  • It must be a Thunderbolt 3 port. Note that every USB-C port on the new (2016) MacBook Pro (13-inch without touch bar, 13-inch with touch bar and touch ID, 15-inch) is a Thunderbolt 3 port. However, this will not work with the 12" MacBook (non-Pro) because that only has USB-C, not Thunderbolt 3.
