You may face similar situation and this is a simple guide to watch the screen, control a phone from another phone, change settings on other phone from your phone, fix problems etc. etc.
What do you Need to share mobile screen remotely?
- Just 2 Apps. – Teamviewer and Quick Support

iPhone/iPad Apps to allow/control other phones
Teamviewer has a good repo in the digital industry. It includes encryption based on RSA private-/public key exchange and AES (256 bit) session encryption. This technology is based on the same standards as https/SSL and is considered completely safe by today’s standards. The key exchange also guarantees full, client-to-client data protection.
How to do it?
After you and other person install the apps. You both get unique IDs. The one who wan to share their screen has to give their ID to the other person. He/she then enters the number and you will get a prompt to Allow/Reject. Once you allow, your screen sharing session will start.
Note: On iPhones, you have to hold down ‘record-screen’ button and select TeamViewer from the options. You can then begin sharing your mobile screen.
