There are many differences when it comes to configuring the Citrix receiver for Windows and the Citrix receiver for iOS devices specifically the iPad/iPhone versions.
This article is going to go over the more common and new features/options the Citrix receiver for iOS has available along with screenshots, a brief description, and where they are located.
NOTE: This article applies to Citrix iOS versions 5.9 and above.
Features we will be going over are:
- Display Options

First you want to connect your external display in one of the following ways:
- Lighting to VGA adapter
- Lighting Digital AV Adapter (this has NOT been tested but should work)
Now you are ready to enable the option in Citrix receiver. (This option is Disabled by default)
Settings > Display Options > External Display
Once the option has been enabled you should now be able to see what is on the iOS's devices screen on your external display.
If you wish to then use your iOS device strictly as a keyboard or a touchpad for maneuvering around your external display you simply need to enable Presentation Mode under External display (This option is Disabled by default)
Settings > Display Options > Presentation Mode
NOTE: The Presentation mode option only becomes available when External Display is enabled.
External display is not recommended on anything lower than an iPad-Air or iPhone 5c due to the amount of processing power required by the device.
Auto-Fit Screen - The Auto-fit Screen setting crops the session screen to the display size of iPhone. On iPad, Auto-fit Low/Medium/High will adjust the resolutions as 768x1024/1152x1536/1536x2048 and make applications and desktops fit the screen.
Settings > Display Options > Auto-fit Screen (on iPhone)

Extended Keyboard - is the ability to use all windows key combinations in your Citrix session that the iOS virtual keyboard does not provide for example the key combination Shift + F2 which is commonly used to break out of seamless windows and requires the use of the Windows function keys F1, F2, F3, etc…
Each individual keyboard combination can be enabled or disabled through the extended keyboard option. (Most of these combinations are Disabled by default)
