How to screen share with iOS and macOS to help friends and family with new devices

How to screen share with iOS and macOS to help friends and family with new devices

 

Over that last month your friends and family have probably purchased or been gifted a range of new devices, and odds may be good that you’re the go-to for tech support. Sometimes it works to problem solve by voice or text message when you aren’t with the user in need, but it’s often better to see what they’re seeing and also have some remote control access. Keep reading after the break for three ways to remotely help others more efficiently.

The cleanest way to see and even control another persons device (outside of paid software like logmein) is if they have a Mac. For options two and three we’ll walk through how to screen share with Macs, iPhones, iPads, and iPods without any third-party software. My favorite trick is using QuickTime on a Mac to screen share an iOS device (skip towards the bottom if you want to do this). However, if they only have iOS devices this first option may be obvious, but is still useful.

FaceTime

Instead of struggling through a phone call, I often forget to have the other person take a FaceTime call on a secondary iOS device, and point it towards the device they are struggling with. Even though this doesn’t provide the ability to control their device, it still helps you see more quickly what is going wrong. It’s also useful to see how the person needs to adjust how they’re trying to navigate, tap, interact, etc. with their device. I’ve found it’s nice for the other person to have an adjustable stand or tripod to keep the FaceTime device steady and at a good angle. KCOOL’s octopus style tripod is great for portability and flexibility and AmazonBasics Lightweight Tripod is an awesome value for a full size option which pairs well with Ipow’s iPad Tripod Mount Adapter and other accessories.

Mac to Mac Screen Sharing

Providing support to others can be even smoother when you can take control of their device. When you do Mac to Mac screen sharing this is an option, you can also share your screen instead of seeing theirs. To do this, make sure the ‘Screen Sharing’ box is checked in System Preferences → Sharing. Also, if the Apple ID they use for iCloud and Messages on the Mac is different, you’ll need to have both emails on their contact card. Here are two ways to start screen sharing:

Do a Spotlight search for ‘Screen Sharing’ and launch it.

i

You’ll then see a dialog box with the option to enter the Apple ID of the person you’d like to screen share with.

ii

On the receiving end they’ll see this invitation.

3

Make sure they select ‘Control My Screen.’

permission

 

The alternate way to start screen sharing is through Messages on macOS. Click ‘Details’ in the top right corner of the message of the person you’d like to screen share with and select ‘Invite to share my screen’ or ‘Ask to share screen.’

1

They will receive the same accept or decline notification as above and also accept your ability to control their screen. Once you are connected a FaceTime voice call will also automatically initiate and you’ll see everything on their screen.

Another useful trick is to open QuickTime Player and start a screen recording (File → New Screen Recording) so they can revisit the guidance anytime they want.

5

When you’re ready to end the session, you can click ‘Screen Sharing’ next to the  in the menu bar and select ‘Quit Screen Sharing.’

6

Screen Share iOS devices using Macs

This is a helpful modified use of a developer feature that Apple has built into QuickTime Player that came along with Yosemite. When you use the Screen Sharing Mac app with this screen casting feature option you can see everything happening on an iOS device as long as both parties have Macs.

First, start a screen sharing session. Have the person you’re helping plug in their iOS device via USB cable to the Mac that they are screen sharing with. Lastly, launch QuickTime Player and click ‘File’ and ‘New Movie Recording.’

Once the movie window opens, select the drop down arrow next the record icon and click the iOS device you’d like to see, then click record.

Here is a snapshot of what you’ll see on their Mac as you screen share.

After you’ve solved all their issues, you can even help them save the footage so they can review it later and remember the solution again in the future.

      The first episode of Apple’s ‘Planet of the Apps’
      will debut to everyone
       
      Apple’s first foray into original content will debut later tonight, according to a report from Reuters. “Planet of the Apps” has long been teased by Apple, but the first episode will finally be made available for streaming tonight at 9PM PT/midnight ET.
        The first episode will be free for anyone to stream, but subsequent releases will be limited to Apple Music subscribers. Apple will release new episodes on a weekly basis, hitting Apple Music every Tuesday. The public debut follows a screening that will take place at WWDC tonight at 6:30 PT, so developers will get a brief jump on the rest of us.
      In an interview with Reuters, Apple’s Eddy Cue explained that Planet of the Apps centers around taking an idea and turning it into something real:
      The first two episodes of Planet of the Apps will show developers presenting applications for online shopping, campus safety and a school backpack and facing struggles such as increased competition and pressure from investors.
      Planet of the Apps will be marketed heavily, according to Cue. The show will be advertised on the Apple.com homepage, in iTunes, and various other places. “All of our customers are going to be exposed to this in one way or another,” Cue said.
      Are you going to watch Apple’s Planet of the Apps show this evening? Let us know down in the comments.
      Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day.

      Ahead of iOS 11, 32-bit applications stop
      appearing in App Store search results
       
      Ahead of WWDC kicking off tomorrow and the unveil of iOS 11, 32-bit applications have stopped appearing in App Store search results. This is the latest piece of evidence that suggests iOS 11 will drop support altogether for 32-bit applications when it’s unveiled next week to developers and to the general public later this fall.
        It was reported earlier this year that iOS 11 would drop support for 32-bit apps and iOS 10.3 includes a new alert for users when they open a 32-bit application. The pop up notification reads that the app must be updated by the developer or else it may not work with future versions of iOS.
      Now that 32-bit applications seemingly no longer appear in App Store search results, they are essentially nonexistent for most users as they are only accessible via direct links. The move will ideally push developers to update any 32-bit applications if they wish for their app to be readily available and to continue attracting new users (via TouchArcade).
      64-bit applications were first supported with the launch of the iPhone 5s in September of 2013 and since then, Apple has been gradually moving everything towards that standard. Starting in in February of 2015, Apple required developers to submit new applications with 64-bit support, while updates were required with 64-bit support in June 2015.
      With iOS 9, Apple began alerting users that if an app was 32-bit, it may slow down device performance.
      From iOS 10.2.1:
      And iOS 10.3 beta 1:
      It has also been reported that future processors from Apple won’t even include 32-bit support, which could free up perofrmance/die space for users and developers alike.
      Apple has drawn out the process of phasing out 32-bit applications likely in an effort to ensure that the end user isn’t affected by the move, with developers working to upgrade all apps to 64-bit instead. Apple has been working all around to remove “problematic and abandoned” applications from the App Store. The company detailed these goals in September of last year and the following month, Apple was said to have removed nearly 50,000 apps already.
      We’ll likely hear more about the future of 32-bit applications this week at WWDC 2017.
      Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day.
