Microsoft: Remote Desktop App for iOS updated

[German]Microsoft has updated the Remote Desktop App for iOS to version 10.1.0. However, iPadOS 13.4 or higher is required as the operating system on Apple devices.


The Apple Store lists the following improvements for the new app version.

  • Support for the Apple Magic Mouse 2 and Apple Magic Trackpad 2 (left-click, left-drag, right-click, right-drag, horizontal and vertical scrolling, and local zooming).
  • Support for external mice (left-click, left-drag, right-click, right-drag, middle-click, and vertical scrolling).
  • Support for CTRL, ALT and SHIFT key state with mouse and trackpad clicks (enables features such as multi-select and range-select).
  • Support for the trackpad "Tap-to-Click" feature.

Microsoft has also updated the Mouse Pointer mode right-click gesture to press-and-hold (not press-and-hold-and-release). And, on iPhone they have thrown in some taptic feedback when the app detects the right-click gesture. There are also the following improvements:

  • Added an option to disable NLA enforcement under iOS Settings > RD Client.
  • Mapped Control+Shift+Escape to CTRL+SHIFT+ESC (where Escape is generated using a remapped key on iPadOS or Command+.)
  • Mapped Command+F to CTRL+F.
  • Fixed an issue where the SwiftPoint middle button was not working (iPadOS 13.3.1 or earlier, and iOS).
  • Fixed some bugs which prevented handling of the "rdp:" URI.
  • Addressed an issue where the in-session Immersive Switcher UI showed stale app entries if a disconnect was server-initiated.

And finally, Microsoft has added support for the Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) Spring 2020 Update. (via)
