Can You Play It on Mac?

Yes, you can play Apex on Mac however it's not a simple case of download and play. The game currently doesn't support Mac OS. You can use one of these three alternatives to be able to play the game on your Mac.

1. Stream From a Console

Consoles are getting smarter and smarter recently. This means that, for some, you will be able to stream your Apex game from your console to your computer (Mac included). One of the most useful apps for this is Sony's Remote Play. You will need to download the app on your console and on your Mac. All you must remember is that you need to have a good internet connection or risk having a laggy game.

2. Cloud Streaming

There are a few online game-streaming services that will let you stream Apex Legends to your Mac. One of the biggest ones is GeForce NOW, but you can get it on Vortex too. However, there is a catch to doing this as you will need a very strong and stable internet connection to get high-quality gameplay.

3. Install Windows

This is a slightly more complicated way of getting Apex Legends on your Mac, but it will pay off in the long run. You can install Windows and Windows Applications on your Mac by using Boot Camp. However, if you do this, you cannot use the Windows operating system at the same time as Mac OS. This means that if you want to play Apex Legends, you will need to start up the computer and switch to the Windows system. It can be quite a fiddly process but it is a good way around streaming the game if your internet isn't strong enough.

These are the main ways we have found to play Apex on your Mac. If we find more, we will update this page.
