Has anybody come across somebody using iPhone hardware (intact/as is, or hacked, taken apart, disassembled. either way) to use the iPhone screen as a display monitor?

  • Don't take it apart - so much more fragile and you can enclose the phone in a box / enclosure if you feel that aesthetic if preferred... – bmike Oct 7 '15 at 0:04
  • I am also looking for information on this. I believe the asker is not only interested in using the included iPhone and wants to drive a screen through other means as well. At least that's what I'm looking for. I want to use the mass produced (see cheap) and excellent quality screens in some of my personal projects. Also as a user of Duet on all of my running devices (iPhones 6, SE, iPad Pro 9.7, 12.9) it works fantastic but it does not address the askers question and is ultimately detracting others from researching the topic for some unneeded free advertising. – rfoo Aug 17 '16 at 2:31

An app called Duet can make your iPhone a display for your Mac.

  • Also works for iPad! – Often Right Oct 7 '15 at 1:36
