The LG UltraFine Display has a great design, having a high-resolution screen, but also a plug-and-play connectivity suitable for your USB-C outfitted MacBook. There are exceptions, too. Unfortunately, the new display from LG it diminishes the charm of the MacBook Pro Touch Bar, and it does not use Thunderbolt 3. Those who own a screen like the one launched by LG then they already know how simple it can be to set it up.
You have to plug-in the power adapter first directly into the wall and then into the slot of the screen. Then, you need to use the USB-C cable to connect the MacBook to the right port located on the back of your display. The display is not equipped with buttons. Everything will automatically function. If you need to access the field settings, you will just need to use the MacOS to adjust the display.
The display is also equipped with stereo speakers, but no camera. Apple’s new device, the MacBook with USB-C offer the possibility to transmit through a cable audio, display, data and power. Thus, users no longer need to plug their MacBooks into the wall because the power is provided through the display using a cable.
This perfect collaboration between the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and the LG UltraFine Display just makes everything much easier for users. In a grant designed to allow the LG monitor to work with Apple’s MacBook, the LG UltraFine Display can transmit due to the USB-C protocol, not by using Thunderbolt 3.
This implies that if you connect your LG display to the latest MacBook, you will not be able to tap into the full likelihood of the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port on your device. The 12-inch MacBook is outfitted with a single USB-C port for both data and charging. Unfortunately, the USB-C port cannot use Thunderbolt 3.
Thunderbolt 3 has its ups and downs too. Even if it allows you to perform transfers at a much higher speed, it is restrictive when it comes to the new MacBook Pro. The capabilities of the LG display are somehow limited because it transfers data and videos over USB-C and not Thunderbolt 3.
