Apple Silicon Mac & CalDigit Dock Compatibility

Yesterday, November 10th 2020, Apple announced a new line of Mac computers featuring their new M1 Silicon Chip which includes 16 billion transistors, adding better performance and battery life.

We know that our customers will want to know about compatibility between the new M1-based Macs and CalDigit’s docking solutions.

All of CalDigit’s 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 any dock, 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 Windows PC users can still benefit from dual “Extended” displays when using CalDigit docks.

This is not a limitation of CalDigit’s Thunderbolt or USB-C docks, but of the Thunderbolt 3 ports on the new M1-based Macs.

All other functionality of our docks including laptop charging will work as normal.

If you have any questions please email support@caldigit.com.
