Back to My Mac is an iCloud feature that allows users to network remotely with other Macs. We’ve written at length about the benefits of the Back to My Mac feature such as remotely controlling a Mac or retrieving files.
However, Apple has announced in a support document that Back to My Mac will no longer be available beginning with macOS Mojave, which will arrive sometime in September.
Apple’s support document makes the following recommendations for alternatives to Back to My Mac:
- Access files across your devices with iCloud Drive
- Access your other Mac with screen sharing
- Manage your Mac remotely with Apple Remote Desktop
We outline more about Apple Remote Desktop in this article, but it’s worth noting that the app costs $79.99 in the App Store and hasn’t been updated since 2017.
