How can I remotely access my computer from my iPhone?

“Help! How can I remotely access Windows 11 from iPhone 13 pro? Note in advance, that RD Client won’t work for me as I want to have my iPhone outside, for example, at Starbucks, and work on my PC at home or at the office. Although I can use Microsoft Remote Desktop without being in the same WiFi network if I set up port forwarding correctly, it sounds really complicated for me. I’m hoping to find an easier way.
