You may be familiar with the Astropad software, which mirrors the Mac's display to an iPad, but the Luna Display extends the Mac's display to the iPad instead of mirroring it for full second screen functionality.
Using Mini DisplayPort or USB-C, the Luna Display plugs right into your Mac and then works with the iPad using the Luna Display software for Mac and iPad. Setup takes just a few seconds and the device works over a Wi-Fi connection.
At $80, the Luna Display is an affordable option for those who want a second portable display for the Mac that's perfect for use both at home and when on the go. The connection between the two devices is seamless with little to no lag depending on your connection.
Luna Display works with any modern iPad, dating back to the iPad 2, along with the iPad mini and the iPad Pro. Newer iPads will perform better, of course, due to the faster hardware. You can also use the Luna Display with any 2012 or later Mac.
We've even set up an iPad Pro as a display for a Mac mini using the Luna Display, as seen in our video below, and it worked well.
