With each feature update, Microsoft brings new apps to Windows 10. Your Phone app is introduced with Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) to help PC users instantly access photos and messages from your Android smartphone right from your PC by just launching the Your Phone app.
While the Your Phone app is impressive, the current version of the Your Phone doesn’t offer much for iPhone users. For iPhone users, it allows you to send webpages from your iPhone to PC to pick up where you left off. You can neither access messages nor photos from your iPhone.
