  • Short answer: No.

    The Apple 4K TV has only an HDMI 2.0 output.

    The LG UltraFine 4K display only has a USB-C input. It uses USB-C with DisplayPort alt mode. The USB-C cable has wires for the DisplayPort signal, and wires for a USB 2.0 connection which the LG display uses for brightness control, audio, and its USB ports.

    Currently available HDMI 1.4 to DisplayPort adapters only support 4K 30Hz. Next year may see HDMI 2.0 converters that support 4K 60Hz but may cost up to $200.

    Other computer monitors have HDMI 2.0 inputs and DisplayPort 1.2 inputs.
