Achieving the Universal Control Dream

Achieving the Universal Control Dream

For the past month or so, I’ve been talking on AppStories and Connected about my new desk setup, which involves an iPad Pro and Apple Studio Display. Here’s a quick recap for those who don’t listen to the shows and may be new to this whole saga:

After buying a house earlier this year, I was convinced I wanted to find a monitor for my new office that would serve both as a work and gaming monitor. My original plan was to set up my gaming PC in the office, have a single monitor for both work and play, and switch a Thunderbolt cable between the PC, iPad Pro, and MacBook Pro, depending on what I wanted to do. Over the past few weeks, however, I’ve realized that I prefer playing videogames on my new couch with a 55" (now 65") OLED TV (an LG C2), which in turn helped me understand that I didn’t need a gaming monitor for my office after all. I wanted a display that would look nice and easily connect to either the Mac and iPad with as few complications as possible. It became clear very quickly that what I wanted was a Studio Display, so I purchased one.
