Keynote for iOS (iPad): Use Keynote Remote

Use Keynote Remote

If you have an iPhone or iPod touch, you can purchase and download the Keynote Remote app from the App Store and use it to control presentation playback on your iPad. After you’ve installed the Keynote Remote app on your iPhone or iPod touch, you must link Keynote on your iPad to the Keynote Remote app on the other device. To do this, your iPhone or iPod touch and your iPad must be on the same Wi-Fi network, or both devices must have Bluetooth® turned on.

Control presentation playback using Keynote Remote:

  1. Download, install, and open the Keynote Remote app on an iPhone or iPod touch.

  2. Open the Keynote presentation you want to show on your iPad.

  3. In Keynote, tap Tools button in the toolbar, and then tap Advanced.

  4. Tap Remote, and then slide Enable Remotes to ON.

  5. In the Keynote Remote app, tap “Link to Keynote.”

    If you've linked the Keynote Remote app with your Keynote app before, the name of the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with the open presentation appears under Keynote Link.

  6. In the Keynote Remote app, do either of the following:

    • If you want to link to a Keynote app that you've linked to before, tap the name of the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad that's listed.

    • If you want to link to a Keynote app which doesn't appear in the list, tap New Keynote Link.

    A four-digit passcode appears in the Keynote Remote app. In Keynote, the name of the device on which the Keynote Remote app is installed appears.

  7. In Keynote, tap Link next to the name of the device running the Keynote Remote app, and then type in the passcode.

  8. In the Keynote Remote app, tap Landscape to see previews of the current and next slides in the Keynote Remote app during presentation playback, or tap Portrait to see a preview of only the current slide.

    To see the presenter notes for each slide, select Portrait, and then slide Presenter Notes to ON.

  9. In the Keynote Remote app, tap Done, and then tap Play Slideshow.

  10. To control presentation playback, do any of the following in the Keynote Remote app:

    • To advance to the next slide, swipe left.

    • To return to the previous slide, swipe right.

    • To stop presentation playback, tap Options, and then tap End Show.

    • To return to the beginning of the presentation, tap Options, and then tap First Slide.
