Diagram of connecting multiple monitors via Adapter(s).
Connecting adapters that do not have a USB-C output is possible only by using a USB-C Multiport / Hub. Adapter(s) are connected to the USB-C Hub, and the USB-C Hub to your MacBook. This configuration is the most convenient when we want to connect only two external monitors, one of which is connected natively via a DisplayPort or HDMI to USB-C cable, which we plug directly into the MacBook, and the other through the Adapter - to the Multiport. But for three and more displays, we recommend these Docking Stations or USB-C Hubs.
