Unity Remote 5, allows you to use an iOS device to view and test your game live, right inside the Unity Editor without having to build your project. Unity Remote 5 makes your iOS device act as remote control. It streams touch, MFi gamepad, Siri remote (on Apple TV) accelerometer, gyroscope, webcam and screen orientation events back to Unity Editor. This is useful for rapid development when you don't want to compile and deploy your project to iOS device for each change and prefer to use the Unity Editor Game window instead. Unity Remote is compatible with any Unity version newer than 5.0, but some features require Unity 5.4 or above.

Don't listen to the others


This app is simply awesome for if you want to quickly test a project. A lot of people are leaving bad review, but that's probably because they don't know they need the iOS target platform optional install module attached to their Unity3D.

PLEASE, before you leave a bad review, take the time to check if you have the optional module (under Build Settings > iOS). You NEED it to test even if you're not building to iOS.

Fails despite every effort, with no helpful messages


While I love Unity3D, this is not a well engineered tool at all. If the stars align and it works for you, consider yourself lucky. For over a year, this tool has refused to work, despite following all troubleshooting steps given by Unity's support page. iTunes and Windows have no problems at all in interacting with my iPad. Why the tool gives ZERO info/error messages is beyond me.

Unity 5.4.1 bug


This does not work on unity 5.4.1
I have an iPhone 5s and was using it on 5.4.0 and it worked properly, and then I updated to 5.4.1 and I tried to find my iPhone in the editor settings in unity but it wouldn't show up.
