Here's how to run more external displays on your M1 Mac

The new M1 Macs are impressive but some power users are staying away from them for now because of their limited support for external displays.

According to the official specs, the M1 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air can power a single external display (up to 6K) while the Mac Mini can drive up to displays (one 6K, one 4K) because it has an additional HDMI port.

The workaround, as it turns out, is quite simple and requires an external dock (ideally a Thunderbolt 3 dock for maximum bandwidth) and various DisplayPort and HDMI adapters.

The adapters turn USB-C and USB-A ports into DisplayPorts so that they can be connected to an external display that accepts DisplayPort inputs.

You can find the adapters to do this from the StarTech Flagship Store on Lazada.

And if you are looking for a Thunderbolt 3 dock, consider the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Dock Pro.
