Dual Display for MacBook
Not all MacBooks support dual screen displays. This depends on the model of the computer as well as the CPU. See the following list for how many external displays are supported by your computer.
Max. one external display
- M1 MacBook Air 13”
- M2 MacBook Air 13”
- M2 MacBook Air 15″
- M1 MacBook Pro 13”
- M2 MacBook Pro 13”
Max. two external displays
- M1 Pro MacBook Pro 14” and 16”
Max. four external displays
- M1 Max MacBook Pro 14” and 16”
The Unisynk 10 Port Dual Display USB-C Hub for Mac will work with a 13” MacBook M-chip laptop but only with one external display even though the hub itself supports two external displays. The hub still works fully with other MacBooks and enables you to use two external displays to maximize your productivity.

What is M1 and M2?
M1 and M2 are CPUs, Central Processing Units. CPU is often called the brains of the computer. The M1 and M2 CPU is based on RISC-architecture. Simply put, it is a phone CPU that is beefed up.
The benefit of this is that some calculations are done faster which results in a faster computer. However, at the moment M1 and M2 only have Single Stream Transport which means that they only support one external display.
