    MFT trouble dialing using iOS 13

    I did a search but didn't find anyone else posting about this.... Last night I updated my iPhone firmware with iOS 13. Today while driving I attempted to use MTF to call my wife. I used the same phrase I've used for years. After hitting the Sync button I said, "Call *wifes name* on cell."...

    Adding Android/iOS Mirroring to MFT
