    There are many differences when it comes to configuring the Citrix receiver for Windows and the Citrix receiver for iOS devices specifically the iPad/iPhone versions.
    This article is going to go over the more common and new features/options the Citrix receiver for iOS has available along with screenshots, a brief description, and where they are located.
    NOTE: This article applies to Citrix iOS versions 5.9 and above.
    Features we will be going over are:
    • Display Options
    • Keyboard Options
    • Advanced
    External display - allows you to use an external display/monitor with your iOS device.
    First you want to connect your external display in one of the following ways:
    • AirPlay
    • Lighting to VGA adapter
    • Lighting Digital AV Adapter (this has NOT been tested but should work)

    Now you are ready to enable the option in Citrix receiver. (This option is Disabled by default)
    Settings > Display Options > External Display

    Once the option has been enabled you should now be able to see what is on the iOS's devices screen on your external display.
    If you wish to then use your iOS device strictly as a keyboard or a touchpad for maneuvering around your external display you simply need to enable Presentation Mode under External display (This option is Disabled by default)
    Settings > Display Options > Presentation Mode
    NOTE: The Presentation mode option only becomes available when External Display is enabled.
    External display is not recommended on anything lower than an iPad-Air or iPhone 5c due to the amount of processing power required by the device.
    CitrixAuto-Fit Screen - The Auto-fit Screen setting crops the session screen to the display size of iPhone. On iPad, Auto-fit Low/Medium/High will adjust the resolutions as 768x1024/1152x1536/1536x2048 and make applications and desktops fit the screen.
    Settings > Display Options > Auto-fit Screen (on iPhone)
    Settings > Display Options > Auto-fit Low/Medium/High (on iPad)

    Extended Keyboard - is the ability to use all windows key combinations in your Citrix session that the iOS virtual keyboard does not provide for example the key combination Shift + F2 which is commonly used to break out of seamless windows and requires the use of the Windows function keys F1, F2, F3, etc…
    Each individual keyboard combination can be enabled or disabled through the extended keyboard option. (Most of these combinations are Disabled by default)
    Settings > Keyboard Options > Extended Keys

    Use Custom Keyboards - this option is available for users who would like to use a full physical keyboard rather than the virtual keyboard of the iOS device and is typically connected with the devices Bluetooth pairing option. (This option is Disabled by default)
    Settings > Keyboard Options > Use Custom Keyboards

    NOTE: This feature when enabled since it is an external device as noted by the above pop-up message is less secure than using the iOS devices virtual keypad so please keep that in mind.
    Audio - If your organization enables audio for mobile devices, listen to audio from meetings, training sessions, and webinars with applications in Receiver by enabling the Audio setting. This setting lets you listen only. Receiver for iOS does not offer bi-directional audio.
    Setting > Audio

    helpful if you needed to disable session sharing just for a specific iOS user and not all users. (This option is Enabled by default)
    Settings > Advanced > Session Sharing

    Auto-add favorites - The option creates a shortcut for any application that is launched by the user for easy access the next time they launch their Citrix receiver it will be listed as a favorite for receiver so they do not have to browse to find the application again. (This option is Enabled by Default)
    Settings > Advanced > Session Sharing > Auto-add favorites
    WorkSpace control - allows users to roam from 1 device to another and have their existing session follow them. While the iOS receiver does not support all of the functions of WorkSpace control it does support the following (These options are Disabled by default)
    Settings > Advanced > WorkSpace Control

    Which has the following 2 options:
    • Reconnect during account logon
    • Reconnect during refresh
    Reconnect during account logon - will automatically reconnect the user to their existing session from a different device upon logon.
    Reconnect during refresh - Will automatically reconnect a user to an existing session if it exists during a refresh on a different device logged in with the same user account.
    Caffeine - allows the iOS device not to go into a sleep mode which the Citrix receiver is in use, so for example if the user is idle for 'X' amount of time the iOS device will not shut the screen off. (This option is Disabled by default)
    Settings > Advanced > Caffeine
