remote control mac with iphone I’ve heard of people controlling their Mac’s via their iPhone but assumed it was something just for the jailbreak crowd. Well, I assumed wrong. It’s actually really easy to control your Mac from the iPhone, the steps are basically this simple:
* Turn on ‘Screen Sharing’ in your Sharing preferences (set a password!)
* Download a VNC client on the iPhone (Mocha VNC Lite is recommended, it’s free)
* Connect to your Mac’s IP address via the iPhone VNC client
* That’s it!

It’s really about that simple, if you want some more guidance though, check out TechChimp’s walkthrough on the matter, it’s easy to follow and trust me, it’s easy.
