Popular “second display” iPad app Duet Display has received some nice update love. gaining a new feature that gives you access to a virtual Touch Bar on the iPad’s screen. The feature allows users without a Touch Bar-equipped Mac to tap into functionality that normally wouldn’t be available.
The iPad Touch Bar displays what a user would normally see on a Touch Bar on MacBook Pro models equipped with a Touch Bar, while in an app such as Final Cut Pro, Photoshop, or the Messages app, as seen above. On MacBook Pro models with the new feature, the iPad Touch Bar display mirrors what is seen on the laptop’s touch-sensitive OLED display bar.
While users may find using a Touch Bar on their iPad’s display a bit more bothersome than using the real thing, the feature is more than handy for users with no Touch Bar on their Mac, or for users who may use their MacBook Pro closed, in a dock.
To make use of the feature, your will need to be running macOS 10.12.2 and the latest versions of Duet Display for both the Mac and the iPad. The new version of Duet Display for Mac also brings iPad Keyboard compatibility and Apple Pencil pressure improvements.
The update is free to current Duet Display users, and new users can purchase the app for $9.99 for a limited time only. [GET IT HERE]
