Screen sharing coming with iOS 11

iOS 11 doesn’t just offer a built-in screen recorder; it offers an API that allows apps to do real screen sharing, basically for the first time on iOS. TeamViewer announced support for it today:

With the release of iOS 11, TeamViewer is the first provider to develop and use the newest functionality available. Scroll down to find out more about who iOS screen sharing benefits most, what tasks can be completed more effectively, and how to get started today.

TeamViewer users will be able to see a user’s shared iOS screen and provide support directly. I would imagine that we’ll be seeing many more services using these features to broadcast iOS screen video once iOS 11 ships.

Update: Reader Matthew points out that WebEx is also planning on supporting these features for videoconferencing purposes.
