Thunderbolt 4 - what can you connect?

You connect any device that is Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 or simply bears the Thunderbolt logo (pictured) to your Thunderbolt 4 port on your computer, iPad or laptop. This can include Thunderbolt hubs or docking stations, monitors and displays, data storage and video capture.

For HomeKit Australia, it is important that you can connect 40Gbps external Thunderbolt SSD drives like our 2TB Thunderbolt SSD drive, to your iPad, laptop or computer. If you need to achieve maximum speed from an external data storage device, Thunderbolt 4 is the answer.

In the pro studio or gaming environments, a Thunderbolt 4 out port will connect to either one or two 4K 60Hz display monitors. It will also drive compatible 8K monitors. Typically this is done via the appropriate adapter although we are now seeing Thunderbolt high-end monitors coming to market.

The bonus is that Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 (which you should for most times consider as the same), is fully backwardly compatible with USB-C. So your existing USB-C devices like mice, trackpads, data storage, headsets, gaming devices, keyboards and the like.

Thunderbolt just doesn't fast transfer data or video. A second bonus is that you can connect your iPhone, iPad, Android equipped phone, recent MacBooks, USB4 or Thunderbolt laptops to provide power and charge these devices quickly from any Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4 or USB4 port.

In addition, Thunderbolt allows for connection to fast 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks. You can use an appropriate adapter or simply attach a Thunderbolt cable and connect two computers directly. You can set up a new computer faster than any other method or simply transfer large chunks of data .... FAST.
