    I have the UF 5k. Would this work with the new iPad pros through USB C?

    According to Apple, yes. It will mirror the iPad, and sometimes (in the case of video and photos) display full screen.

    Source? In a thread I made earlier the conclusion was that the 5K wouldn’t work with the iPad since it’s TB3, while the 4K would probably work.

    It will work @4k mirror not 5K. 5K is supported over T3 and 4K over USB-C. Simple as that.

    Yes, pretty sure it will not work at all with the 5k monitor

    They said it on stage at the keynote.

    In fact, watch the keynote to 55:30. “USB-C up to 5k.” And yes the UltraFine 5k supports Thunderbolt 3, but it’s also USB-C.

    Do we know why the USB-C enabled MacBook doesn’t mirror at all then? Just due to lack of processing power? I thought devices had to be Thunderbolt enabled to output to the UF 5K, while any USB-C device can output to the UF 4K.

    My guess is that it’s a limitation of the graphics card power? Who knows? I’m just repeating what Apple said on stage.

    In the keynote they say it can display out up to 5K. They never say it works specifically with the UF 5K.

    Well I’m not sure that I know of another 5k usb-c monitor that happens to look like the ones shown off in the photos and videos. ;)

    Also, on the tech specs it mentions being able to output 4K to a tv with the usc-c multi port adapter (which has hdmi).

    However, a quick screen grab from the promo shows the display connected and I’m pretty sure that it’s the 4K, as the bottom bezel on the 5k is larger. So it’s a bit confusing. I guess we will see for sure next week.
