Want to remote into an iPhone or iPad?

Note: Apple is reviewing our iOS remote implementation at the moment and it is currently unavailable in the App Store. You can continue to use SOS with Mobile to remotely access Android mobile devices and Windows/Mac computers (but *not* iOS devices). We are working with Apple to find a resolution.

Are you trying to remote into an iOS device to view its screen remotely (no control)? If so, first make sure you have a trial or a subscription to the recently launched Splashtop On-Demand Support (SOS) with Mobile. If you have our previous Splashtop On-Demand Support (SOS) which has no mobile support, please contact our sales team to upgrade. Email sales@splashtop.com or call +1 (408) 861-1088 x125.

    @All
    Apple removed our app. We are working with Apple to address its concern around enabling Airplay across network that Splashtop has invented.
