Yam Display for macOS High Sierra.

Extend Display by AirPlay® for macOS High Sierra (10.13.4 ~ 10.13.6)
Yam Display uses AirPlay® to extend display for macOS High Sierra (10.13.4 ~ 10.13.6) due to an issue. There can be issues for older Macs (released before 2011) that do not support AirPlay mirroring. Resolutions are limited to horizontal ones. The issue was resolved in macOS Mojave in which full screen resolutions including portrait mode were restored.

Yam Display does not connect.

When Yam Display is running with USB connected but still in ‘Wait for connection’ state, follow these steps. Try again after each step:

  1. Restart Yam Display on your iPad/iPhone (running in the background).
  2. Unplug USB cable and plug in again.
  3. Check if your device is recognized by iTunes. If not, please check out this guide.

For some cases macOS Sierra does not recognize connected devices after reboot. Reconnecting USB cable may solve this issue.
