If you use Dell Mobile Connect, the company's software for letting you use your smartphone on your PC, it just got a whole lot better for iPhones. As Dell previewed at CES, the app will now let you mirror your iPhones screen and transfer files on your PC. The update is rolling out now as part of Dell Mobile Connect version 3.0 on the Microsoft Store and Apple App Store (via Windows Blog Italia).
Previously, only Android phones were able to use screen mirroring and file transfers with Dell Mobile Connect. This update brings both platforms in line, allowing you to do more with your phone without taking it out of your pocket. Importantly, it also gives Dell Mobile Connect a leg up of Microsoft's Your Phone app when it comes to iOS devices.
Here's a look at the full release notes for Dell Mobile Connect 3.0:
- File Transfer for photos and videos is now available for iPhone users.
- Mirroring is now available for iPhone users.
- MMS support for image or videos for Android users.
- No need to keep the Dell Mobile Connect iPhone app in the foreground for sending SMS.
If you're using a Dell or Alienware PC and want to give Dell Mobile Connect 3.0 a shot, you can grab the 3.0 updates from the Microsoft Store and the Apple App Store now.
The Dell Mobile Connect app allows you to access your phone from your PC. You can mirror your screen, send and receive text messages, and even transfer files.
