USB-C Triple 4K display Docking Station

I purchased the docking station to plug in three Apple Studio Displays. I am only plugging in one studio display while waiting for others to arrive. I follow the instructions. Plug in the Docking station. I then connect the USB-C cable to my macbook pro and the Docking Station as indicated. I then use a Plugable USB-C to Display port adapter and plug that in. No response?

Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you for contacting us, I am sorry, our USB-C Triple Display Docking Stations are not compatible with Apple’s Studio Displays.

The Apple Studio Display requires a direct Thunderbolt connection to the host computer and will not be detected when connected through a USB-C docking station. Depending on the specific model MacBook the system may support one to three Apple Studio Displays. For example the MacBook Pro 13-inch 2020 and newer models can only support a single external display, however the MacBook Pro 16-inch 2021 with M1 Max processor can support up to three of these displays, each connected directly to the MacBook Pro.

Additionally, USB-C to DisplayPort adapter cables are one-way adapters from a USB-C port on a compatible computer to a DisplayPort input on a display, they will not work in reverse to connect from a DisplayPort output on the docking station to a Thunderbolt input on the Apple Studio Display.

I am sorry this docking station is incompatible with the Apple Studio Display, the docking station may be used to connect up to three DisplayPort or HDMI displays to the computer.
