How to use your iPad as a second monitor.

There's absolutely no such thing as enough screen space, an extra monitor is one of the easiest and best productivity hacks. That iPad you already own? It's now capable of acting as a second monitor, extending your Mac workspace with ease without the need to invest in any new tech, thanks to Apple Sidecar.

This will work on any Mac running MacOS Catalina or later, and the following range of iPads:

  • iPad 6th Gen & newer
  • iPad mini 5th Gen & newer
  • iPad Air 3rd Gen & newer
  • iPad Pro all models

To get this setup and running, simply ensure both your Mac and iPad are logged into the same Apple ID. Apple Sidecar can work wirelessly or via USB connection. We suggest keeping your iPad connected to power if using it wirelessly.
