Getting Started: Mac Support

Download and install for Mac

Download the latest macOS version from here – requires macOS Big Sur or later. If you wish to use Duet on an older macOS, please reach out to us at for further assistance.

To install the app, please double-click on the .app file, which will install Duet in your Applications folder. Once installed, you will see the app's icon in the menu at the top right of your Mac (a lower case d with a circle around it). If you need to change any settings, click on the menu bar icon to open Duet's UI on macOS.

How to Connect: If you are connecting an iOS or Android device to your Mac, make sure you have downloaded and installed Duet on that device as well. Click here for iOS and here for Android.

Wired connection (iOS, Android): Start Duet on iOS and on your Mac. Now connect your iPad or iPhone to your computer using either USB to 30 pin, lightning cable, USB-C and/or USB-C to USB-C (the same one you use for charging) and voilà! For Android connections please use a USB or USB-C cable.

Wireless connection (iOS, Android): Start Duet on your Mac and the device you wish to connect wirelessly. Make sure you are signed in to your account on both devices. The available devices will appear on the Mac Duet app. Simply click on the "Connect" button (as shown in the image below) to start the wireless connection.

Remote desktop connections (iOS, Android, PC, and Mac): Make sure Duet is installed, opened, and your are signed in on both devices. The available devices will appear on the Mac Duet app. If the devices do not appear, please go to the setting and verify the box for "Screen Sharing Enabled" is checked. To start the connection, go to the device that will be used to mirror/extend your Mac screen and select to either "Mirror" or "Extend".

Once connected, on the Mac Duet app you will see some information regarding the device and it's connection, along with some adjustable options at the bottom. These options are the frame rate, performance, and resolution.
