The software-only solution to extending a Mac's desktop onto an iPad has been updated. It now offers second or mirror screens on Macs, PCs and iPad. Plus a new feature lets users log into their Mac remotely.
Continuity Sketch and Markup are two new Sidecar-related features that allow you remotely draw graphics or annotate documents from any iPad or iPhone capable of running iPadOS 13 or iOS 13, along with any Mac that can support the new macOS Catalina.
Shortly before Apple releases its Sidecar feature in macOS Catalina to allow Mac screen mirroring and extension onto iPads, the makers Duet Display are soon to release a version that will allow users to use an Android tablet as a Mac display.
Sidecar, a feature in macOS 10.15 Catalina that can turn an iPad into a second monitor for a Mac, may be limited to only a small selection of newer Macs at first, with the first beta of the operating system preventing it from being used on a large number of older Macs.
In macOS Catalina, an iPad running iPadOS can be a secondary display for your Mac with a single click using Sidecar. Here is everything you need to know to use Sidecar for yourself, when Catalina and iPadOS ship.
