AKiTiO Thunderbolt 3 Products

On October 27, Apple announced a new line of MacBook Pro laptops, all featuring the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 interface. In this article, we would like to answer the question everybody is asking.

Are the current Thunderbolt 3 products from Akitio compatible with the new MacBook Pro (late 2016)?

Preliminary testing of our Thunderbolt™ 3 products with the new 2016 13” MacBook Pro are as follows:

These devices are not compatible with macOS. An “Unsupported” message occurs. We will make the necessary changes and release new devices that are compatible with both Windows and macOS but the current devices cannot be “upgraded” and are therefore compatible with Windows only.
