Apple Could Allow iPad To Be Used as External Display and Run Mac Apps With macOS 10.15

External Display and Run Mac Apps

As we are very close to WWDC 2019 and what will surely be the first outing of macOS 10.15, we’re now starting to learn more and more about what that will exactly look like.

Now, according to the report of Apple is working on a solution that is similar to the popular Luna Display which allows Mac users to use their iPad as an external display.

Luna Display is one of the most popular third-party apps and dongle that makes this possible right now. However, the report says that Apple is working on bringing a similar feature to macOS 10.15 and that it will permit a user to send an app from their Mac to an external display whether that would be a monitor or even an iPad.

The new feature is said to carry the code name Sidecar within Apple, with the feature opened by hovering the mouse over the green maximize button that all the Mac apps have. It will then present options for opening the window in full screen, tiled, or you can move it to an external display.

This feature as a whole sounds essentially like AirPlay, but ultimately much more advanced. Support for the Apple Pencil will be added, that allows users to effectively draw on Mac apps as if they were using a Wacom tablet.

All of this is expected to debut during the macOS 10.15 announcement which is in June, with a launch for the public expected around the time of October. If previous development cadence is to be trusted, then we can expect a developer beta to be made available following WWDC’s opening keynote, too.
