Newsflash! Use your iPad as a screen for Nintendo Switch with iPadOS 17

If you own an iPad and a Nintendo Switch, not only are you very lucky indeed, but you are about to be in for a real treat. Did you know that iPadOS 17 will allow you to connect your Switch to your iPad to take advantage of the glorious iPad screen? 

Sure, you've been able to play Switch games on your iPad via the Switch online app for some time, but thanks to new USB video capabilities released with iOS 17 (you'll need the beta version if you don't want to wait for the official release), you'll be able to play on your Switch and see the game on your iPad screen. Pretty cool, right? The only stipulation is you need an iPad with a USB-C input.
