Astropad, Luna Display updated with support for M1 Macs

Credit: Astropad

Astropad on Friday updated its Astropad and Luna Display apps to support Macs with Apple's new M1 chip.

The software company creates apps that allow users to leverage their iPads as drawing tablets or secondary devices for their macOS devices. Prior to the Sidecar feature in macOS Catalina, Luna Display was one of the more popular methods for extending a Mac's screen to an iPad.

Astropad's new update on Friday optimizes both apps to run smoother and with better performance on the M1 MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini.

The native Apple Silicon support is available in Astropad Studio version 3.6, Astropad Standard version 3.6, and Luna Display version 4.4.

New users can download the software from Astropad's website, while existing users should see the updates appear in their apps automatically.
