Apple is now offering an updated version of its USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter, which now offers HDMI 2.0 support for 60Hz refresh rates at high resolutions, HDR output, and more.
The new Multiport Adapter allows users to connect a USB-C-enabled Mac or iPad Pro to an HDMI display, while at the same time connecting a standard USB device or USB-C charging cable.
This adapter allows you to mirror your Mac display to your HDMI-enabled TV or display. Supported resolutions include:
3840×2160 at 60Hz on:
iPad Pro 11-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd Generation), MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017 and later), iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017 and later), iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017 and later), and iMac Pro (2018)

Connecting at these resolutions and refresh rates require devices running macOS Mojave 10.14.6 or later or iOS 12.4 or later.
