DDM, April 21st release date for macOS X?

Hi there,

According to, Dell monitor, Apple FAQ, the DDM for macOS X should be released? I can't seem to find it?

"A macOS version of the DDM (Dell Display Manager) software should be released by April 21, 2021"

Can someone provide an update? Or link to download?

Thanks!

They really need to get their mac software in gear. Many people like myself buy these monitors with built in hubs to use a Windows desktop and a MacBook. Until they have software, the hot key combo switching only works when Windows > Mac. Going backwards from Mac > Windows need to use the controls on the monitor itself.

The key word is that sentence is "should". Notice I did not say, "will". Like you, all we can do is periodically check the applicable monitor driver page.

Hi Chris,

Do you have a new release date? I bought one by mistake and waiting for this software to get my second 43” monitor.

Re: DDM, April 21st release date for macOS X?

sending my Dell U4021QW back to Dell ...very disappointed . I watched all the on line reviews , productivity was one the main reasons for buying this and at $2000 I'd expect access to all the functionality . I cannot find one review that warns Mac users that DDM is not available and I don't see why I should have to wait.  Perhaps I'm just ignorant , but I feel a little conned. 

it's going to be fun re packaging the screen (not).

What I am doing is periodically checking the 2021 released models Drivers & Downloads pages to see if the new macOS version has been released.

Like you, I have not heard anything. The last thing they said was keep checking the driver pages.

Hi.

Just bought the Dell U4320Q for my Macbook Pro & HP Elitebook. DDM works very nice in Windows.

Can you please check up on progress on DDM for Mac?

 

I have found these alternatives, so far - but would be nice with a Dell Display Manager for Mac:

Rectangle (free) - https://rectangleapp.com/

Moom (10 bucks) - https://manytricks.com/moom/

Magnet (8 bucks) - https://magnet.crowdcafe.com/
