    I asked this a while ago and there was no solution. Wondering if there is a solution now.

    Is there a way to remote control, view, and manage an iPad? For example, with VNC or a similar system?

    I want to get an iPad Pro for an elderly grandparent. In case they mess something up, accidentally move an email, accidentally rename a contact, I need to be able to remote in to help them out.

    Currently on their Windows7 machine, I run a tightVNC server which I can connect to easily and fix whatever is needed. I am hoping I can do something similar on an iPad. Surely this need isn't unique.

    Any advice?

    I was under the assumption that it did allow remote control and it's always been free for personal use.

    Oh really? If it's free I'll certainly give a shot! Thanks!
