I have a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) running OS X El Capitan version 10.11.4. I am attempting to use an external display with my Dell U2715Q (has 4k capabilities). I purchased an AmazonBasics miniDisplayPort to HDMI adapter and I am getting 1920x 1080 as my max resolution.

My question is: how can I obtain the full max resolution with my mac and monitor set up?

According to the official website I should be able to reach 2560 x 1600:

Dual display and video mirroring: Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on an external display, both at millions of colors

  • Can you please change your title to "How to reach full resolution on external monitor?" As the current title indicates you want your built in monitor to display at full resolution. – At0mic May 11 '16 at 3:52

HDMI is limited to 1920x1080. You will need to connect the monitor with a mini DP to DP cable.
