Suggested January 2024 How To Access Your Mac Remotely From Your Iphone Or Ipad With Screens Vnc

There is a ton of VNC software options out there, but Screens by Edovia has by far been my favorite for a number of years because it looks and feels like software Apple could have created themselves.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how you can use the Screens app from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, in combination with Edovia’s free Screens Connect software for Mac, to access your Mac remotely.

Why Screens VNC?

Screens VNC for iOS is on the pricier side of things, at $19.99 from the App Store, so lots of people are going to be skeptical at its worthiness and compare it to free software like TeamViewer and other less-expensive VNC apps.

My opinion on many of those alternatives is that they may work alright, but… meh. The interfaces don’t really spark my interest, or the features aren’t really as appealing.

I’ve tried lots of VNC software apps, and none have felt as native as Screens. It just seems to work well and it looks and feels like an app that was put together by people who understand the design and function of Apple’s iOS and OS X platforms very well.

Accessing your Mac remotely with Screens VNC

There are two things you have to do to make this work: 1) you need to set up your Mac, and 2) you need to set up your iOS device.

Setting up your Mac

Using Screens VNC is pretty easy; Edovia has pretty much streamlined the process by making everything cloud-based. You can make a free Screens Connect account and everything else becomes easy peasy. We’ll show you the steps to set up your VNC connection to your Mac with Screens below:

2) Next, download and install the free Screens Connect software from Edovia’s website on your Mac or PC after you’ve created your Screens Connect account.

5) Once you’re in, you’re good to go. You should see green dots for everything because Screens Connect will configure itself automatically for the best performance on your network:

Setting up your iOS device

To prepare your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, you’ll follow these steps:

1) Download and install Screens VNC on your iOS device.

2) Launch the app and tap on the Settings button at the top left of the app’s interface:

3) Next, tap on the Screens Connect Sign In cell.

4) Enter your credentials for your Screens Connect account and tap Next.

5) Once your sign in is complete, tap on the Settings button and then tap on the Done button.

6) Now you’ll find yourself back in the Screens VNC app interface. If you’re on the same Wi-Fi network as your computer, you can tap on the + button to begin adding your computer.

7) In the next menu that appears, tap on the New Screen button.

8) You should now be given a list of computers you can connect to. Your Mac or PC that you installed Screens Connect on should show up in this list if it’s on the same Wi-Fi network as your iOS device. Tap on it.

9) The next screen lets you configure your connection to your computer. You can leave almost everything how it is because Screens Connect set everything up for you already. Just enter your computer’s username and password so Screens VNC knows how to log into your computer, then tap Done.

10) Your computer will now appear in your computer splash screen from the Screens VNC app interface. You can tap on it to begin connecting to it.

11) Because you gave Screens VNC your username and password, you won’t need to log in; it does it automatically for you. Screens VNC will begin downloading your Mac or PC’s display:

12) And once it’s ready, you’ll see your Mac’s screen on your iOS device’s display:

That’s all there is to it! You have connected to your Mac with the Screens VNC app by Edovia, and now you can control your Mac remotely without having to be sitting next to it.

To disconnect, you can tap on the Share button at the bottom right of the app, and then tap on the Disconnect button:

More things to know about Screens VNC

Screens VNC is a great VNC client for iOS, and at $19.99, you should expect no less than the best.

The app supports multi-touch and various other gestures for inputting information into your Mac. It even includes its own keyboard, as well as dedicated OS X-like shortcut buttons across the bottom of the app. With these tools, you can operate your Mac just like if you were sitting right next to it.

It’s possible to set up a DNS server with your Mac and access your Mac with Screens VNC even when you’re not connected to the same Wi-Fi network, so with that in mind, it is just as powerful as apps like TeamViewer, but requires a little more time to configure. Depending on your knowledge of networking, setting up a DNS server may or may not be outside of your comfort zone.

