It is not possible to remotely control the screen of an iPad unless you jailbreak and install a VNC server as MattDMo suggested. This is because the security model in iOS does not allow an app to reach outside of its sandbox to control other apps or the springboard home screen. Apple does not provide any remote control functionality at the iOS level either. ...

My guess is that you’re using either a 2nd or 3rd generation Apple TV. The iTunes Remote and Apple TV Remote apps available from the iOS App Store will work with all Apple TV units going back to the Apple TV 2. However, the Apple TV Remote option you can configure as a control in Control Centre will currently only work with the Apple TV 4 and Apple TV 4K ...

I managed to control Apple TV from Mac with 1Keyboard application (http://www.eyalw.com/1keyboard) that turns Mac OS X into a bluetooth keyboard. Another app that does this is Type2Phone, probably there are even more of them.

No one actually fully answered the original question yet. Is there a tool I can use to see my screen on the mac, control it, etc? You can control your idevice (not only view it's screen) given you have a mac / PC paired with it (that is, you had them connected in the past using USB cable, and pressed the "Trust" button on the iPhone's screen alert). ...

Mac OSX is a certified UNIX machine so of course you can use command line tools. If you're finding yourself yearning after Linux tools then I recommend you try Homebrew which is a package manager for Mac. which works in a similar way to apt-get and contains many ports of standard tools. As @Bicou suggests, MacPorts is another option to achieve similar aims. ...

Most likely what you are seeing is the cached image of the app. Your iPhone takes picture snapshots of apps as they run, specifically so that when you go into the app switcher, you see a graphic that looks like the app. It also refreshes this image from time to time. Most likely, you're just seeing a stale picture. Also on an unrelated note, with the way ...

Then select Buddies -> Share My Screen ...

You can use your Mac as a Bluetooth keyboard for your Apple TV. I.e. type on your Mac's keyboard to have text appear on Apple TV. For this you need Type2Phone ( http://www.houdah.com/type2Phone/ ) from the Mac App Store. Full disclosure: I am the developer of Type2Phone.

There seem to be a handful of apps available that allow your iPhone to act as a webcam for your Mac over Wi-Fi, which would allow you to view and record video from them. A few of the ones I found: PocketCam Mobiola WebCamera iWebcamera For recording purposes, you may need to use the built-in recording functionality of QuickTime Player, although some of the ...

There are many ways to lock and unlock your Mac via SSH. The easiest and probably the fastest way is to use osascript (applescript). Locking Mac To do this, log in via ssh and type in osascript -e 'tell application "Finder" to sleep' You can switch Finder for System Events, but that means more characters to type. Unlocking Mac To wake your Mac is a ...

You can only have one password for one and the same account, but for SSH and SFTP you can however further restrict access to make it more secure. One thing you can and should do if your SSH server is available to the public is disable password authentication altogether: Edit /etc/sshd_config (requires root credentials) and uncomment the line: #...

The new iMac does not have an infrared receiver. You will not be able to use your Apple Remote. For controlling iTunes, I recommend Remote from the App Store. For Plex, I recommend Plex from the App Store. Whereas in the past Apple promoted the idea of using your Mac as a media hub (hence the inclusion of the Front Row app), I think Apple is now promoting ...

There are three options I am aware of Port Forwarding You can set up port forwarding for each device you want to be be able to connect to externally. This assumes you know your external IP address.

The closest I can think of in your case is to go to System Preferences > Parental Control and create a new account (or use the “Guest” account). Then, set the following restrictions (my OS is not in English, so the exact terms might be different): Under Apps: Use simplified Finder Restrict applications, only checking Safari from the list. Under Other: ...

Install Little Snitch. It's an Outbound Firewall meaning that when apps on your computer try to establish connections to other machines, you'll get a notification and be able to block the connections. If someone is trying to monitor your computer, Little Snitch would inform you of the outgoing network connections and allow you to block them.

Typical software (Apple Remote Desktop, Casper, Absolute, VNC, etc) that allows remote monitoring of Macs will be reliant on a few things that the end user controls, assuming they have administrative privileges. In System Preferences > Sharing a lot of this control is determined using these two preferences. Remote Management is centered around the Apple ...

Currently, the answer is no. iOS does not have a built in cursor function(unless you count the new keyboard cursor is iOS 9). In order to use a mouse on an iPad at all, you would probably need to jailbreak it.

What you want to do is entirely possible (in fact, it's pretty close to what I do). There are a few things to be aware of. For initial set up you will need to connect your MacMini to a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Once you've set it up you can hide it away (provided that you have a good flow of air for cooling) and connect from your iPad. Due to some ...
