Learn more about using external displays. For example, you can use Displays preferences to arrange displays so that your iPad extends the left, right, top, or bottom of your desktop.
If you hover your pointer over the full-screen button of a window, you can choose to move that window to or from your iPad display. It's faster than dragging the window, and the window is perfectly resized for your display.
The sidebar puts commonly used controls on the side of your iPad screen. It includes Command, Shift, and other modifier keys, so you can choose essential commands with your finger or Apple Pencil instead of a keyboard.
Use Sidecar preferences to turn off the sidebar or change its position.

Many apps on Mac have Touch Bar controls that make common actions even easier. With Sidecar, you get a Touch Bar on your iPad screen even if your Mac doesn’t have a Touch Bar. It works just like the Touch Bar on Mac, and you can tap its controls with either your finger or Apple Pencil.
Use Sidecar preferences to turn off the Touch Bar or change its position.
If the Touch Bar doesn't appear when using an app that offers Touch Bar controls, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Mission Control, then make sure that “Displays have separate Spaces” is selected.
Multi-Touch gestures on iPad remain available when using Sidecar. These gestures are particularly useful with Sidecar:
To point, click, select, and perform tasks such as drawing, editing photos, and manipulating objects on your iPad while it's extending or mirroring your Mac display, you can use your Apple Pencil instead of the mouse or trackpad connected to your Mac. You can also use it to write, sketch, and mark up documents while seeing the updates live on your Mac.
Sidecar also supports double-tap, which you can turn on in Sidecar preferences. Double-tap enables apps that support this feature to perform custom actions when you double-tap on the side of your Apple Pencil (2nd generation).
During your Sidecar session, you can type using a keyboard connected to either your Mac or iPad, including the Smart Keyboard or Magic Keyboard for iPad.
To point, click, or select with a mouse or trackpad, use the mouse or trackpad connected to your Mac, or use an Apple Pencil on your iPad.
While using Sidecar, you can switch to an iPad app, then interact with that app on your iPad as you normally would. This suspends your Sidecar session until you switch back to the Sidecar app or disconnect Sidecar. The Sidecar app appears on your home screen only while using Sidecar.
Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Sidecar. These preferences are available only on computers that support Sidecar.
Sidecar requires a compatible Mac using macOS Catalina and a compatible iPad using iPadOS 13:
This lil app exceeded my expectations by lightyears! It was easy to connect, and I cannot discern any lag at all! Very very cool and useful! I was very skeptical at first, but this app really does do what it is advertised to do! Neat way to use your iPad as remote control!
This app is easy to setup, and use. I enjoy the fact that you don't need a separate desktop 'helper' application to use it. It's very responsive.
For a low price, you've just bought yourself an awesome wireless mouse and keyboard that don't need batteries replacing every few weeks. Use it while giving presentations too. Great application, pretty and functional. Going to be a must-use for me. :-)
This is a fantastic app, when I first used it I was blown away by how remarkably similar it was to using a real trackpad and is very easy to use. It is perfect as a remote and I will definitely be using it in the future.
I can't believe the amount of money, and more importantly TIME I wasted on alternative remote control apps when all along this little diamond was buried in the trash heap of insubstantial glitz and glam. This little gem doesn't require a server or daemon to work and it sports a fair range of control elements positioned in all the right places. I can leverage all the important features of this remote with one hand. Finally, the badda-bing of iPhone remote control apps!
With the ability to access the keyboard, the modifier keys, navigation keys, AND a built in media remote, this version of Touchpad gets everything right. As an app that gets used on a regular basis this is worth far more than just a few dollars. Edovia hits a home run.
