Do you want to control your iPad from your iPhone? In this video, I will show you how to do just that using the Apple Accessibility feature Control Nearby Devices. This feature allows you to access your iPad’s Home Screen, App Switcher, Notification Center, and Control Center from your iPhone. Not only that, but you can also use Siri on the iPad and control media.

I will walk you through the entire process, from setting up the feature to using it effectively. You will learn what the requirements are and how to make sure everything is set up correctly.

This feature can be incredibly useful for those who have difficulty accessing their iPad directly or for those who simply want the convenience of being able to use their iPhone to control their iPad. With Control Nearby Devices, you can do everything you need to do on your iPad without ever having to touch it.

So if you’re interested in learning more about this feature and how to use it effectively, be sure to check out this video. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
