In October, Astropad released Luna Display 5.0, which lets Mac and Windows users use an iPad as a secondary display. Today, the first announced a major upgrade to this very useful product, adding several new features.
“You asked… and we listened,” Astropad’s Savannah Reising writes. “We’re ending the year with a BANG and bringing to life some of the top feature requests from our users.”
Here’s what’s new.
4K and 5K support. Now, you can use a PC or Mac with a 4K or 5K display as a second display at full resolution. Luna Display now supports 5K at 30 Hz on PC, 5K at 45 Hz on Mac (Big Sur), and 4K at 60 Hz on Mac and PC.
PC-to-Mac mode. Now, PC users can use any Mac as a wireless second display. (Ethernet is recommended.)
Magic Keyboard support. Now, you can use an Apple Magic Keyboard and trackpad with your iPad while using Luna Display, with both Mac and PC.
Teleprompter mode for PC. Now, you can pair Luna Display with a beam splitter to give direct eye contact during video calls, Astropad says. “Teleprompter Mode automatically flips your display image, so that your beam splitter reflects the correct image orientation. It’s perfect for professional meetings, online teaching, or interviews.”
Office mode for PC. This feature is designed for users who work in an environment where there are multiple people using Luna. With Office mode enabled, Luna will no longer automatically connect to the first computer it finds on the network. Instead, you can connect via Wi-Fi Manual Connect or USB cable.
To get this update, you must update Luna Display on the primary and second devices.