Wrapping up

Screens VNC is my favorite remote desktop software for my iOS devices, and it has a great front end design on not only the iOS platform, but also on the Mac. It’s a piece of software that does cost a bit of dime at $19.99 from the App Store, but I’ve been using it for years and I must say I don’t regret buying it one bit.

How To Block Unwanted Text Messages On Your Iphone, Ipad And Mac

We’ve all been there: sitting and working on our devices when we randomly get a message from an unknown sender. The message usually varies from a sales pitch to a dating request. You can choose to ignore it, but if you start receiving messages repeatedly from the same number, it can be very annoying. Fortunately, blocking messages from a specific sender is very easy on iOS but, it is a bit of a lengthier process on macOS.

Both methods are detailed below.

How to Block Messages on iOS

Blocking messages on iOS is very easy. You just need to select the contact information and choose the option to “Block the caller.”

1. In the Messages app, open the message/conversation from the sender that you want to block.

2. Tap on the contact at the top of the conversion.

3. Tap on the small Info button next to it.

That’s it. Do note that this contact will still be able to send you a voicemail, but you won’t get a notification about it. Also, they won’t know that you’ve blocked them, but any messages sent by you or them won’t get delivered.

This method also works for blocking messages by corporate brands (sent by a 5 digit number), so you can easily block all unwanted sale messages.

How to Block Messages on macOS

If you’ve tried blocking a number in the Messages app on macOS, you may have noticed that there is no direct option to do so. Blocking messages from a sender on macOS is a bit more tedious, since you can’t directly block a sender. Instead, the sender’s phone number / iMessage email address has to be added as a contact first before it can be blocked. The method is a bit longer but works just as well. We hope Apple considers a more simpler solution like the one for iOS.

1. Open up the Messages app on macOS, and select the conversation with the sender you want to block.

3. Save the number as a contact. We’d recommend using some random name, such as “Blocked.”

That’s it. It’s also worth noting that if your iPhone/Mac share the same Apple ID, blocking an address / phone number on any one device will result in it automatically being blocked on each device using the same Apple ID with Messages. That’s why we recommend using the iOS method described above, as it’s much easier and simpler.

How To Clear The Dns Cache On Your Iphone, Ipad & Mac

Is a stale DNS cache making your web browsing experience excruciatingly slow? If so, you may have thought about speeding things up by switching to an alternate domain name server on your device. In that case, you’ll need to clear the DNS cache on your device.

There are several ways to flush DNS caches in iOS and macOS, and this step-by-step tutorial covers them all! Here’s how to delete the DNS cache on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and popular web browsers like Safari, Chrome, Opera, and Firefox.

The problem

If you cannot connect to some websites, a web page won’t load at all, or your network slows down randomly for no apparent reason, chances are your device’s DNS cache has become corrupted due to technical glitches, administrative accidents, or other reasons.

Aside from other reasons, the DNS cache may become polluted when unauthorized domain names or IP addresses are inserted via a network attack or malware/virus.

But worry not, resetting the DNS cache should help resolve those problems.

What is a DNS cache?

DNS, or “Domain Name System,” has been the staple of the Internet’s functionality since 1985.

In short, DNS is a decentralized naming system for devices connected to the Internet or a private network (VPN). The system assigns domain names to each of the devices while translating human-readable domain names like chúng tôi to the numerical IP addresses that identify services and devices with the underlying network protocols.

A DNS cache, also known as a DNS resolver cache, is a temporary database, a phone book of sorts, which helps speed up DNS lookups by storing records of all the recent network requests. Rather than having to memorize numerical IP addresses for your favorite websites, your device can tap into a cached table of recent DNS lookups to know how to load a web resource.

In other words, a DNS cache is just a memory of recent DNS lookups that your computer can quickly refer to when it’s trying to figure out how to load a website. A DNS cache is maintained by the operating system, but some browsers may keep their own DNS cache.

All caches can become corrupt over time, and that’s especially true with DNS caches. A corrupt DNS cache may lead to intermittent problems with loading websites. Therefore, clearing the DNS cache so it doesn’t hold invalid items is usually the best way to solve any such woes.

