Dear expert,

I have installed TeamViewer on my iPhone and my laptop. It is very annoying to and very limited control on IOS.

I tried Chrome remote desktop application but it is only give one way access from iPhone to PC not vice versa.

Please help me to find a free remote access application to manage and control the phone from my PC.

Thank you in advance.

the simple answer is that there isn't any.  Apple doesn't expose the hooks needed.

There is a range of different remote administration/monitoring software's out on the market. I know there's Comodo ITSM that offers certain features another is https://www.flexispy.com/ which allows administrators to actively monitor and remotely operate there Iphone devices.

Try That.

There is a difference between remote access and remote control

Indeed hence the reason I specified the following above  referring to ITSM an Flexispy  which offers different features and services.

There are plenty more remote access and remote control software's out there for what you may be looking for.

I have found an app called VNC viewer but it gives access from iPhone to PC. I am looking for a free app giving me a remote session from PC into Phone.

I am wondering why team viewer is not straight forward like Android phone.

Apple iOS is much more strictly controlled than Android.

Apple have decided that NO apps are allowed to access certain core features of the operating system .. and that in effect prevents any remote control software from working.

Apple themselves do not even have an own-brand app to allow remote control of an iOS device.

To clear up everyone's comments Apple Inc. Has gotten sloppy since the glorious Steve jobs days. The last two updates from Apple internally deleted and erased IBM forensic analysis source codes OUT of thee updates which is stupid to begin with. In addition to the OS yes you can now edit and corrupt the OS on the device by rooting into the device & yes Apple does have there own remote administration tools to remotely access and control the iOS device (internally) if needed. in reference to live stream and viewing the screen yes , Apple Inc does have the capability to see your current screen without jailbreaking or voiding the insurance and warranty.

You would have to call Apple Support for additional details this tools is a internal Apple Inc. Tool that technicians use to troubleshoot & support there clients/customers and may not be readily available to the public.

@sam - as I stated above Apple don't have any own-brand app in the App Store i.e. available to the public to download to use.
Apple have other own-brand apps for Mail, Maps and many other functions .. plus they control all the development software for iOS and I repeat that they do not allow remote control of iOS devices from any 3rd party apps plus they DO NOT make such features available to users.
 
Of course Apple have their own 'internal' apps, and it is also likely that certain AGENCIES have tools which allow remote monitoring and even control but not available to the general pubic or businesses.
