Apple and Microsoft haven't always played nicely with each other, but these days it's a lot easier to live with one foot in Windows 10 and another in iOS.
From apps to extend your display to cloud syncing across devices, these are the best apps to use if you're on iOS and Windows 10.
These apps aren't just types of software that are made by Microsoft and available on iOS. These are apps or services that bring your devices closer together.
Summing things up
If you want to know about the best Microsoft apps available on iOS you can check out this guide. iPads and iPhones have some of the best screens around, and you can use your iOS device's screen as a second monitor for your PC using Duet Display.
The app is made by former Apple engineers who make it simple to extend your PC to your iOS devices. The connection supports full touch support and extends your display at 60fps. In addition to downloading the Duet Display app for $9.99 from the App Store, you'll also have to download a free piece of software on your PC from Duet Display's website.
If you prefer a wireless connection between your iOS and Windows 10 devices, you'll want to check out AirServer. It allows you to mirror your iOS device's display onto another device through Airplay, Chromecast, and Miracast.
AirServer is available on Windows 10 and Xbox One, but it's important to know that the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions of this app are completely separate regarding payment.
Part 1: Why I can't run iOS apps on Windows?
The Xbox One version costs $19.99, and the Windows 10 version costs $29.99. I reviewed AirServer for the Xbox One last year and still use it on a regular basis.
I've found that AirPlay works better than Miracast and I often break out an iPad or Mac if I want to view content on our living room TV. If you need to sign into your Microsoft account often, you can download the Microsoft Authenticator app to improve your account security.
To use the app you need to setup two-step verication for your Microsoft account and then you receive notifcations on your iOS device to complete future logins.
