Feature request: Level Sidecar with portrait orientation support for iPad

Since the end of last year, I’ve been using Apple’s fantastic Sidecar feature that makes it a breeze to optimize my iPad Pro as a second screen for my MacBook Pro. All in all, I’m having an excellent experience as I’m using this configuration, and jumping to an external screen, but there’s an improvement that I’d really like to see come to Sidecar…

If you haven’t used Sidecar yet, and compatible on Mac and iPad, it is really worth trying. My colleague Zac has a really useful guide on getting started and going further with transform your iPad into a second wireless (or wired) to the screen of your Mac with a Side-car.

My only hang up apart from a few small quirks, it is because only landscape orientation is supported now for iPads with Side-car. I would really like to see the portrait orientation for an even better experience.

For my own use case, the portrait of my Sidecar screen would be useful content that I will often have Slack or a second browser window open on my 11 inch iPad Pro when it is connected to my MacBook Pro 15-inch. The vertical real estate would be more useful to opt for the width.

I imagine that there are many cases of use of encoders for musicians, creative professionals, and the many other people who would love to have a portrait Sidecar installation, whether for mobile use in large external monitors or perhaps even for a primary use.

What do you think? Do you want to see Apple update the Sidecar with the portrait support? This use case would you find useful?

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
