I am attempting to connect an Apple Silicon Mac Mini, MacBook Air, and/or MacBook Pro to a 30" Apple Cinema Display at native
The same question for Intel Macs with USB-C is asked here:
I'm attempting to use the same chain of adapters as listed in those answers, which I have personally tested to work on an Intel USB-C Mac:
- M1 Mac (USB-C / Thunderbolt 3)
- USB-C to Mini DisplayPort adapter
- Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter
- Apple Cinema Display 30" (Dual-Link DVI)
However, this combination does not seem to work on my M1 Mac Mini.
I get no screen response on the M1 Mac. The monitor's power light is on, and USB-passthrough of my keyboard and mouse works fine, but the screen is not recognized by the Mac.
Do Apple Silicon Macs with Thunderbolt 3 require specific adapters, different from previous Intel Thunderbolt 3 Macs?
The Mac Mini-based Apple Silicon Developer Transition Kit (DTK) did not work with the Apple Cinema Display; I'm hoping that limitation was removed from the shipping version.
I'd like to continue to use the 30" Apple Cinema Display + Apple Dual Link DVI Adapter. Which additional adapters are needed to use that Mini DisplayPort output with an M1 Mac?
