OWC Announces Complete Line of Docking Solutions Compatible with New 16-Inch Macbook Pro

Keeping users connected and creating
no matter where they are.

OWC has announced that their complete line of award-winning docking solutions is compatible with the newly-released MacBook Pro 16-inch. While the newest MacBook Pro offers a large Retina display and next-generation graphics, it also offers fewer ports and connectivity options than tech users might need. OWC is here to help with a complete line of docks to keep workflows completely connected, no matter the setting. 


Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock

The newest in the line, and designed for pro creative workflows, the Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock is an on-location and post-production “mission control” featuring 10Gb Ethernet, front-side CFast and SD card readers, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, three USB 3.1 ports, and full support for eSATA devices and drives. On location, the dock is a huge asset, helping manage multiple card uploads efficiently. When back in the office or studio, the Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock has the power and ports needed to manage any workflow. The dock is compact, allowing easy organization of peripherals and keeping workspace free of clutter. Its 10Gb Ethernet connection allows top- speed connectivity, and with 60W of pass-through charging, the new MacBook Pro 16-inch will be ready for mobile use. 


USB-C Travel Dock

In today’s workforce, the office is wherever the work is — that day. OWC’s USB-C Travel Dock keeps vital connections on-hand wherever needed: on-set, on location, at the studio, in a conference room, or lounging at a coffee shop. The Travel Dock transfers up to 100W of pass-through charging from a USB-C power adapter, ensuring users are powered up and ready to deliver a client presentation or download the day’s last shots. With five essential ports and just one cable, users are ready to display, charge, connect, and import while on the move. The USB-C Travel Dock features an HDMI port for easy display connections up to 4K resolution and can be used via bus power when users don’t have access to a power outlet. Or use the MacBook Pro’s USB-C adapter to deliver up to 100W of pass-through power and use the open port on your computer to connect another device. And with its tiny size, it’s the perfect holiday stocking stuffer for every tech user.

With its 14 ports of connectivity thoughtfully placed, the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock delivers convenience while keeping desktops clutter-free. The dock’s front is designed for the easy connection of portable devices, headphones and media cards, while the rear features a multitude of ports for your devices so cables stay out of sight. With its single connection to the MacBook Pro, the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock makes coming and going from a desk a much quicker and easier endeavor. The carefully chosen ports and functionality bring a new world of possibilities to the desktop, but OWC also worked to ensure the Thunderbolt 3 Dock is built to last. A seamless design wrapped in a single piece of aluminum brings a rugged exterior to endure the day-to-day, while maintaining a stylish design that complements any workspace.  


USB-C Dock

The OWC USB-C Dock’s 10 ports of connectivity versatility allows users to link five USB devices, charge two power-demanding USB devices, connect to wired Gigabit Ethernet, download images and videos from the front mounted SD card slot, listen to or capture audio via the 3.5mm audio jack, and connect to a second display, TV, or projector via Mini DisplayPort or HDMI. All that connectivity makes it easy to tap into digital needs and utilize the new MacBook Pro 16-inch to perform double-duty as a desktop workstation at home, in the office, or in the studio. Forget about messing around with dongles and adapters to connect everything, the OWC USB-C Dock makes it easy to connect an entire workflow. And leave that power adapter in the travel bag, as the USB-C Dock charges laptops as well. 


Dock Ejector App

  • Sorry but this doesn’t make sense. “Compatible” is nowadays a synonymous for “can be connected” but not for “it is 100% compatible”.
    Yes, these docks can all be connected to the 16″ Macbook Pro – but NONE of them can support 96W for charging which the 16″ Macbook Pro requires…




    • Hi Guenther! Understanding the power needs of a notebook computer like the MacBook Pro is something that can be a bit confusing. In fact, we are actually planning a future article to fully explain how it works. In the meantime, here is a very general and brief explanation…

      The MacBook Pro doesn’t need all 96W of power from the included PSU to charge. While under average load, it only requires somewhere in the 50-60W range. So, why 96W? This is so power can also be provided to the USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports to drive any connected bus-powered devices. Therefore, if you are using an OWC dock to connect all of your devices to a single TB3/USB-C port (it’s intended purpose), 60W of passthrough power (the least amount of any OWC dock) will be sufficient to keep your computer charging.

      I hope this helps!




  • It would be really nice if there was a dock option that incorporated FireWire 400/800 considering I have multiple external HD using them.




  • I wish one of your TB3 docks had at least one TB2 port. I have all these wonderful OWC TB2 peripherals that I still need to run.