It is very important to stress that clearing the DNS cache won’t remove your browsing history, website data, saved passwords, or any other temporary Internet files that get saved to your device to speed up web page load times.

When and why should you clear DNS caches?

Here are a few common scenarios in which clearing the DNS cache may help.

Prevent DNS hijacking: This practice subverts the resolution of DNS queries, which can be achieved via malware or by modifying the behavior of a trusted DNS server to the point it no longer complies with Internet standards. Flushing your DNS cache minimizes the risk of DNS hijacking, which is a significant problem in China.

Resolve page-loading problems: Starting fresh is the best way of addressing situations when some websites won’t load, or web pages load slowly.

Enforce network settings change: If you’ve made changes to your device’s network settings, like adding a custom DNS as part of your VPN service, clearing out the DNS cache will make these changes take effect immediately without any further action.

Even if you’re not having any problems loading web pages whatsoever, clearing out a stale DNS cache won’t just make your web browsing experience hassle-free but will also clean up the valuable storage space in your device.

Your router has a DNS cache, too, meaning that any DNS troubleshooting steps should also include flushing the DNS cache on both the computer and the router.

Follow along with us as we explain how to clear the DNS cache on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and leading computer web browsers.

How to clear DNS cache on iPhone and iPad

On iOS, you have three different ways of clearing the DNS cache. Firstly, you can toggle Airplane Mode on and then back off, which has the side effect of flushing the DNS cache. Secondly, you can simply reboot your device to achieve the same effect as the Airplane Mode method. And thirdly, dumping your network settings will also do the trick.

Use Airplane Mode

1) Open Control Center by swiping down from the upper-right corner of the screen on iPhone X or later or iPad with iOS 12 or later. On older devices or iOS versions, swipe up from the bottom edge to pull up the Control Center overlay.

2) Tap the Airplane Mode icon in the top-left corner of the Network Settings card.

When Airplane Mode is toggled on, the icon turns orange to denote that all cellular services are currently shut down, which will also prompt iOS to flush the system’s DNS cache.

3) After about 15 seconds, tap the Airplane Mode icon again to re-enable wireless services.

Reboot your iPhone or iPad

Restarting your device makes it fast and simple to flush the DNS cache.

1) Do the following:

On iPhone X and 2023 iPad Pro and newer: Press and hold the Side button and either volume button until the slider appears.

On older devices, like iPhone 8 and earlier: Hold down the Power button for a few seconds.

The Power button is also known as the Top button on iPod touch and iPad.

iOS restart buttons have been rechristened and repositioned over the years

2) Swipe the slider labeled Slide to Power Off.

3) After the device shuts down and turns off, wait a few seconds, then press and hold the Side/Top/Power button again until you see the Apple logo. As a security precaution, when the device reboots, you’ll need to enter your passcode to re-enable Touch ID or Face ID.

Because rebooting takes more time than toggling the Airplane Mode on and then back off, this isn’t the best approach if you need to flush your DNS cache multiple times per day.

Note: Concerned about DNS hijacking? If so, this isn’t the safest method of flushing the DNS cache because the hijacking may occur immediately after the device reboots, before you even have the chance to connect to a VPN.

Network settings dump

Clearing the network settings on your device will also flush the system’s DNS cache.

1) Open Settings on your device.

2) Choose General from the list.

3) Tap Transfer or Reset iPhone.

4) Tap Reset and choose Reset Network Settings.

5) Type in your passcode, if asked, then confirm that you wish to clear out all network settings and return them to factory defaults.

This may not be the best method because resetting your network settings won’t just restart the device (which clears the caches anyway) but also clear passwords for all the Wi-Fi networks you’ve joined. Worse, cellular data settings from your wireless provider will be cleared out, too, and all your other network settings will be lost, so you’ll need to set them up again.

How to clear DNS caches on your Mac

On macOS, the flushing of DNS caches is performed through Terminal commands that have changed over the years but don’t you worry a thing as iDownloadBlog has you covered.

