    The USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter lets you connect your MacBook with USB-C port or MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports to an HDMI display, while also connecting a standard USB device and a USB-C charging cable.

    This adapter allows you to mirror your MacBook or MacBook Pro display to your HDMI-enabled TV or display in up to 1080p at 60Hz or UHD (3840 by 2160) at 30Hz. It also outputs video content like movies and captured video. Simply connect the adapter to the USB-C port on your MacBook or any of the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports on your MacBook Pro and then to your TV or projector via an HDMI cable (sold separately).

    Use the standard USB port to connect devices such as your flash drive or camera or a USB cable for syncing and charging your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. You can also connect a charging cable to the USB-C port to charge your MacBook or MacBook Pro.

    Note: The Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter is not compatible with the G-Tech G-DRIVE mobile USB 3.0 Hard Drive (Apple part number HF4F2VC/A).

      Expensive Piece of Junk

      If you'd like to spend 80 bucks on an accessory that will cause your external monitor to blink on and off all day long... look no further!!! This is the access If you'd like to spend 80 bucks on an accessory that will cause your external monitor to blink on and off all day long... look no further!!! This is the accessory you've been dreaming of. I've tried different monitors. I've tried different HDMI cables. Nothing seems to help. This thing is incredibly frustrating to use. If you do decide to call support, expect to be on the phone for an hour only to be told "try plugging it into another port" on your single port usb-c macbook...

      WARNING - Bad Hardware

      This adaptor has severe compatibility issues with external hard drives that can result in LOSS OF DATA. Apple even lists a few drives (including their own Super This adaptor has severe compatibility issues with external hard drives that can result in LOSS OF DATA. Apple even lists a few drives (including their own SuperDrive, pre 2011) than don't work with this adaptor, but there are more that don't work - both for storage OR Time Machine (!). This is really bizarre since the other USB-C to USB-A adaptor WILL work, but since this adaptor doesn't supply power to your MacBook, it's not a long term solution. In the instances where the Multiport adaptor DOES work with an external hard drive, it can experience drastically reduced speeds and randomly unmount the drive. The straight USB adaptor, with the same drive, does not show these issues. I can't believe Apple put this on the market without 1) more rigorous testing and 2) with this serious an issue. Having an external hard drive work with your laptop is a pretty important requirement. Terrible, terrible piece of equipment. I was an Apple employee and have worked with Macs for decades. This issue was diagnosed with a genius at an Apple Store after we went through several Multiport and regular USB adaptors, and then followed up with additional testing at home. Apple should be ashamed.

      Apple mis-advertises this product.

      It works for hdmi and usb 3.0 port. But the usb-c port is for charging only. You cannot cascade two adapters or another usb-c adapter by using the usb-c port. Y It works for hdmi and usb 3.0 port. But the usb-c port is for charging only. You cannot cascade two adapters or another usb-c adapter by using the usb-c port. You need to plug it into the macbook directly. I bought two of these adapters assuming they are standard usb-c ports... Now I need to plug 4 sockets instead of 2, everytime I move my laptop from my desk. 1 star for mis-advertising...

      frustrating and expensive disappointment

      I am on my third one of these adapters and its works sporadically - sometimes the HDMI monitor and USB drive work with this adpater and other times they do not. I am on my third one of these adapters and its works sporadically - sometimes the HDMI monitor and USB drive work with this adpater and other times they do not. Regardless of which port I plug it into, when it is not recognized, nothing makes it work. And when it won't connect/work it seems to inactivate all the other USB-c ports on my MacBook Pro with touchbar. In those instances I have found that putting the MBP to sleep rarely fixes the connection issue, so I end up rebooting the system to get this adpater to work.. When it works (maybe 1/3 of the time) it seems fine. I have updated the driver to 1.0 as recommended the first time I plugged in the adapter. I'm hopeful Apple fixes this issue. I need a reliable, functioning adapter for HDMI output.

Exchanged This adapter will NOT work with a external sad paged into it with Time machine. It says disk not available even though it is showing on the desktop. Exchanged adapter she issue. Plugging in the drive to a 2 dollar USB C adapter worked fine. I don't pay apple prices just to have a nonfunctional adaptor.
