A new Windows app is now available for iOS, revealing Microsoft’s plans for conquest to expand its reach to other platforms and devices.
According to The Verge, this app serves as a “central hub” for streaming multiple Microsoft accounts to your iDevice, including Windows 365. However, the app is currently in preview, and you’ll need to download TestFlight to try it out.
So Bing Chat is now “Co-Pilot”? It’s confusing, but here are 3 new changes.
How to access the new Windows app on your iPhone
Curious about the new Windows app? You can test it by following these instructions:
Download the TestFlight app from the Apple App Store.
Install the Windows Mobile app.
Finally, after launching the app, you can tap on “Account”.
Enter your Microsoft credentials and enjoy a copy of Windows on your iPhone.
Sign in to your Microsoft account through the Windows app.

Here’s the catch. At the time of writing, you can only access the following services in the new Windows app:
Azure Virtual Desktop
Microsoft Dev Box
Remote Desktop Services
You can also stream a copy of Windows from a remote computer, but long story short, the new Windows app doesn’t support user accounts. However, there are signs that this may change soon. Like The Verge I noticed that the Windows app has a sign-in prompt that allows you to use a personal Microsoft account, but it’s not working right now.
In addition to iPhone, the Windows app preview is also available for iPadOS, macOS, and web browsers.
