Apple Thunderbolt 3 USB-C to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter

Connect Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 devices to any Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port

Product Description

The Apple Thunderbolt 3 USB-C to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter lets you connect Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 devices to any Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port.

As a bidirectional adapter, it can also connect new Thunderbolt 3 devices to a Mac with a Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 port and macOS Sierra.

In addition, it can be used to connect Thunderbolt-enabled displays — such as the Apple Thunderbolt Display and LG Thunderbolt 2 displays — to any of the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports on your MacBook Pro. However, using this adapter with an Apple Thunderbolt Display requires a power source, because the display does not provide power through the adapter.

Note: This adapter does not support DisplayPort displays like the Apple LED Cinema Display or third-party DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort displays. For more information, visit the Apple Support page for the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter.

Works great

By Damien W on May 2, 2021

This adapter is TOPS. It goes from one kind of plug to the other kind of plug with the mojo and vibe of any vintage Class A tube adapter. Incredible! (Seriously though, it's fine. It's the Apple one so it works like it's supposed to.)

Received on time, great service

Works exactly as you’d like but you better learn your DAW to maximize this unit’s full potential.

Best service ever...it’s a cable!!

By Gonzalo C on March 8, 2020

Nothing much! It works. Apple's new strategy of being an accessories seller. Of course, their accessories have better quality than their original products.

Does what it says it does! Volume switch takes a second to get used to if your familiar with the solver design apolllo but great little unit.

By Ido V on January 14, 2020

Works with my PC / Windows 10 just perfect! I use this with my Apollo x8 which is Thunderbolt 3, and my PC is only Thunderbolt 2. Everything is working flawless with this setup.

By Mike D on October 7, 2019

I use this on a dell inspiron 7577 laptop with thunderbolt 3. My interface is a motu 828es with thunderbolt 2 and with this adapter i can use the thunderbolt connection. i was a little weary of using an apple product with windows but this works just fine. no issues as of yet, was plug and play. i wish it came in black or a dark color as its the only thing white in my studio and sticks out like a sore thumb.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
James P.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
Robby T.
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
Jake D.
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Rob M.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
