Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: I connected the adapter but no image on my Monitor.

  • There are several different reasons why video is not showing
  • Your Monitor is the Thunderbolt version of Apple Cinema Display. You can check my finding the small icon on the white cable coming from your monitor. If showing a small Thunderbolt our adapter will not work, if showing a small square with two lines on the side our adapter will work as expected because your monitor is the Mini DisplayPort version of the Apple Cinema Display.
    Please make sure your apple monitor is connected to power and operational.

Q: Why I can not control the brightness, Audio, and the iSight Camera on my Apple Cinema Display?

  • You must connect the USB-A Cable from your Apple Cinema Display to your Laptop to be able to control brightness, audio, and iSight Camera.

Q: I am only getting 4K 30Hz when using the UPTab Adapter. How can I get 4K @ 60Hz?

  • There are several different reasons why a 4K display would be limited to 4K 30Hz using our adapter. We would recommend first checking:
  1. The USB C output port must support  DP1.4 ALT compliant to get 4K @ 60Hz or DP1.2 for 4K@30Hz.
  2. System specifications to ensure that the internal graphics processor can support 4K @ 60Hz and that the output port on the system/GPU can support 4K @ 60Hz.

  • USB-C to Mini DisplayPort Adapter

    Posted by Amadio Arboleda on Oct 5th 2022

    I tried different adapters to connect my new 2022 MacBook Air to an old Apple LED Cinema Display, but none worked until I got the UPTab adapter. Perfect match and great price.

  • Does the job!

    I needed to plug my Apple LCD Cinema Display into my new 2022 Macbook pro! Apple first sold me a thunderbolt to usbc adapter which, after an hour on the phone with applecare, I found out isn't the same as MiniDisplayPort even though the plugs are the same shape. And Apple doesn't make MDP to usbc adapters! This one came in clutch, and it works perfectly. I love that you can plug the charger into the adapter, too, so you don't "lose" your charging port (since the dumb macbook only has 2 usbc ports, to make life more difficult). This was just what I needed to soothe the pain of being a member of Apple's cult. Been using it for a couple weeks now with no issues.

    where other adapters failed, this one worked exactly as advertised

  • Works! And great customer service too

    Posted by John B on Jun 13th 2022

    I've been using this product for over a year and it does exactly what it is supposed to do. It operates an adapter, in my case for my Apple Cinema Display. It also provides passthrough power via USB C to my MacBook Pro. So thankful this is in existence. Customer service has been very appreciative as well after a few issues. Thank you!

  • Works for mini Mac M1 to led cinema display

    Works great! I tried two other adapters from two other companies that promised to work but they did not so I returned those two. This one works as described and the monitor looks terrific!

  • USB-C to Mini Display Adaptor

    Posted by Kenneth Miller on May 31st 2021

    I recently bought a new 27 inch 2019 iMac, primarily to get a webcam for Zoom meetings, and kinda needed a new Mac anyway. However, I had been using my 30 inch Cinema display for so long, now I was really missing it. This totally solved the issue to make it work with the new iMac. I am totally sold! *****************

  • Worked great.

    Worked great for my application which was to power an old Apple LED Cinema Display monitor with the new Apple Mini with Apple Silicon. Thank you!
