Recommended Posts

Your setup is fine. On your side you may either use WireGuard or OpenVPN. You can't use them at the same time on the same machine. In many cases WireGuard can provide higher performance especially on devices without AES-NI acceleration, such as your iPhone. WireGuard kernel module, which plays an important role to make WIreGuard faster than OpenVPN, is not available in macOS, so you may also compare in your Mac OpenVPN vs. WireGuard and pick the one which can provide the better performance.

Kind regards
