VMware Horizon Client for iOS makes it easy to work on your VMware Horizon virtual desktop and hosted applications from your iPhone or iPad, giving you on-the-go access from any location.

IMPORTANT NOTE: A VMware Horizon virtual desktop or hosted application is required to use the VMware Horizon Client for iOS. Contact your IT department for further assistance.


The VMware Blast Extreme protocol used with Horizon 7 is designed and optimized for mobile users. Blast Extreme leverages H.264 hardware decoding to deliver the best remote experience while reducing power consumption.

VMware Horizon 6 and later supports hosted applications in addition to virtual desktops. With hosted applications, leave the desktop behind and run applications like local iOS apps.

Unity Touch bridges the gap between your touch screen and your Windows applications. With Unity Touch, you can easily browse, search, and open Windows applications & files, choose favorite applications and files, and switch between running applications all without the Start Menu or Task Bar.

With an external monitor or AirPlay, your iPhone or iPad display turns into a trackpad / keyboard while the external screen shows your VMware Horizon desktop.

The adaptive capabilities of the Blast Extreme and PCoIP display protocol make your virtual desktop fast and responsive regardless of whether you are connecting over your corporate WiFi network or over a cellular connection at a local café.

Whether you’re at your desk or away from the office, you’re always secure with VMware Horizon. Leverage smart card authentication with the Biometric Associates baiMobile 301MP smart card reader. Use the integrated RSA soft token for simpler access.

Individual users of the VMware Horizon Client for iOS should contact their internal IT help desk or visit Only Support Administrators listed on a Basic or Production Support contract for VMware Horizon may log a service ticket with VMware Technical Support

No iPad Pro Smart Keyboard Support

I use this to connect to our corporate infrastructure when working remotely through an iPad Pro.

While the browser version of VDI works fine with the Apple Smart Keyboard, the actual iPad app does not respond to Smart Keyboard input. This is a major limitation in the utility via this method.

Get back end infrastructure in place and working first before giving a poor rating!

Was a long time waiting for this to be released, but now that it is it's nothing short of brilliant. We have a full VMware environment in place with View 4.6. I order for PCoIP to work, the View connection broker servers have to be Windows 2008 R2 (64-bit)
Once the above hard work is done, it really is a simple case of installing the app on your iPad and logging in to an entitled desktop. Connection is easy and native iPad gestures work well. There are certain instances where you need to use the track pad (built in to app) but this isn't a problem.

Will be looking forward to a higher resolution iPad screen to give more space on the desktop!

All in all, a great app for the VMware user

Faster than previous version

So far so good. Seems faster than previous version. My only problem at the moment now though is the @ and " keys have swapped. My Virtual Desktop is Windows 7 with UK keyboard. This problem also occurs on the Mac OS X client version.
This was the same in the previous version and is still a problem. Does anybody know how I fix this?
The Windows version works as expected so it appears to be an Apple issue.
