Important update 10/8 : We’ve had a number of users report back that they’ve been unable to connect via an RDP gateway with error code 0x03000008 since the 8.1.0 update. We are actively working on resolving this error and pinpointing the issue to find a resolution. In the meantime, if you have additional issues or questions, we encourage you to head over to the Remote Desktop client forum and post there.
My name is Livi Erickson and I am a program manager on the Remote Desktop team working on the Remote Desktop client for iOS. Today, we’re excited to announce a new update to Remote Desktop for iOS that is now available for download on the iTunes App Store.
The 8.1.0 update brings a number of changes, including:
Improved Look and Feel
We have updated the Remote Desktop for iOS app with a new look and feel. Find your desktop connections and applications quickly with a glance at the new connection center.

New in this release is the ability to connect to multiple desktops at one time and switch between them easily using the session switching functionality.

With 8.1.0, you can now manage users more easily with the ability to save different accounts that can easily be associated with your desktop and remote resources. You can add, delete, and edit users from the application settings, and choose from existing user accounts when adding new connections. User accounts can be saved for desktop and app connections, as well as for Remote Desktop Gateways. You can manage your user accounts by going to Settings and selecting “User Names”

Starting with this release, you can use Microsoft Remote Desktop in 15 languages:
To change the language of your device:
The app will match the language that your device is set to, so if you use your device in one of the above 15 languages, the Remote Desktop client will update automatically to the language you selected. If you choose a language that is not supported by the app, the app will remain in the last supported language that your device used.
