Moonlight for iOS and tvOS


  • Install Xcode 13 from the App Store page
  • Run git clone --recursive
    • If you've already clone the repo without --recursive, run git submodule update --init --recursive
  • Open Moonlight.xcodeproj in Xcode
  • To run on a real device, you will need to locally modify the signing options:
    • Click on "Moonlight" at the top of the left sidebar
    • Click on the "Signing & Capabilities" tab
    • Under "Targets", select "Moonlight" (for iOS/iPadOS) or "Moonlight TV" (for tvOS)
    • In the "Team" dropdown, select your name. If your name doesn't appear, you may need to sign into Xcode with your Apple account.
    • Change the "Bundle Identifier" to something different. You can add your name or some random letters to make it unique.
    • Now you can select your Apple device in the top bar as a target and click the Play button to run.
