Dell Mobile Connect lets iPhone users transfer files to Windows PCs

in General Discussion
The newly available Dell Mobile Connect iOS app boasts new features that allow users to drag-and-drop files between a Windows PC and an iPhone, as well as get iOS notifications on a Windows desktop.

Along with drag-and-drop file transfer, Dell Mobile Connect allows users to mirror the device's display and access apps directly from their Windows desktop. While available to Android users in the past, the features are new to iOS as of Wednesday.

Dell Mobile Connect is billed as a way for users to avoid "splitting their attention" between the PC and smartphone while working or playing a game. Notifications for calls, texts, and other alerts that appear on the smartphone already appear within the software, with it also able to handle phone calls.

There are a few requirements for users who wish to use the service. The iOS app requires iOS 11.0 or later and is only compatible with the iPhone. Additionally, it only works with Dell notebooks manufactured in 2018 or later and requires Bluetooth. Supported laptop ranges include Alienware, G Series, Inspiron, Vostro, and XPS.

The Dell Mobile Connect app is free to download from the App Store.

    Well, at least we know Apple’s ecosystem cannot be ignored by big business anymore. There are too many people using iOS to be ignored like in the old days of the Macintosh. And we Apple users owe it all to the iPhone. I’m also seeing more retail websites offering online ApplePay for payment. Of course PayPal still dominates but the option to use ApplePay is there. It’s good to be an Apple user these days and I go back to 1982 on that experience.

    Shame it only works on some Dell Laptops, not all Windows PCs
