What you need to know

  • Luna Display is being released with support for Windows 10.
  • Luna Display lets you use an iPad as a secondary display to your PC through a wireless or wired connection.
  • Luna Display is available for preorder on Kickstarter and should start shipping within six months.

Luna Display is a popular app that allows you to use your iPad as a second display for your computer. Previously, Luna Display was only available for Macs, but now it is on its way to Windows. Astropad, the makers of Luna Display, launched a Kickstarter today for the Windows version of the app. The lowest pledge that gets you access to Luna Display is currently $49.

Luna Display utilizes a small dongle that you place inside your PC. That dongle allows your computer to connect to your iPad wirelessly through Wi-Fi, though you can use it with a wired connection if you prefer.

Once connected, Luna Display acts like any other secondary monitor. You can drag apps back and forth between your two displays, interact with touch on your iPad, and even use the Apple Pencil to draw on your Windows apps.

Luna Display earned solid marks when our friends at iMore reviewed it a couple of years ago. The PC version should deliver similar results.

Generally speaking, you need to take caution when committing to a Kickstarter project. You should feel more comfortable with Luna Display, however, as it's been around for years on Mac.

  • What software/app would you recommend to convert a W10 tablet into a wireless display? (I know there is a build-in one but it is badly optimized if the wifi is mediocre)
  • None that wont corrupt your screen and drivers. I'll bet it will break the ipad as well.
  • And make it useful at last.
  • Never trust apple anymore with "workaround utility apps" they will kill it whenever they like. Unlike android I won't even be able to install if it gets removed from the store. 😑 Better use superdisplay app on android which already available for mere $15 for lifetime. Also provides input option on windows 10 PC and supports pressure sensitive styluses if your tablet supports it then you have the same capability on windows too via tablet screen 😁
