iOS Remote Application Connection Instructions
Accessing the UMKC Remote Labs from an iOS device requires the use of the free
Microsoft Remote Desktop app (version 8.1.41 or higher).
Due to recent updates from Microsoft and Apple, Remote Applications will no longer open directly on iOS devices. If you select a Remote Application in Safari,
the browser will automatically redirect you to the full Remote Desktop.
