Way 2. Mirror Windows PC to iPad over LAN via Microsoft Remote Desktop

Microsoft Remote Desktop has previously launched a Remote Desktop Client for iOS devices, commonly called "RD Client."

Note: If your Windows 10 or 11 is Home Edition, you can't enable Remote Desktop as it is only available on Windows advanced editions like Windows 10 or 11 Professional.

Step 2. On the iPad Pro/Mini, download RD Client in the App Store.
