How to use Sidecar to make your iPad a secondary Mac display in macOS Catalina and iPadOS

If your Mac is running macOS Catalina, you can now use your iPad as a secondary monitor with the new “Sidecar” feature. It’s ridiculously easy to set up wirelessly through AirPlay.

First, a few notes. Unlike with some existing third-party screen-sharing apps such as Air Display 3, you can really only use your fingers on the display for simple actions such as scrolling through text.

The Apple Pencil works as a “mouse,” though—and that includes using it to alter and create images through the full version of Adobe Photoshop while we’re waiting on the proper iPad version to appear. Apart from the Apple Pencil, interaction involves a number of shortcuts on the borders of the interface—and you can press these with your fingers. Notably, Apple also includes relevant Touch Bar actions when someone is using an app on the iPad through Sidecar, so in Safari, for instance, you’ll see the visual toggle for the different tabs.
