Great! Now your Support agent can see your iPhone screen.

Note: iPhone does not allow the Support agent to take remote control over your phone. So you will need to have the Agent over a voice call & do things he instructs you to do ( as he can see remotely what you are doing now ). If the connection gets disconnected, please follow the above steps again.

Tip: Be patient & give the agent time to analyze & help you out. If the connection breaks due to poor internet connection, keep reconnecting & help the agent to solve your issue. All the best 🙂

By now your agent should be able to see your Mobile screen on his desktop ( via. remote share ). Just confirm with him if he can see your screen.

FAQ:

* My internet connection got cut in-between & the session ended. What to do?

No worries. This can happen often during the entire trouble shooting session. If your session has ended, call your agent and ask him to establish a new session again. Once the new session is established, you will see the text DISPLAY VIEWING STARTED.

Sometimes the connection can interrupted many times & can be frustrating. Be patient with your tech support agent & help him to get your issue fixed 🙂
