Duet Display is the first application that allows iPad owners to turn their devices into an extra display, courtesy of ex-Apple engineers. This tool is one of the most useful apps we’ve seen in long time — there is no latency due to the Lightning connection. The app’s Pro mode allows it to work as a fully sensitive-pressure display-integrated drawing tablet.

Speed, productivity, and interaction

Duet Display delivers Retina-level clarity 60 frames per second with no lag at all. This helps you increase your productivity by up to 48% according to Rahul Dewan, the app’s creator and engineer who worked for Apple.

With the help of this tool, you will be able to interact with your operating system more efficiently than you ever did before. You’ll also be able to add a Touch Bar to any iDevice from any machine by connecting your system running Sierra 10.12.2 and enabling the feature in the tool’s menu bar settings.

Duet Display compatibility

Here are the requirements you need to get things going with Dual Display:

  • OS X 10.9 or later // Windows 7 or later
  • iPads with iOS 7.0 and later // iPhones running iOS 7.0 and later.

You can download the desktop app for Windows at http://duetdisplay.com/windows.

Energy saving options

Duet Display offers energy-saving options for users of older computers that are not so powerful and offers the option to switch between a 30Hz and a 60Hz refresh rate. The tool works in both portrait and landscape mode.

For more information, you can check out Duet Display’s official support page.
