iOS 13 and iPadOS support

Citrix Workspace app for iOS is supported on iOS 13 and iPadOS, including multitasking support on iPadOS.

Important:

  • The CR01 app is not supported on iOS 13. If you are using the CR01 app, Citrix recommends that you do not upgrade to iOS 13.

  • If you use the SHA-1 certificate chain, you might need to switch to the SHA-2 certificate chain. SHA-1 signed certificates are no longer trusted on iOS 13. For more information on TLS server certificates, see Requirements for trusted certificates in iOS 13 and macOS 10.15.

  • In iOS 13, launching sessions from the Safari web browser has changed. For more information, see the help documentation.

With support for AssistiveTouch, Citrix Workspace app for iOS now connects to the Citrix X1 Mouse differently. Citrix Workspace app no longer connects to the Citrix X1 Mouse at launch. Therefore, the Citrix X1 Mouse icon is no longer available on the toolbar next to the Settings icon. To see if access to a paired Citrix X1 Mouse is enabled for Citrix Workspace app, navigate to Settings > Citrix X1 Mouse.

Session roaming on iPad

Session roaming is also now available on iPad devices. For more information, see the help documentation for iOS devices.

Keyboard layout synchronization

Keyboard layout synchronization enables users to switch preferred keyboard layouts on the client device. This feature is disabled by default.

To enable keyboard layout synchronization, go to Settings > Keyboard Options and enable the Keyboard Layout Sync option.

Note:

Using the local keyboard layout option activates the client IME (Input Method Editor). If you are working in Japanese, Chinese, or Korean language and prefer to use the server IME, disable the local keyboard layout option by clearing the option in Preferences > Keyboard.

What’s new in 1905.5

Support for session roaming

Session roaming is now available on iPhone and iPod touch devices when using a cloud store. For more information, see the help documentation for iOS devices.

What’s new in 1905

Enhancement to workspace hub

Citrix Workspace app integrates a new procedure for adding or removing a workspace hub from the trusted list on iOS devices. For more information, see Security Connection.

Host to client redirection

Content redirection allows you to control whether users access information by using applications published on servers or applications running locally on user devices.

Host to client redirection is one type of content redirection. It is supported only on Server OS VDAs (not Desktop OS VDAs).

When host to client redirection is enabled, URLs are intercepted at the server VDA and sent to the user device. The web browser or multimedia player on the user device opens these URLs. If you enable host to client redirection and the user device fails to connect to a URL, the URL is redirected back to the server VDA. When host to client redirection is disabled, users open the URLs with web browsers or multimedia players on the server VDA. When host to client redirection is enabled, users cannot disable it.

Host to client redirection was previously known as server to client redirection.

For more information, see General content redirection.
