Always get the iPad and think about how much you can do if it just ran macOS? Now, a little red dongle does it's a reality.
Luna Display by Astropad is a small dongle that connects the MacBook to an iPad wireless and puts The board is in another display for the laptop. However, with Apple's long-awaited new Mac Mini now available, Luna Display tested whether its adapter would turn the new iPad Pro into a desktop touchscreen Mac.
In a blog post and a video listed below, Luna Display breaks down the result.
With the Luna Display dongle connected to the Mac Mini, a user only opens the Luna Display app on iPad. The video output is then pushed over WiFi from the Mac Mini to iPad. So, macOS does not really run on iPad, it just works like a display.
As you can see in the video, the coolest feature of the Luna Display is that all iPad touchscreen features still work. Luna Display is the closest you get to using a touch version of macOS. Luna Display also works with a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard.
Another nice feature of the Luna Display is that just pushing the MacOS screen to iPad through the app lets you open and close the app to switch back and forth between iOS and MacOS on iPad.
Luna Display dongle can be purchased from the Astropad website for $ 80. If you already have an iPad, this dongle can also be a good option for your Mac Mini, which does not come with a screen. And the touch screen will make all your friends with MacBook's jealous.
