Default Does DL work on macOS BigSur 11.2 Update


I just got this update notification on my MacBook Air 13 M1 2020 and quite frankly am too afraid to install it not knowing if DL will work or will leave me with not working external monitors waiting weeks or months for a fix? Has anyone already installed it on M1 and can confirm?

Hello davvs,

Thank you for asking. Yes, no change of functionality on DisplayLink Manager 1.2 and macOS 11.2 with Apple M1 machines.

Similar to what took place on Windows side in 2016, deep changes were made to allow better stability across versions. That's where DisplayLink Manager comes from.

Kind regards,
