  2. Anyone have any experience with the new iPad Pro (12.9 and 10.5) and Citrix Receiver? I'm looking to purchase an iPad to carry around and use to remote in when I get a problem call. Both are similar in weight, so that isn't an issue. I'm just wondering if I can get by with the 10.5 for remote.

iPad Pro, Citrix Receiver, X1 Mouse create laptop alternative


By Chris Fleck

For the past two months, I have left my laptop in the office and used only my iPad Pro for mobile work. On my desk, I still want a large display and multiple monitors. But when I’m roaming to office conference rooms, working from home or traveling, I’ve switched over to the iPad Pro – exclusively – to get the full experience.


Belkin B2B064 Sleeve: Offers good iPad protection plus a zipper pocket for accessories

Apple Smart Keyboard: The smallest, lightest integrated option

Citrix X1 Mouse: Essential for navigating Windows apps hosted on XenApp

Apple Pencil: Great for drawing and notes

Lightning to HDMI Connector: Good for presentations


Citrix Receiver: Provides access to my XenDesktop Virtual Desktop and Windows work apps, SAP, etc.

WorxMail: Secure work email

WorxWeb: Secure web browser

WorxNotes: Work notes

Citrix ShareFile: Document storage, allows online or offline access with sync

GoToMeeting: Online meetings

Messages: For work and personal messages

Slack: For team engagement

With this setup, you can definitely leave your laptop at home (or work) and do everything you need. There are many pros and a few cons.


Lightweight: the iPad Pro is only 1.6 pounds, plus 11 ounces for the Smart Keyboard. I tried other keyboards, but I liked the ease of flipping to tablet mode with the Smart Keyboard.

Battery: The 10-hour battery life makes all-day work easy.

Cellular: The option for built-in cellular data makes the iPad Pro more mobile than most laptops.

Mouse: Using the Citrix X1 Mouse makes all the difference when connected to a virtual desktop or Windows app. Right-click, drag and drop, scroll – everything works as expected.

Stylus: The Apple Pencil works great for native apps like drawing or editing photos. It feels better than any other stylus I have tried. It also works well inside a XenApp session and can be used instead of the mouse.

Comfort: The ability to easily rotate and sit back in couch-surf mode with touch is something I do almost every evening and is preferable to a laptop.

Split screen: The coming version of Receiver enables the Split View feature. I often have my virtual XenDesktop in three-quarters of my display and local Slack or Messages in the one-quarter sidebar.


Offline: There are still times when working offline is required. I can use the native apps but full-feature PowerPoint is not an option.

Keyboard lighting: The Apple Smart Keyboard keys are not backlit, which is a problem in dim light. Logitech and others have backlit keys, but are heavier

Screen sharing: Sharing the local screen in a GoToMeeting (or other web meetings) does not work due to iOS limitations. The remote Virtual Desktop can be shared but not a local app.

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

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.
Auto-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.
