Luna Display Releases

Ethernet and Thunderbolt Support for Mac-to-Mac Mode

More ways to work in Mac-to-Mac Mode with Ethernet and Thunderbolt support

Luna Display’s Mac-to-Mac Mode allows you to use any Mac as a second display, with full trackpad and keyboard support for both devices. 

Previously, Mac-to-Mac Mode only worked over Luna’s wireless connection. With today’s update, Mac-to-Mac Mode will also support Ethernet and Thunderbolt connection between Macs, with a seamless set-up process.

This will improve the Mac-to-Mac Mode experience for users with limited WiFi connection or who prefer not to connect wirelessly, as they’ll now have the option for a wired connection.
