Luna Display users rejoice as the app now lets you use any extra Mac into a second display for your primary Mac. With the new Mac-to-Mac mode in Luna Display 4.0, you can use an iMac, MacBook or MacBook Pro as a second display for your iMac, MacBook, or even a Mac mini.
For those who aren’t familiar, Luna Display offers a hardware solution to seamlessly extend your desktop from Mac to an iPad, or even use your Mac or iPad as the main display for Mac Mini and Mac Pro, completely wirelessly. The solution also allows you to move between the displays using a mouse and keyboard or the iPad’s touch screen for input.

Now with the new Mac-to-Mac mode, you can even use your MacBook as the main display for your Mac mini and have even more freedom and flexibility to work on the go.
“For example, if you have an iMac at your office, and a laptop that moves with you between work and home, pair your laptop with your iMac when in the office to make use of both devices. Or if you’re just working from home, pair your laptop to your iMac or Mac Mini and harness the power of those super computers from your comfy sofa. Get yourself a snack in the kitchen without having to miss a beat when your co-worker sends you a funny dog GIF! The possibilities are endless!”
Key features of the new Mac-to-Mac mode include the following:
- Mouse support for both computers
- Trackpad support for both computers
- Keyboard support for both computers
- Compatible with macOS 10.8 MountainLion or later.
