Retina must be supported by the app for it to be displayed in Retina. If the app does not support Retina then the app will not be displayed in Retina. You may be able to force Retina for an app with Retinizer: Retinizer is a small app I wrote that allows apps that aren’t retina ready and are displayed pixelated at 1x to display their UI widgets at ...

1080p - The Resolution is 1920x1080 pixels, sent at 60 complete frames per second. --> Hold alt key before pressing Scaled to see all resolution supported. If you use the "Underscan slider" it will allow you to get higher resolution at the cost of screen refresh rate. The reason we use 50/60 Hz refresh rate is the human eye can not see screen refresh ...

It requires a kext swap to an older graphics driver. They're probably trying to phase out older mac mini models with the release of the new ones. Duplicate: Lost ability to choose 3440x1440 resolution after Yosemite upgrade

Here is the official link that says that you can connect a 4k monitor but at 30HZ, and on some setups (e.g. macbook pro retina late 2013) at 60HZ http://support.apple.com/kb/ht6008 Also, the support article on thunderbolt FAQ is relevant to what monitors can be driven at high resolutions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3382#11

No, what you're asking for doesn't even make sense. If you want the display to be mirrored, then what's on the external display has to be exactly the same as what's on the internal display. What you need is a new external display with a larger physical screen size.

Above all, text must be legible. If users can’t read the words in your app, it doesn’t matter how beautiful the typography is. When you adopt Dynamic Type in your app, you get: Automatic adjustments to letter spacing and line height for every font size The ability to specify different text styles for semantically distinct blocks of text, such as Body, ...

Displays under System Preferences is it from the OS X built-in UI side. There are third-party utilities like Display Menu that offers additional resolutions. There is also cscreen if you want to do it in Terminal or incorporate it in a script.

actually it works on external displays such as TVs, but the list in System Preferences is limited. you can try two things: either hold "alt" when clicking "Scaled" button, or install one of the menu utilities such as http://www.resolutiontab.com/ the first one didn't work for me as it kept only showing "tv friendly" resolutions (720p, 1080p and 1080i). ...

get a Mini DisplayPort / Thunderbolt to DisplayPort Cable $17.99 or less, thats what i did works fine, although photoshop still displays non retina so have to scale to 50% which is a pain.

1440x900 is the native resolution for 15'' non Macbook Pros, and the given (best/default) resolution for 15'' rMBP with the pixel doubling effect taken into account, as it is. The analytics don't distinguish between the two, so the most you can infer from the data is that the most common model is a 15'' Macbook Pro.

Over HDMI that machine can only do 1920x1200. Need Thunderbolt or MiniDP->DP or DVI to get 2560x1440 according to EveryMac & those screens have more input options than you could ever need; I'd go miniDP to miniDP [or DP] as simplest solution. That's what I use here on 2 of the same monitors - but I also double up with DVI-DVI on one screen, to toggle ...

Yes, I can confirm to you they are exact the same. Photo's are exact the same format and file-size. You can also verify this yourself by connecting your iPhone to your PC using the USB cable and get one picture from it. Check the size, resolution and format. Now open your Photostream and do exact the same.

To see all graphics supported modes use the alt key before clicking on Scaled in display preferences. To see it in 19:9 use a Thunderbolt cable to a TV. (assuming you have those) If you have a Mac like I do (MBA 2012) then using the Thunderbolt you can get up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on your HDTV. Intel HD Graphics 4000 Dual display and video mirroring: ...

Today I made this happen on my Mac Book Pro 15" Retina Late 2013 model by simply using a HDMI cable. Apparently recent version of HDMI supports 2560x1440 resolution... You then have to configure you monitor to Not do any magic picture improvements and set Sharpness to 0 to avoid shadows and unclear text.

The only way to solve this is to get a TV with 1920x1080 resolution. What you are seeing in the top picture is the your Mac outputting to the native resolution of the TV - which is a resolution usually reserved for screens 11-13" in size. What you are seeing in the image below is what happens when you show a 1920x1080 image scaled on a TV with only ...

From Everymac - The standard configuration of this model has an LED-backlit 15.4" widescreen TFT active-matrix "glossy" display (1440x900 native resolution), but it also was available via custom configuration with a "high-resolution glossy" 1680x1050 display and a "high-resolution antiglare" 1680x1050 display for an additional US$100 and US$150, ...

I managed to get full 3840×2160 @30Hz using mini-displayport cable and an app called SwitchResX. Here are my custom settings, you need to reboot the machine to apply them: As a word of warning, this does make things eye-bleedingly small. (Pretty cool though - full-size) Personally, I found the ‘scaled’ resolution of 1920×1200 to be the best for me ...

Ricardo is correct in his answer of @3x, but I'll take a shot at answering your question as well. If you're working from Retina resolution assets already, the upscale factor would be an additional 1.5x for the iPhone 6 Plus. For example, your 88px by 88px Retina icon would have to be up-scaled to a resolution one and a half times that amount for the iPhone ...

Use the resolution given in the name of the image. For @2x images, double the resolution in both directions. PPI does not matter—Apple uses 72 PPI. Do not use any transparency or interlacing. For example: icon_512x512@2x.png is a 1024x1024 image.

The problem shows after using an external monitor with a different resolution. For example a tv. Befor disconnecting the monitor set up the parameters foryour screen and then take the HDMI cable out.

As an alternative, assuming you know the risks and have a backup, there are some utilities on Cydia which can change fonts that various iOS apps use. However, you have to jailbreak your device to use them. Just bringing this up as an alternative.

The answer is Yes and No, depending on the app developers. I purchased iPhone 6 Plus for the hope that I can see bigger text. But apparently, not every user or developer thinks the same. On my iPhone 6 Plus, I turned on the "Zoom" mode in "Display & Brightness" for my aging eyesight. What it does is to render the text bigger. It works very well in ...
