Send commands from Windows system to iOS device

Hi Guys,

I am new to iOS application development. please help.

We have existing android application installed in the windows pc. When we send commands to the android device from our application, android device will respond to the commands we have sent and acknowledges(Ex: adb call, adb SMS, adb radio wifi on etc.,)

We want to create same like that in iOS. Is there a equivalent to ADB Shell in iOS platform?

How can we communicate with iOS devices from the desktop application written in c#? (Ex: We send call command from application, call should trigger in the iOS device(iPhone), send radio wifi on - Should trigger wifi on the iOS device)

The above iOS application we want to develop using Xamarion.iOS...Can somebody help on my queries for starting?

    AFAIK , there is no way to achieve this.

  • I have a mac OS paired to my windows PC(Visual studio 2019 and Xamarin.os templates are installed).
    I want to make wifi on/off programatically through Xamarain.os application. Example : When we send wifi on/off command from the application developed in Xamarin.os, WIFI should automatically on or off in my iOS device. Can you help?
