If you didn’t know, you can even control your iPhone remotely from a Mac. Apple’s solution to the problem of controlling an iPhone from a Mac is in a world where seamless connectivity is paramount. Apple’s products integrate well with each other, especially the iPhone and the Mac.

While many third-party tools are available that let you remotely control your iPhone from your Mac, Apple also provides its Switch Control feature to do the same. Whether you’re trying to control your iPhone from the convenience of your Mac or want to learn how to use it remotely, this article has you covered.

Remotely Control your iPhone From Mac Using Switch Control.

Apple has a built-in utility in its ecosystem to make it easy for users to control their Apple devices, including the iPhone and the Mac. This utility is called “Switch Control.”

All you need to do is set it up, and you should be good to go! Follow the steps below to set up Switch Control to control your iPhone from your Mac remotely:

  • First, make sure they are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Then, use the same Apple ID to sign into iCloud on both devices.
  • Next, click on the Apple menu in the top left corner of your screen.
  • Click on “System Settings” or ”System Preferences.”
  • From the sidebar, click on “Accessibility.”
  • Click on “Switch Control.” If you can’t find the option here, click on “Accessibility Shortcut” and then select “Switch Control.”
  • Click the option next to “Allow platform switching to control your computer.”
  • The Mac’s default Switch Control Home panel interface will load. Click on “Devices” and then select your iPhone.
  • Click on “Connect” to finish the setup.
  • Now, you can use your Mac’s switch to remotely control the iPhone.

Mac’s switch

As Switch Control scans the iPhone’s screen, you can see the iPhone’s screen on your Mac and use the Switch Control Hone panel to enter text, choose menus, dial numbers, and more. Select the appropriate options from the Switch Control Home panel to control your iPhone.

The constraint to using Apple’s Switch Control is that both devices must be on the same Wi-Fi network for this feature to work. So, this feature can be helpful if your iPhone is near or lying in one room of your house and you are in another.

How to Stop Switch Control

It is effortless to stop the Switch Control when you want to. Press and hold the switch for 10 seconds straight, and your Mac will stop controlling your iPhone. Alternatively, you can also stop Switch Control by following the steps below:

  1. Go to your Mac’s Switch Control Hone panel to turn off Switch Control.
  2. Click on “Devices” and then select your iPhone.
  3. Finally, click on “Stop Using Device.”

If you want to disable Switch Control altogether, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Apple menu in the top left corner of your screen.
  2. Click on “System Settings” or ”System Preferences.”
  3. From the sidebar, click on “Accessibility.”
  4. Click on “Switch Control” and turn it off.

Final Words