1) First, open Terminal from your /Application/Utilities folder or via Spotlight.

2) Type the command corresponding to your Mac operating system version, then press Enter.

macOS Big Sur, macOS Monterey (11.0, 12.0)

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

macOS Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, and Catalina (10.12, 10.13, 10.14, and 10.15)

sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder; sleep 2

OS X Yosemite 10.10.4+ and El Capitan (10.11)

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

OS X Yosemite (10.10.0-10.10.3)

sudo discoveryutil mdnsflushcache; sudo discoveryutil udnsflushcaches

OS X Mavericks (10.9)

dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

OS X Lion and Mountain Lion (10.7 and 10.8)

sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard (10.5 and 10.6)

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

If, for some reason, the Terminal command for macOS Sierra and newer won’t work properly, feel free to use the following syntax instead:

sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder; sudo killall mDNSResponderHelper; sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

You will need administrative privileges to execute these commands.

Bonus: Mac-cleaning software

If all of the above sounds too complicated, especially the Terminal method, consider a third-party solution such as MacPaw’s CleanMyMac, which is a much simpler alternative to clearing your DNS caches that works on all versions of the Mac operating system.

Start by downloading CleanMyMac from the MacPaw website for free.

How to clear DNS caches in popular browsers

In addition to the system’s own DNS cache, most browsers (barring Internet Explorer) also keep a cached copy of the DNS records. This internal browser DNS cache may get corrupt over time and slow down lookups. Your browser automatically clears its cache when it’s restarted, but you can also do it manually without having to reopen the app.


1) Launch Safari on your Mac.

2) Enable Safari’s hidden Develop menu by choosing Preferences from the Safari menu.

4) Tick the box next to “Show Develop menu in menu bar.”

Now the hidden Develop menu will appear in Safari’s menu bar.

After clearing your browsing cache, be sure to quit and re-launch Safari for the best results.


1) Launch Chrome on your Mac

2) Type chrome://net-internals/#dns in the address bar, then press Enter.

4) Open a new tab, then type in the address chrome://net-internals/#sockets and press Enter.

Now restart Chrome for the changes to take effect.


1) Launch Opera on your Mac

2) Type opera://net-internals/#dns in the address bar, then press Enter.

4) Open a new tab, then type in the address opera://net-internals/#sockets and press Enter.

Now restart Opera for the best results.


1) Launch Firefox on your Mac.

2) In the address bar, type about:config and press Enter.

4) Use the search field at the top to search for “network.dnsCacheExpiration”.

6) After doing this, now set both variables back to 60.

Restart Firefox to finish the process.

How To Fix A Vpn Not Working On Your Iphone Or Ipad

Are you unable to use a VPN on your iOS device? This may be because the VPN app stays stuck on the “connecting” screen. Or, sometimes, even after it seems that you have connected successfully to a VPN, websites may not load at all!

In this guide, we have listed all the top solutions to fix the most common VPN issues on your iPhone or iPad.

Note: Although we have used screenshots from Proton VPN in this post, most solutions mentioned here are general VPN tips. They will work even if you use NordVPN, Express VPN, Surfshark, Private Internet Access, CyberGhost, IPVanish, PrivateVPN, chúng tôi TunnelBear, AtlasVPN, ZoogVPN, Hoxx, Avira Phantom VPN, Speedify, Hotspot Shield, or any other VPN app.

1. Make sure Wi-Fi or cellular data is working

The installed VPN app on your iPhone can only connect to its servers and work successfully if your device’s Wi-Fi or cellular data are working correctly.

So, the first step is to ensure your iPhone has an active internet connection. To check, open Safari and visit a website. If it works, please move on to the next solution. And in case it doesn’t, see these tips to establish a working Wi-Fi or cellular data connection on your iPhone. Once Wi-Fi or cellular data works on your iPhone, you can route your web traffic via a VPN.

2. Disconnect and reconnect from the VPN app

Open the VPN app on your iPhone and tap the Disconnect button to stop using it. After waiting for a few seconds, tap the same button to reconnect.

