Mini Display port to Thunderbolt 3
on May 10, 2018 at 1:16:14 pm

Hey all -

I have a Apple Cinema display that uses the mini display connector. With my new MBP, I am looking for a way to convert the mini-display to T3. A T2 to T3 adapter does not work. Thanks in advance.

Relevant info here:

This would work (or one like it):

EDIT - If you're looking for more connectivity, a dock like this may be the right answer:

Thanks. Saw that and have looked at some converters online with many comments saying they don't work at all. Was hoping to hear from someone who has done it. Thanks again.

Isn’t that a Thunderbolt Display? In other words you can loop thunderbolt through it. So you would need to connect it with a thunderbolt cable, not a mdp cable. i have a TB2 LG display connected to a MBPro. I just use a TB3 to TB2 single off the MBPro, or off the OWC TB3 dock.

The mini-display connector will not work through a TB2 to TB3 adapter.
