    Hi Everyone,

    So I've switched to apple.

    The one thing I miss is being able to plug in my phone to my work pc through usb and have full control over it.

    I don't have access to wifi at work so would need a way to do this on ios with usb.

    Does anyone know of an app or program that I can do this with?

    What are you trying to do? Control your phone I don’t understand. Are you trying to use your phone on your pc?

    When connecting an iPhone to a PC it’s usually to connect to iTunes and nothing else that I know of.

    Welcome to iMore. I'm not sure plugging a phone into a PC via USB gives you full control over it..mine doesn't. Maybe a better explanation might let us know what you're trying to do. Enjoy the forum.

    Apologies if I didn’t explain very well.

    With my android phone I was able to use a program called [redacted]. Phone would be plugged in through usb and I would have full control over the phone from my pc so I was able to use my phone without touching the phone.

    I hope I’ve explained it a bit better

    I don’t believe there are any apps for what you are looking to accomplish. If you are jail broken I have a link below that might interest you.

    Thank you

    I’ve looked at apowersoft but I don’t have WiFi access at work unfortunately.

    From what I’ve read about Veency it doesn’t work with iOS 12 but I may be wrong

    There is an app in the App Store, Team Viewer, might be what you are looking for. Here is their website:

    I've had a good scope through Teamviewer website and I can't seem to see how you can control a mobile phone through team viewer, you can view an iOS screens but from what I gather you can't control it.

    As a former Android user, I think I know which program you were using, or, there were several of these. Unfortunately, Apple doesn't have the same mindset as Google when it comes to openness of its software. It's the trade-off you make; privacy and less malware, or doing cool things like controlling your phone with your PC.

    I'm seriously contemplating going back to android if I can't find a solution.

    Didn't think I'd miss being able to control my phone through my pc lol

    Is it just normal customer services I would ring or is there another department?

    Regular customer service they will direct you to the correct department. From my research I really don’t believe there is a way to do what you want.
