Apple added native mouse support with iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. It’s part of the new AssistiveTouch feature that can be enabled in the Accessibility settings. This works well for native iOS apps where simple clicks and drags are sufficient and works with most Bluetooth or wired mice including the Citrix X1 Mouse. When using an X1 Mouse however, Citrix Workspace communicates directly with the mouse using the public iOS Bluetooth APIs. This allows it to provide desktop style Windows mouse events - such as right click, wheel scroll and hover events – in a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops session while also allowing for native mouse support outside a session or in other iOS apps. The X1 Mouse can also be used on a non-iOS device, in which case the mouse behaves just like a standard Bluetooth 4.0 mouse.

Yes, with iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 with the AssistiveTouch feature enabled, but only for simple clicks and drags. The desktop style Windows mouse events that the Citrix X1 Mouse can provide are only available within Citrix Workspace app in a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops session. The X1 Mouse also functions as a standard Bluetooth-enabled mouse on Android, Mac and Windows devices. 

Customers are urged to troubleshoot the mouse using the diagnostic instructions on Citrix.com (see below).  The Citrix Workspace app support team is trained to troubleshoot X1 Mouse integration issues, with Workspace app or Citrix Receiver, but physical issues with the X1 Mouse should be handled via the request a return form on Citrix.com.  Customers are also encouraged to purchase Software Maintenance for their Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops environments to get access to the latest troubleshooting tools, techniques and resources.

XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x and XenApp 6.5 have been tested and validated, but the mouse should work for all version of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops utilizing the Receiver for iOS 5.9.5 or higher.

  1. Install the Citrix Workspace app. This can be found by searching for “Citrix Workspace” on the App Store. If you are still using Citrix Receiver, ensure that you upgrade to the latest Citrix Workspace app as since August 2018, updates and feature enhancements are only available for Workspace app.
  2. Enable Bluetooth on iPhone or iPad. Power ON the X1 Mouse using the switch on the bottom of the mouse.
  3. Start Workspace and enable X1 Mouse from the Citrix X1 Mouse settings screen, which is found under the Application Settings.

  7. In case of any issues (i.e. if you’re not seeing the mouse pointer)
    1. Turn the Citrix X1 Mouse option in Workspace app OFF and back ON.
    2. Power the mouse OFF and back ON using the switch on the bottom of the mouse.
