Dual Display Problem
The 2020 M1 MacBook Air and the 2020 M1 MacBook Pro 13″ does not currently support dual screen displays (Multi Stream Transport, MST).
This hub will work with a M1 laptop, but does not offer the possibility right now for two external displays even though the hub supports it. Connecting one display, through one of the HDMI ports, still work.
The hub still works fully with other MacBooks and makes it possible for them to have two external displays for maximizing your productivity.
The 2020 MacBook M1 does have a disproportionate amount of bugs with USB-C hubs. This is with all manufacturers. New patches alleviate alot of these problems.
Apple Patch Updates Concerning M1
This page will be updated as new confirmed information comes from Apple.
– Big Sur 11.3 Beta 3 helps with the the scalability of iPadOS apps on the M1’s. (Beta 7 has some bugs with thunderbolt 3 hubs crashing the M1 computer(ours are TB 3 compatible but shouldn’t be affected))
– Big Sur 11.2 helps with one display problem with the M1 Mac Mini(HDMI to DVI). 11.2.2 Helped with powered hubs damaging the laptop(we have not had a issue with this with our hubs)
– Big Sur 11.1 helped compatibility with LG ultrafine 5K monitors.
What is M1?
The M1 CPU is based on RISC-architecture. A simplification of what that means is that it’s a phone CPU that’s beefed up.
The benefit is that alot of calculations are done faster i.e. a faster computer. Right now the M1 only offer Single Stream Transport (one external screen).
The M1 is still in its early days and there will be a plentitude of bugs. If you get any in combination with our products, please report them to our support with as much info as possible so we can help you and others faster
