We know that our customers want to know about compatibility between the new M1-based Macs and Satechi’s adapter solutions.
All of Satechi’s USB-C docks are fully compatible with the new M1-based Macs including the ability to charge a laptop and more.
However, the only limitation is that the new M1-based Macs cannot support dual “Extended” displays through their Thunderbolt 3 ports.
This means that when using an adapter, users cannot extend their desktop over two displays, and will be limited to either dual “Mirrored” displays or 1 external display depending on the dock.
Users with Intel-based Macs and (some) Windows 10 PC users can still benefit from dual “Extended” displays when using Satechi DUAL docks.
- This is not a limitation of Satechi’s USB-C docks, but of the Thunderbolt 3 / USB4 ports on the new M1-based Macs.
All other functionality of our docks including laptop charging will work as normal.
We hope this information is able to provide further clarification and guidance!
We are currently working on being able to make these adapters fully compatible with this new lineup of Macs with this new processor.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you were to have any further inquiries we can address for you!
