Secondary display firms are among the newest to get a taste of Sherlocking after Apple introduced Sidecar as part of the recent Catalina update. Truthfully, the feature is way and away from the best thing in regards to the newest version of macOS, and, as several third-party app developers have discovered over the decades, it’s hard to compete with native support.
For Duet Display, staying relevant meant adding Android tablet support. For Luna Display makers Astropad, it’s finding a way for users to clean their outdated Macs. An update being released today brings the feature to the dongle-based technology.
Mac-to-Mac lets Luna users use older Mac units as second screens, so you can, say, wireless connect a MacBook too, say, a Mac mini, iMac, or even another MacBook. It’s probably much less useful for most users than simple iPad connectivity, however, there’s something to be said for something that puts outdated systems to use. For Astropad’s sake, hopefully, Apple doesn’t feel the same way for its next update.
The primary system needs to run El Capitan or later, and the second must be on Mountain or newer. The connection works tethered or over Wi-Fi. The corporate is further offering a 25% discount on Luna for the next couple of days.
