    I was just in the Apple Store and they now use the LG displays with the Mini and MacPro. I didnt check the adapter and port used.

  • Just hooked up the 27UD58-B - 27” Ultra HD IPS 4K Freesync Monitor no thanks to Apple support. Had HDMI connected. Couldn't get it to work. 45 minutes with Apple - they said it couldn't be done. Called LG. She had me switch the connections on the cable - yes, just unplug and replug other ends. I got the Mac mini "which language screen." Only problem - didn't have ability to click!! Had to borrow a wired mouse to get started.

  • Sorry to say, it doesn't

    I will list the reason why it doesn't (also you can redirect to the Apple Product Specs page to see for yourself)

    Mac Mini supports video output up to:
    - two displays at 2560 by 1600 pixels, both at millions of colors

    - Thunderbolt digital video output

    - Native Mini DisplayPort output:
    -- DVI output using Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter
    -- VGA output using Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter
    -- Dual-link DVI output using Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter
    -HDMI video output:
    -- Support for 1080p resolution at up to 60Hz
    -- Support for 3840-by-2160 resolution at 30Hz
    -- Support for 4096-by-2160 resolution at 24Hz


    And the LG 4K display runs at: Resolution: 4096-by-2304 with support for millions of colors
    and it can only be running on an USB-C output enabled Mac.

  • No, the LG Ultrafine 4K displays are not compatible with the Mac Minis.

    System requirements and compatible Mac models

    The LG UltraFine 4K Display requires a Mac with one or more USB-C ports, running macOS Sierra 10.12.1 or later. (macOS Sierra 10.12.2 or later is recommended.)

    You can use the LG UltraFine 4K Display with these Mac models:
    4096 x 2304 @ 60Hz
    MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2016)
    MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
    4096 x 2304 @ 48Hz
    MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015)

    A Mac with built-in USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports is required; the display isn't compatible with Mac models that use Thunderbolt 2.
