The dongle “Luna Display”, which can turn an iPad into a Mac sub-display, is now compatible with Windows PCs with an update. It can be used by plugging it into a USB-C or HDMI terminal.
Make your iPad a sub-display on your Windows PC
Astro HQ’s “Luna Display,” which can turn an iPad into a Mac sub-display, was successfully fundraised on the crowdfunding site Kickstarer and went on sale in 2018.
In 2019, when the Sidecar feature was released on macOS Catalina, support for Windows was announced, but official support has just been announced.
Windows PC is compatible with USB-C model or HDMI model. However, it will not work properly via the adapter and must be attached to your PC’s USB-C or HDMI port.
Connections from Mac to iPad and from Mac to Mac are also supported as before. USB-C models and Mini DisplayPort models are available for Mac.
Wired is more practical than Wi-FI for connecting to iPad
You can connect to the iPad via Wi-Fi or with a USB-C or Lightning cable, but the impression that AAPL.ch was used from the beta version is that the delay is noticeable with the Wi-Fi connection, so you can use it while charging the iPad. The connection is more practical.
The required spec requirements for Windows are as follows:
- Windows 10 (64-bit) build 1809 or later
- CPU: Intel or AMD 64-bit processor over 2GHz
- RAM: 4GB or more
- GPU: Intel HD Graphics 520, AMD Radeon RX Vega 3, NVIDIA GeForce 820M or later or equivalent to or better than DirectX 11 compatible GPU
- Hard drive: 1GB
- Wi-Fi 802.11n or wired LAN
iPads are iPad mini (2013 and later iPad mini 2 and later models), iPad Pro (2016 and later models), iPad (2017 5th generation and later), iPad Air (2013 and later), iOS 12. It is a model after 1. 32-bit models are not supported.

The regular selling price of “Luna Display” is $ 129, but now it is $ 104 (about 11,800 yen), which is 20% off in the Windows compatible commemorative campaign, and the shipping fee to Japan is also free.
