Can this be used for target mode between a late 2013 MBP and the new 16 inch MBP? Is a gender changer required as well for this purpose?

Unclear which end of this adapter is the male and which is the female. Can I use this for target mode as is or do I need some sort of gender changer in addition?

  • Yes. The Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) end is male, the Thunderbolt 2 end is female. For the use you have described, you will also need a Thunderbolt 2 cable (male/male) to connect this adapter to your 2013 MBP's female Thunderbolt 2 port. So it will look like: 16 inch MBP>this adapter>Thunderbolt 2 cable>2013 MBP.
