With this update, Dell Mobile Connect will get support for third-party iOS app notifications. It means whenever users will receive an app notification on their iOS device, they will be to see it directly on their Dell laptop. These will include the likes of WhatsApp messages, calendar invites, and new emails.
The app was originally debuted by Dell earlier this year. It was released with the ability to send/receive calls and text messages. It announced that over 10 million calls and messages have been sent/received using the app since its launch. This suggests that Dell PC users are finding the app to be helpful.
