Luna Display is a rather inexpensive hardware dongle, USB-C or mini DisplayPort, that allows you to turn an iPad into a wireless second touch monitor for your Mac. Although there are apps on the market that provide similar functionality, those are primarily software based, which can introduce more lag and reduced image quality. They also usually require you to be tethered to your laptop via lightening cable, which also affects the Mac’s CPU and battery life. In comparison, Luna is much faster and more responsive with much better screen quality since it’s hardware based.
Possible Use Cases:
- For those who travel, it can increase productivity by expanding your workspace.
- For faculty and instructors, this can be extremely useful for demonstrating Mac applications while remaining mobile.
- For anyone wanting a second monitor that’s touch.
Good information. Lucky me I came across your blog by chance (stumbleupon). I’ve book marked it for later!|
Thanks for the feedback. I wrote a follow-up article, listed below, that eliminates the need for the purchase of the Luna dongle after the release of MAC OS Catalina which includes the Sidecar feature.
