The LG UltraFine 4K Display is Crowned by Apple as its Preferred Display for the MacBook Pro (Late 2016)
The MacBook Pro (Late 2016) removed the Mini DisplayPort and HDMI connectors found on previous generations of MacBook Pro's. So how do you connect displays to the Thunderbolt 3 enabled USB Type-C ports found on the Mac?
In a way, the LG UltraFine 4K Display replaces Apple's own legacy Thunderbolt Display which also didn't have other video connectors other than Thunderbolt. However, one important difference though is that LG UltraFine 4K Display doesn't support Thunderbolt itself- rather, it supports DisplayPort Alt-Mode, USB 2.0, and USB Power Delivery over USB Type-C. That means it doesn't have enough bandwidth to support other features like Ethernet, SD Card, USB 3.1 Gen 1, etc. which are found on other docks.
