OSX (10.9, 10.10) screen resolutions need be greater than 1024x768

This is blocking many of our tests since we can't test against OSX 10.9, 10.10, and 10.11 since these features need to be greater than 1024 x 768 so the responsive web design settings kick in. This should be a standard for sauce labs to support apple retina resolutions. The current resolution 1024 × 768 isn't acceptable for our testing. OSX platforms 10.9, 10.10, 10.11 need to support 1920x1200 or great screen resolution. For any new OSX platforms it should be requirement to build mirroring screen resolution.

    1024x768 is less than 7% of web users too according to http://www.hobo-web.co.uk/best-screen-size/

    Is there any update or reason why this hasn't been implemented for OSX 10.11 (El Capitan)? It's even limited to 1024x768: https://wiki.saucelabs.com/display/DOCS/Platform+Configurator#/

    It's worth noting that your competitor supports a standard set of screen resolutions across all OSX versions: https://www.browserstack.com/question/551

    Also, this idea is incorrectly categorized as "shipped", as it does not apply to OSX 10.11

    Agree - this should not be marked as shipped.

    I've edited this idea to reflect what was shipped and created a new idea specifically for Mac10.11 resolutions
