Connect to Azure Virtual Desktop with the iOS client
Applies to: iOS 13.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
This content applies to Azure Virtual Desktop with Azure Resource Manager Azure Virtual Desktop objects. If you're using Azure Virtual Desktop (classic) without Azure Resource Manager objects, see this article.
You can access Azure Virtual Desktop resources from your iOS device with our downloadable client. This guide will tell you how to set up the iOS client.
Install the iOS client
To get started, download and install the client on your iOS device.
Subscribe to a feed
Subscribe to the feed provided by your admin to get the list of managed resources you can access on your iOS device.
To subscribe to a feed:
- In the Connection Center, tap +, and then tap Add Workspace.
- Enter the feed URL into the Feed URL field. The feed URL can be either a URL or an email address.
- If you use a URL, use the one your admin gave you. Normally, the URL is https://rdweb.wvd.microsoft.com/api/arm/feeddiscovery.
- To use email, enter your email address. This tells the client to search for a URL associated with your email address if your admin configured the server that way.
- To connect through the US Gov portal, use https://rdweb.wvd.azure.us/api/arm/feeddiscovery.
- Tap Next.
- Provide your credentials when prompted.
- For User name, give the user name with permission to access resources.
- For Password, give the password associated with the user name.
- You may also be prompted to provide additional factors if your admin configured authentication that way.
- Tap Save.
After this, the Connection Center should display the remote resources.
Once subscribed to a feed, the feed's content will update automatically on a regular basis. Resources may be added, changed, or removed based on changes made by your administrator.
