    4K monitor at 1440p scaling performance

    Hi! While researching about 4K monitors for my MacBook Air 2020 I found out that many mac users experience performance issues when applying scaling. More precisely when scaling not to the native 4K resolution or 1080p but between the "more space" and "larger text". Somewhere in the middle there...

    Early 2013 MBP and a 144Hz monitor?

    Hello everyone. Several months ago I built a gaming PC and connected it to an Acer XF270HUA monitor. It's stunning: 1440p, 144Hz, 4ms, IPS, FreeSync, thin bezels. I like it. I like it so much that I wanna connect my MacBook Pro to it when I'm not gaming and simply use it as my main monitor...

    How to scale MacOS to any size you like

    Just in case people don't know how to do this... I was trying to find a way to enlarge MacOS on my external 1440p monitor, as all the UI text was a little too small to read comfortably. But do so in a way that didn't result in the blurring that happens when you reduce the monitor resolution. I...

    What happened to 1440p support in YouTube app?

    I am 99% sure it was possible to view 4K Ultra HD videos in 1440p on an iPad with the official YouTube app, wasn’t it? No more - everything is capped at 1080p! It’s same with Safari on Mac, I think it supported 1440p for a while too, but not anymore. Chrome works. Apparently it’s because some...

    21.5" iMac late 2012 with 1440p external monitor

    Hi! Would 21.5 2012 iMac work ok with 1440p monitor? It would be primarily used for work as a second monitor but from time to time for gaming (powered by a PC). It's important that text on 1440p monitor looks same / similar to the main display (nor large nor smaller) as that could be too...

    HiDPI scaling on Dell U2515H - MacOS Sierra

    Hello everyone, I use a macbook pro (early 2013) in clamshell mode connected to a Dell U2515H (via displayport). This is a 1440p monitor. As discussed in threads before, it's very hard (/impossible?) to get 720p HiDPI working on MacOS Sierra. Does anyone know if there is a new fix or method to...

    iPhone 7 Display Resolution

    Hello everyone. So we pretty much all know that the iPhone 7 is going to continue with an LCD display for another year. I really don't care for the dual camera, thinness, removal of the headphone jack or stereo speakers. My only concern is if they'll bump the display resolution up from 1080p...

    All iPads Is there a 1440p option on the YouTube app for iPad?

    So I've never had an iPad before and I'm wondering if there is an option for 1440p on the YouTube app. I have an iPhone 6s right now and the screen just isn't cutting it for movies/YouTube videos. Any iPad is ok, but I prefer an iPad mini. Would really appreciate if someone knows or would look...

    Can I see 2K (1440p) on my iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6s Plus?

    Now I can see that when I see a video on YouTube on the defenitions specs I can select 1440p, but Apple never announce that you can see 2K (1440p) on your iPad Air 2 or iPhone 6s Plus, so, can I really see 1440p on this devices?
