Intel’s Unison app syncs your iPhone with any Windows 11 PC. Here’s how to get it.

What you need to know

  • Intel announced its Unison app to connect Android and iPhones to PCs in Fall 2022.
  • The app would be released in limited availability for select Intel Evo PCs.
  • Intel Unison was quietly released at the end of November and is now available.
  • Despite Intel claiming that Unison is available “on eligible Intel Evo designs”, I could install it on any PC, including Qualcomm ARM based PCs.

In early September, Intel announced its new “Unison” app, based on the technology it acquired from Israeli startup Screenovate (read my in-depth dive and interviews about it). The software is similar to Microsoft’s Phone Link (also known as Your Phone) in that it allows you to connect your smartphone to your Windows PC to receive notifications, text messages, phone calls, and more.

However, the big difference with Intel Unison is that it also works on Apple’s iOS – something Phone Link does not do. Indeed, all the same functions work as on Android, including photos, transferring files, sending and receiving messages, and notifications.