Note: The word VPN is shown in the iPhone Control Center when you’re connected to one. But sometimes, you will see this word in the iOS Control Center, even when your VPN app is stuck on the “Loading connection info…” or “Connecting…” screen and not actually working.

3. Force quit the VPN app and reopen it

Swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen or double-press the Home button to enter App Switcher. From here, drag the VPN app tile all the way up to force close it. Once that’s done, wait 10 seconds before reopening the VPN app.

4. Enable and disable Airplane mode

Open the iOS Control Center or the Settings app and enable Airplane Mode. Doing so will turn off all wireless protocols like Wi-Fi and cellular data and refresh the network connections. Once this is done, open the VPN app and retry connecting. It should work now.

5. Restart your iPhone

This kind of VPN problems are successfully addressed by simply powering off and on your iPhone.

6. Restart your Wi-Fi router

In addition to restarting your iPhone, consider doing the same for your Wi-Fi router. Use the main wall power switch to turn it off. After that, wait for about 30 seconds before switching it on.

7. Make sure you have sufficient VPN allowance

If you’re on a paid VPN plan, you almost certainly have an unlimited quota. However, some VPN apps like TunnelBear offer a limited amount of data on the free plan. This can range from 500 MB to a few GBs. Once you exhaust that limit, your VPN won’t work.

So, if you’re using a free VPN, open the app, go to the accounts page and look for any such alert. If you do have one, consider upgrading to their paid plan or get another free VPN app.

8. Delete the VPN profile and add it again

This is an important solution that has worked for me multiple times. Here’s how to proceed:

Tap ⓘ next to the added VPN profile.

Tap Delete VPN and confirm.

Now, open the VPN app and tap its connect button. It will show an alert to add the VPN profile. Tap Allow, followed by your iPhone passcode or Touch ID authentication.

Once this is done, the VPN app will connect successfully. If you don’t see the Allow popup in step 4, delete and reinstall the VPN app.

9. Check the VPN server congestion

Some services like Proton VPN show you the list of servers they have in a country, and next to every server, it shows the congestion percentage. If a server is 90+% busy, try using a different, less congested one as that will connect quickly and offer better speed.

10. Pick a different country or VPN server

At times, VPN servers of a particular country may not let you connect to it due to overload or temporary downtime. In these cases, try picking a different country from the list.

11. Change the VPN protocol

A VPN protocol is responsible for how your data is routed from your iPhone to the VPN servers. Usually, a VPN app supports several protocols and, by default, tends to use the best one. Some may even smartly switch between protocols to ensure a stable and secure connection.

If you cannot connect to VPN, open the VPN app on your iPhone and go to its settings. From here, tap the protocol button and choose another option. After this, try connecting to the VPN and see whether it works or not. If it doesn’t, go back to using the default protocol and read the remaining solutions below, or try another protocol.

12. Turn off the second VPN on your iPhone or Wi-Fi router

A few people might simultaneously use more than one VPN service for extra protection. It’s also possible that you are running a VPN on your iPhone and another on the Wi-Fi router. If that’s the case, switch off the other VPN and use only one at a time.

Tap and hold the App Store icon on your iPhone Home Screen or App Library and pick Updates from the Quick Actions menu. Next, pull down the Updates screen to refresh it. If an update is available for your VPN app, install it.

14. Uninstall and reinstall the VPN app

In rare cases, the only way to fix VPN issues is by deleting the VPN app and installing it again. Make sure you do that before moving to the remaining tips.

15. Turn off Private Wi-Fi Address

Next, try to connect to a VPN and see if it works or not. If it doesn’t, restart your iPhone and retry. In case the problem continues, re-enable Private Wi-Fi Address and move to the next solution.

16. Switch off Connect On Demand or Always-on VPN

17. Change DNS inside the VPN app

Some VPN apps may give you an option to change the DNS. For example, you can replace the existing DNS address with that of Cloudflare (, Google ( and, etc.

