Remote access based service and maintenance has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Those who are new to the concept let me brief you. If your device has some issues on the software end, then the repair and maintenance personnel can access your device remotely from his device. Then he will make the necessary repairs remotely. There are many applications that offer this feature. One such popular app is TeamViewer. The remote access is possible when you share the screen in real-time with a person.
Earlier during the pre-iOS 11 days, the screen sharing feature was not available for iOS users. A few tech enthusiasts could jailbreak their devices and make use of this feature.
