The New "Phone Link" App On Windows 11 Is Just Terrible, It Does Not Support iOS Devices & Some Other Devices. Well I Don't Have A Samsung Galaxy Device But I Would Know If I Should Link My iOS Device To My Windows 11 PC Just Like The "Phone Link" App Does. I Just Can't Find Some Alternatives To The "Phone Link" App, But I Would Have To Know the Features Of It. An iOS-Linkable Windows App Should Have Features Of It, iOS Apps Should Need To Open On A Windows 11 PC If Linked From An iPhone or iPad, The iOS Clipboard Will Be Linked To My PC So That I Can Copy Links On My iPad & Pasting It On A PC, Opening An iOS File (Like Documents, Pictures, ZIP Files, Etc.) Will Open An iOS App On My PC, Or A Windows Desktop Application (Like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Photos, Media Player, Etc.), And Features That Are Different From The "Phone Link" App. (Well, Some Did Not Rhyme Correctly But It Should Be About Right.) I Just Wanted An App That Links My iOS Device To My PC Similar To The "Phone Link" App. Is There An iOS-Linking App Or No?

I just switched to IOS from Android. The phone app never worked reliably with my Samsung phone. So I don't think you are missing much.

I am interested in whether there is or not too. But I have a macbook pro that is well integrated.

1.Dell mobile connect works superbly well with IOS (you may not need a Dell to install it)
2. Could you not start each word with a capitol letter, my eyes have just been sick ;-)

I found that uninstalling the Your Phone app & using the default My phone app allowed me to add my iPhone X as it offered connection via phone number rather that just offering an option to add an Android.
Most likely the Phone link app would be the same.

I Guess It Did Not Work On My Lenovo PC. It Says That It Did Not Meet The Minimum System Requirements, So I Don’t Have A Dell PC… Any App To Connect My iOS Device To My Compatible Lenovo PC Or No?

That is painful to read. Please consider proper capitalisation and some better grammar.