18. Some websites and services don’t work via VPNs

Before moving forward, it’s essential to know that some websites, apps, and services may outright refuse to work with all or certain VPNs. Therefore, we recommend turning off the VPN when updating your iPhone or when you can’t get an iOS app to work.

19. Upgrade to a paid and reputable VPN

If you’re on a free service, evaluate your VPN needs and if it’s something you use frequently, consider buying a paid subscription. Most VPNs cost $3 to $6 per month if you go for their long-term plans. You can try NordVPN, one of the best VPNs for your Apple and non-Apple devices. They have a 30-day money-back guarantee in case you don’t like their service.

20. Has that particular VPN pulled out of your country?

Due to multiple reasons like lack of profits, regulations, or governmental pressure, a VPN app may stop doing business in a country and pull out completely. If that’s the case, your only option is to use a different VPN.

21. Try another VPN app

Even after all the above recommendations, if your VPN app isn’t working, it’s time to explore some other options. One search on the App Store or Google for VPN will show many results. Go through reviews and people’s experiences on Reddit, Quora, or web forums before picking a VPN service.

Do the following in case you have already invested in a VPN app that no longer works on your iPhone:

See if the same VPN works on your computer or other devices. Almost all VPN services allow you to use the same account on multiple devices.

Read the remaining solutions to reset your iPhone if the same VPN (via your account) works on other devices but not your iPhone.

22. Reset network settings

If the problem continues, consider resetting all iPhone settings.

Finally, if nothing works for you with the VPN service you’re trying to use, contact their customer support and explain your situation. In case you have already paid for their services, and it doesn’t work, request a refund and switch to a different VPN provider. You should find a way to reach your VPN provider at the bottom of the app’s settings app or their official website.

9to5Mac is brought to you by JustAnswer: Connect 1-on-1 with an Apple support Expert to get step-by-step assistance via phone or online chat, 24/7. Try it now. 

In the days of biometric authentication with Face ID and Touch ID, it can be easy to forget the passcode you set for your iPhone or iPad. Thankfully, it is possible to gain access to an iPhone or iPad if you forget your passcode, though you’ll likely need your Apple ID password.

How to access your iPhone or iPad if you forgot your passcode

Method 1: Restore via iCloud

If you have Find My iPhone enabled on the iPhone or iPad in question, you can erase the device via a web browse. Note that this will remove all data from your device, though you can restore from an iCloud backup after the fact.

Here’s how to restore your iPhone or iPad via Find My iPhone.

Log in with your Apple ID

Your iPhone or iPad will now be completely factory reset.

Method 2: Restore via iTunes

If you don’t have Find My iPhone enabled, or could not successfully erase via iCloud, you can also do so via iTunes.

The first step is to place your iPhone or iPad into recovery mode.

iPhone X or later, and iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus: Press and hold the Side button and one of the volume buttons until the power off slider appears. Drag the slider to turn off. Connect to your computer while holding the Side button. Keep holding the Side button until you see the recovery-mode screen.

iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPod touch (7th generation): Power off your device. Connect to your computer while holding the Volume down button. Keep holding the Volume down button until you see the recovery-mode screen.

iPhone 6s or earlier, iPod touch (6th generation or earlier), or iPad with Home button: Power off your device. Connect your device to your computer while holding the Home button. Keep holding the Home button until you see the recovery-mode screen.

Once you’ve done that, iTunes (or Finder if you’re running macOS Catalina) should tell you that there “is a problem with the iPhone that requires it to be updated or restored.”

Once you boot back up, you can go through the iOS setup process and either setup the device as new or restore from an iCloud backup. In either scenario, you can set a new passcode for your iPhone or iPad.

Activation Lock

When your device turns back on after being restored, you’ll likely be presented with an Activation Lock screen – either on the PC or Mac you used to perform the restore, or on the iOS device itself. Here is where you’ll be required to enter your Apple ID and password to gain access to your device.

You can read more about Activation Lock in Apple’s support document here.
