Luna Display lets you easily, quickly turn your iPad into a Mac display

“Need a secondary display for use with your Mac — or perhaps simply a display for that new Mac mini? Own an iPad?” Dennis Sellers writes for Apple World Today.If so, you’re in luck because the $79.99 Luna Display can turn an Apple tablet into a wireless second display for your Mac.”

“Available for Mini DisplayPort or USB-C systems, it’s quick and easy to set up and works with your existing Wi-Fi,” Sellers writes. “I use the USB-C Luna with a 2018 MacBook Air and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro.”

“Your 80 bucks gets you the Luna hardware unit (USB-C or Mini DisplayPort) along with access to the free Luna Display Mac and iPad apps. To start screen sharing, connect the Mac and the iPad to the same Wi-Fi network,” Sellers writes. “Plug the Luna Display into the Mac, run the macOS and iOS apps, and — voila! — the connection happens automatically.”

Use your iPad as a second display for your Mac – December 6, 2018


  1. I wouldn’t recommend Duet Display; I’ve been using Air Display for years and find it much much better. More reliable, better designed, faster, and unlike Duet it doesn’t have hidden subscription charges to use the full functionality. Haven’t tried Luna though.

    1. Air Display is very buggy. It doesn’t work well with Mojave.
      I used to use it, but got tired of fighting it when it broke each time Apple did an OP upgrade. Duet has been a dream. Yes, you need to subscribe ifs you want to use it wirelessly, but if you use it with a cable to your iPad, it’s the best option I’ve seen that just works.
