Is Display Pilot supported on Apple M1?


BenQ DesignVue PD series designer monitors currently support the Apple M1-based devices natively when using our Display Pilot software with version or later. However, there are two limitations in the scenarios listed below: 


1. Mac Mini, Macbook M1 Pro & Macbook M1 Max cannot sync with our PD series monitors when using the HDMI port. Thus, we recommend connecting the monitor via the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) cable or USB-C to DisplayPort cable when using Display Pilot as part of your workflow.


2. Currently Macbook M1 Pro & Macbook M1 Max can’t recognize two individual monitors with the same model name, as it will lead to the mismatch error on the Display Pilot. While we’re working on a possible solution, we suggest you use the monitor OSD menu or the Hotkey Puck to control each monitor as a workaround, and not use the Display Pilot when connecting two monitors with the same model name. We will keep our customers informed once a solution becomes available
