okay so you have a mac mini and an ipad

lying around

prepare to have your minds blown like

mine was like legit

what is up guys my name is josef zain

and today we're talking about

how to make your mac mini pretty much

portable enough to use anywhere around

the house

how to turn your ipad into the only

monitor you're gonna need for your mac

mini

and number three how to use mac os and

all the other mac os software such as

even final cut pro

on your ipad all that and more now let's

unpack

and know for those of you guys who are

like oh this is just sidecar no this is

not sidecar like you can't do this stuff

with sidecar

it's too limited and for those also

wondering yes you can do it with both

intel and m1

so if you're anything like me i've

always used like a laptop pretty much

docked to my editing station back there

enter

m1 season and you know all these new

macs have got me super intrigued

so i got i picked up the mac mini and i

hooked it up and

i loved the fact that you know there was

something just there always hooked up

but i i craved that portability so i

started looking into different

options and then i got reminded i made a

video on something like this

about like a year ago or something like

that enter luna display so luna display

is basically like a hardware solution

that you kind of just

plug into your mac and you can either

wirelessly

through wi-fi or through usb connect one

mac to another or a

mac to an ipad or something like that to

basically just do some screen sharing

or screen mirroring or anything like

that but there's some cool things you

can do with this

they have something called headless mode

where you can connect your mac mini to

your ipad

and you don't you don't need like a

secondary monitor or anything like that

you can literally just have the ipad as

your primary editing monitor or primary

monitor

it has super low latency so it's like 16

milliseconds or something like that so

it's really quick like there's barely

like you can't even notice

any lag now caveat here in order for it

to have super low latency you have to

have a solid wi-fi connection if you

don't then probably just better off

keeping it plugged in

because it works fantastic when it's

plugged in all times

actually you know what i'm so excited

i'm i'm not gonna film like this let me

show you right now

okay so i've already gone through like

the whole setup and everything already

so i'm just gonna show you how seamless

it works

uh let's just do it right now so now i'm

gonna do is go

into the luna display app so that's

opening there

now i'm gonna take this dongle um and

i'm gonna plug it in

if i can find it boom plugged in

um let's just shake the mac up

make sure it wakes up and we wait

boom right there right there people you

saw how quick that was

if you see how like the mouse and

everything works fine i just entered in

my passcode

boom there you have it folks

this is your mac os

it's literally just running on that one

screen which is so cool

okay so one of the issues that i've

actually been having is during like the

evening time when my wi-fi gets really

bad and like

a whole bunch of people like start using

wi-fi now um

my thing starts getting laggy right and

that's when i just connect it through

usbc

and it just works perfectly fine so

that's what i'm gonna do right now

if i can do this one-handedly okay

and boom now we have like a super

seamless experience you see that like

no leg at all i can open up like

anything like

i'm just moving around windows it works

perfectly just like

any monitor uh generally would um

let's go to youtube and see how well

something something

uh functions we're gonna watch chris's

video

you see how it's so clean i'm gonna put

the volume down so i can talk

it is so clean it runs fluid like there

are

like zero issues uh in terms of how it

runs especially when you're plugged in

so as you can see now i don't have the

usb connection

on it like it's all through wi-fi and

you can see like it's it's usable like

you know it's not that it's not that

laggy

right like i just want to copy this

color grade over to this one

paste like this is very editable i could

edit off this no issues

and like you can hear see like sometimes

it's just a little bit choppy

over here but for the most part like

this is this is perfectly fine to edit

with

and you can see now like i can actually

like scrub through my timeline and

everything like that

so it's like you can actually use touch

inputs

for uh you know mac os

which is kind of cool like i can go here

i can like do stuff move stuff around

basically your finger becomes like a

cursor

if you want more precise control you can

even just use your

uh apple pencil uh everything is

controllable with your finger you can go

into like control center

do whatever you need to do um but yeah

it's pretty cool okay so as you guys saw

that's how you can have your mac mini

pretty much plugged into the ipad as

your only primary monitor you can even

use your ipad anywhere around the house

as long as you have a strong enough

wi-fi connection uh you can just

basically mirror your mac and just use

that for editing on final cut or

whatever you need to you can access all

the hard drive everything of your mac

mini

because you're essentially just

replicating your mac mini

desktop so that is pretty cool another

neat thing is whatever keyboard or mouse

that you have connected to your ipad

you can also use with uh luna display so

you could have like the magic keyboard

for example connected and you

can have the trackpad support the

keyboard support and all of that to use

in mac os uh on your ipad now you're

probably wondering to see if can't you

do

some of this stuff with sidecar why

should i go pay for like luna display

when i can just get it for free with

sidecar but there are several things you

can't do with

sidecar that you're going to need

something like luna display for for

example if you want to use your mac mini

with your ipad as your only monitor so

you don't need to have

your mac mini docked in or plugged into

a secondary monitor

at all times then you need luna display

because that's the only way it's going

to work

also there's no touch input like you

can't actually touch the screen when

you're using sidecar

but with luna display you can actually

use the touch screen as well and

basically use touch with mac os and last

but not least luna display works with a

lot more older mac models and a lot more

older ipad models as well

and on previous ios and previous mac os

versions as well so it's just a little

more flexible when it comes to something

like that

now there's a couple downsides that i

also wanted to mention if you don't have

a strong enough wi-fi connection you are

gonna have some screen

issues where it's just gonna be a little

bit jittery and if you're like playing

back something or anything then you're

gonna notice that little bit of jitter

secondly it does take up a usb or a

display port you can get either a

version

connection on your mac mini uh or your

any mac for that matter of fact

uh but you can't plug it into an adapter

basically so you have to use

up a port that's on your mac last but

not least

is the price and coming in at about 80

bucks usd

this thing is pretty hefty for a screen

share feature

um albeit yes it does it in a good way

and it has

a few nice party tricks up its sleeve

but

80 is pretty hefty so you got to really

see if this is something that

you want to build into your workflow and

if you can see this being built into

your workflow

like let's say for example you travel

around and sometimes you want to have

the option of just taking your mac mini

and just plugging into your ipad and

just using it portable somewhere

then this is a pretty cool option so

basically at home saying is you got to

know that you're going to use this

as part of your workflow or if you just

want to see something cool then

sure get it and just check it out and

see if it works for you that's pretty

much it from my end i hope you found
