One of the big advantages of the myServer 6 control system is that it uses modern browser technology to access the system's user interfaces. This doesn't require an "App" (software) to be installed specifically for viewing the user interface. Just use a modern browser and link to it! But first, the device has to be on the network so it can "see" the myServer 6 controller's webserver.
Apple iOS device networking:
Click Settings icon
Ensure Wifi is enabled
Select your visible WiFi access point in the "My Networks" list. If you haven't connected to this network before, you will be prompted to add your WiFi network password. If all is good, then you should be connected to it.
To set networking details like DHCP / Static, click on the "i" button next to the connected network to access those properties.
Available are networking "dongles" that plug into the Lightning or USB-C connector. When the device detects that, you will have an Ethernet choice for networking the device. Same process as WiFi applies to establish the proper networking details.
Read some of the Android networking bits below as the recommendations also apply to Apple iOS devices.

Configuring an Android OS equipped device for networking is easy.
Allonis's SmartRemote, Conference room tablets, use the Android OS.
When the device boots, it likely will be at the Android Desktop. Note: if you are using a device like SmartRemote that has the "myUI.apk" running, simply swipe up and then hit the "X" at the top right of the myUI application window to shut it down.
Select Settings Icon.
Select Network & Internet
Choose Wi-Fi or Ethernet (depending on which connection type you will be using). Ethernet (cable) is always more reliable.
If you select Ethernet, ensure the "Ethernet is Enabled" button is On.
By default, the DHCP is enabled on most devices. This means the device will get it's IP address from the DHCP server on the network (typically from the "router"). Note: the network must be running and the device is connected to it to get a network address. It is important to note that most of the time, the IP address should be known and never change. This can be implemented by "Reserving" an IP address on the DHCP server (the "router").
If you want to "Static" address the device, click on Static. You now can access the IP address / Gateway / Subnet / DNS fields to properly address the device. Note: most of the time, the IP address should always be known and never change. This is best done using Static addressing.
Select your active WiFi access point name from the populated list. Click on that and add your known WiFi password for that network. Note this is case sensitive.
Like described above, select DHCP or Static addressing and configure those network properties.
Your Android device should now be on the network and ready for use!
You can determine the devices current networking info by clicking on: Settings / System / About / Status You can see the devices MAC address and current IP address.
