calls and texts directly from their PC. Now the company has announced that now you’ll be able to wirelessly transfer photos and videos and interact with apps from your iOS device while using the Mobile Connect starting this spring. These features were previously exclusive to using Mobile connect with Android devices.

App mirroring seems pretty straightforward as shown in the video on the company’s website. Using the Mobile connect app, you can scroll through and interact with things in the app, just like you would if you were using the app itself. Since the app will only allow transferring photos and videos between your iOS device and your Dell PC, you should go for something like iCloud Drive or Google Drive to transfer files back and forth.

Dell informed that the new integrations with iOS will work with XPS, Inspiron, Vostro. Alienware, and G Series PC’s from January 2018 or later. But it didn’t mention anything about the company’s Latitude laptops. The company mentioned that more than 150 million calls and texts have been sent via the software, with half of those happening via Apple Inc. devices.

These features will roll out in the coming months as a software update. Dell, currently the third-largest PC manufacturer sees this as a way to make more people buy its products. Apple has offered deep integration between its Mac computers and iPhones for years like transfer, messaging and calls but never a mirroring feature.

The Mobile Connect is already available for iOS without these features. You can download it to get calls and notifications on your Dell PC.
