A wireless dongle that lets you use an iPad as your Mac’s secondary display. Unlike its competitors, Luna uses your Mac’s GPU to ensure a clean and responsive experience. Touch gestures and peripherals will still work on the iPad while it’s showing Mac OS.
Hong Kong startup PlaySomeToys is working on a line of figures inspired by product designs from the ’80s and ’90s. Their first toy is this anthropomorphic computer that looks like the original Apple Macintosh. The 3.9″ tall plastic figure comes with a font suitcase and a mouse.
Apple replaced the 9.7″ iPad Pro with one that’s virtually the same size and weight but has a 10.5″ screen. The new iPad Pro’s display offers up to 120Hz refresh rate, increased brightness, and reduced reflectivity. It will ship with iOS 11, which has many enhancements for tablets.

“People who think it’s stupid or unnecessary to have four cameras don’t understand… you can take one picture and you’ll have four of that same exact picture!” Nigahiga takes on the latest, slightly better iPhone with his prediction of where Apple will take things in 2017.
