The Microsoft Remote Desktop app has been updated with iPad mouse and trackpad support.
Use Microsoft Remote Desktop for iOS to connect to a remote PC or virtual apps and desktops made available by your admin. With Microsoft Remote Desktop, you can be productive no matter where you are.
What’s New In This Version:
This is the update many of you have been waiting for! If you are using iPadOS 13.4 or later, you will now be able to control the remote session with a mouse or trackpad.
• 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.
We’ve also updated the Mouse Pointer mode right-click gesture to press-and-hold (not press-and-hold-and-release). And, on iPhone we’ve thrown in some taptic feedback when we detect the right-click gesture.
In addition, we’ve made 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, we added support for the Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) Spring 2020 Update.
