OnePlus Mac file transfer and sync software like MacDroid and SyncMate can help you quickly and easily transfer and sync files such as photos, videos, music, and more from your OnePlus phone to your Mac and vice versa. In this article, we’ll tell you all you need to know about MacDroid and SyncMate and look at easy ways to transfer and sync files between your OnePlus phone and Mac.
MacDroid is an Android file transfer software designed for Mac. It allows you to connect your OnePlus phone - or any other Android phone - to your Mac and perform a OnePlus Mac file transfer between your phone and Mac. The free version enables you to transfer as many files as you want from your OnePlus to Mac, but if you want to transfer files from Mac to OnePlus, you’ll need to upgrade to the Pro version.
MacDroid offers a free seven-day trial where you can enjoy access to all the Pro features of the app for seven days. It also offers a choice of a OnePlus Mac ADB driver as well as MTP mode, and is easy to use, even for beginners.

Just follow our handy step-by-step guide below to transfer files between your OnePlus phone and your Mac.
Connect your OnePlus phone to your Mac via a USB cable - and ensure your phone is turned on and unlocked.
You should also see a pop-up window on your phone screen. Select “File Transfer”.
You can copy and paste files or drag and drop them between Mac and OnePlus as you usually do in Finder. It's that simple!
SyncMate is sync software designed for Mac which allows you to sync your OnePlus phone wirelessly (or any iOS or Android device) with your Mac. Using SyncMate means your calendar appointments, contacts, and files will be up to date across all your devices. It’s free to use the app to sync your contacts and calendar appointments.
You can sync almost any other type of data by upgrading to the Expert Edition for $39.95. SyncMate even lets you sync data from your Mac with the Cloud and Microsoft services, like your OneDrive storage or Office 365.
Note that before attempting to connect your phone to your Mac wirelessly, you’ll need to connect it via USB first, so that the SyncMate module installs on your phone. To do this, open SyncMate on your Mac. In the left hand panel of the main menu, select “Add New Device” and select your device type, in this case “Android Phone”. Now, connect your device to your Mac via USB.
SyncMate will automatically install on your phone. Once it’s finished, just follow the below step-by-step guide to sync your OnePlus phone wirelessly with your Mac using SyncMate:
