Tech specs: Ports: USB Type-C (1); USB Type-A (1) | Display: HDMI (1), 3840 x 2160

While there’s not really an Apple-branded docking station for use with your MacBook, Apple does offer its USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter. Although it pales in comparison to the options offered by the model above (and several below), it is far less expensive, and takes care of all of the basic necessities. You could also expand it further, in a pinch, by using a compatible USB-A hub. 

Of course, if you’re using this with a MacBook Air, you’ll probably be limited to the one extra USB-C port it’s not already taking up. But, if you’re connecting to a more port-heavy MacBook Pro, you could potentially run two external monitors (one via the MacBook’s built-in HDMI port and one via the dongles), or more if any of those monitors support Thunderbolt-based input. 

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, being a modern Mac user means coming to terms with “Dongle Life,” and this is actually one of the most convenient and reliable ways to live your best Dongle Life.
