Real-time screen sharing for iPhones & iPads coming to TeamViewer thanks to iOS 11

With iOS 11, Apple will enable all iPhone and iPad users to natively record their screen and subsequently share the video clips with whoever they please, which is a really neat feature that would please a ton of users.

And TeamViewer, one of the most popular multi-platform screen-sharing services out and about, will be making full use of that feature by enabling iOS users to share the screens of their iDevices live, just like TeamViewer's other apps work. This way, remote support and troubleshooting will be as easy as abc: you simply share the screen of your iDevice with another party in real-time and you can get all the support you need to fix your issue. Don't get that mixed with remote control, though - you won't be able to do that.

The company boasts that it will be the first to bring such a neat functionality to iOS, which will become live as soon as iOS 11 goes available. We expect this to happen in mid-September, most likely right after Apple's upcoming keynote that will likely take place on September 12. Still, the feature is currently available as a demo for all Apple devices that are running on the iOS 11 beta.

TeamViewer's screen-sharing feature will be freely-available to anyone until October 31, 2017.

"WTF? Who uses screen shearing on a Smartphone or Tablet?" - Sheeple pre iOS 11.

I use it very often on Android/Samsung. I mostly use it when doing surveys. When I am doign a walk-through I will place a floorplan on the screen and have someone looking and as I walk I point where I am, so they can explain or ask question about what I see, when it comes to mounting locations. Also comes in handy when I open the camera and show them in real time too. Its a great feature if you have use for it as is with any other feature. But IOS should have had this years ago. Windows has had it since Windows 98SE and Android had it since 3.x. Apple YEARS behind as per usual.

So true, they're years behind in features, just outright laughable when their die hard fans try so hard to claim it's up to par with the competition in features. But alas, there's a reason why they're well defined in the dictionary.
