  • Not with this adapter and I do not know of any that will. However, the USB-C port on the MacBook does support DisplayPort, so with the proper cable, USB-C to Display Port, you could use the older 24" and 27" Apple Cinema Displays (or other DisplayPort displays.) Caveat, I have yet to find a DisplayPort/Cable adapter or hub that has a pass through charging USB-C port. You can not use, at this time, a DisplayPort display and charge the MacBook at the same time.

  • No, Thunderbolt and USB-C are two different connection types. The Thunderbolt cable from your monitor will NOT work with this adapter or with the new MacBook.
