Dell's PC companion app is learning a few new tricks.

Introduced at CES 2018, the Dell Mobile Connect app lets you wireless connect your smartphone to a Dell PC - letting you make phone calls, answer texts and mirror apps right onto your desktop. Unfortuantely, this experience was only available to Android users until recently.

The latest update for Mobile Connect (announced at CES 2020) brings with it support for both file transfers and app mirroring for iOS users running iOS 11 or above. For better or worse, the former looks to be limited to just video and image files and it'll only work with iPhones as iPads aren't supported.

The new update also introduces additional support for MMS on Android. 

Dell say they expect all compatible systems to have the update by the 27th of March.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
