Expand Your Desktop onto Your iPad Pro

Now iPad Pro owners can utilize all that portable display space by expanding their laptop's desktop onto their tablet's screen
Tablets are pretty awesome, but there are plenty of reasons why you might prefer your Windows or OS X laptops or desktops for the task at hand - as anyone who has used a tablet for prolonged periods will no doubt know. Fortunately, the updated Duet Display app means that, even when you do opt for your laptop, you can still get the most from your shiny new Apple iPad Pro... by turning it into a second display and potentially doubling your visual real estate.
Duet Display is an app that's been around for a while, and it's never been anything less than incredibly reliable for us, however given the arrival of the new iPad Pro and its vastly improved resolution, plenty of behind the scenes work needed to be carried out in order to ensure that users were getting maximum use from every pixel on the device's display. On top of adding support for the new resolutions, the update also provides compatibility with the soon-to-be-launched USB 3.0 to Lightning cable from Apple, making lag free dual screen display possible.
