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, 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.”

As mentioned above, users are able to remotely access Windows 11 from iPhone 13 pro max free using RD Client.
