How to Connect Multiple Monitors with Apple MacBook Air M1

I have a simple solution to help you connect multiple monitors with Macbook Air M1 or M2.

MacBook Air M1 has no HDMI ports and comes with just two USB-C ports. These two ports are used for charging, connecting external devices, etc. This leads to an issue of connecting two monitors simultaneously. However, using the method below you can easily connect multiple Monitors with Macbook Air M1 or M2.

Requirements for Multiple Displays to Connect with Apple Macbook Air M1

  • Dock Station
  • Display Link

To connect more than one monitor to your MacBook Air M1, you’ll first need to purchase a dock station. This dock station will allow you to connect the monitors to the MacBook via an HDMI cable.

Use the software, DisplayLink. This software allows you to connect up to six monitors to your computer, and it features a variety of features that make it easy to use. One downside is that it can be expensive, and it may not be compatible with all monitors.
