I'm in the same boat. 

The ios app Serverauditor is the only one I've found (of many tested) that 
sends Alt as Meta. 

You'll want to use the Homebrew color scheme otherwise the cursor is invisible. 
(Would be too easy if it didn't require any troubleshooting, right?)

Unfortunately C-c comes across as "pause" and I don't know how to resolve this 
and it's a nuisance so I've gone gui. If anyone knows the solution, please do 

My current preferred solution is using a Kangaroo PC and Splashtop to control 
it with the iPad.

Kangaroo is a display-less pocket PC running Win10. You can purchase them from 
newegg or the MS store. 

 Splashtop is the lowest latency wireless solution I've found and (importantly) 
the only one that supports the smart keyboard. Previously I would use OSLinx or 
DuetDisplay for wired latency but with a separate Bluetooth keyboard for the PC.

The Kangaroo PC is very weak but it works well enough for emacs.
