Luna Display 5.0 comes to Windows for the first time, letting you use your iPad as a second display. And guess what? It works great.
“[With] Luna Display 5.0, [you can] use an iPad as a second display for your PC,” Astropad, makers of Luna Display, announced. “We completely rearchitected the apps to support both PCs and Macs, and added a new Luna Display HDMI unit.”
Previous versions of Luna Display worked only with the Mac, but the new version adds Windows 10/11 64-bit support, plus some significant setup improvements on M1-based Macs.
Luna Display 5.0 comes in three versions, USB-C, mini-DisplayPort, and HDMI. The USB-C and HDMI versions work with Windows PCs (and the USB-C version works across Macs and PCs). I’ve been testing the USB-C version of the dongle for the past month, and I will be discussing my experiences in my Premium series More Mobile. But I can say this for now: this solution works surprisingly well for productivity usage, with very little of the expected latency or lag issues.
