The display resolution on a Mac indicates the amount of information that can be displayed on the screen, as well as the sharpness of the image. It is expressed in pixels (pixels) and represented as width x height. For example, a screen has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 which means the width of the screen is 1920 pixels and its height is 1080 pixels.
Each monitor can display images at many different resolutions, of which the highest resolution (native resolution) will bring out the best and sharpest images. That’s why it’s important to know your monitor’s highest resolution if you want to get the most out of it, especially when playing games or running graphics applications.
Here’s a detailed guide on how to determine the highest display resolution on a Mac.
Step 1: Click on the missing apple icon in the top left corner of the screen, and select About This Mac.
Step 2: Select Displays tab from the pop-up window.
Step 3: Here, you will see information of the built-in displays on your Mac, as well as external monitors you have connected to the device (if any).
Now that you know how to determine the highest display resolution on your Mac, you can use it to set up games, apps, or find a suitable desktop wallpaper, and more.
