iOS 5 Beta Suggests That The Next iPad Will Include A Retina Display

iOS 5 Beta Suggests That The Next iPad Will Include A Retina Display

Deep inside the iOS 5 SDK, a clue was discovered about the next iPad. A recent report indicates that many apps secretly contain iPad graphics at a resolution of 2048 x 1536 – that’s exactly twice the iPad’s current resolution, and gives good reason to think that the next iPad will go retina.

Also according to the report is the fact that these images all include a “”2X” marker within the file name. What’s particularly interesting about this is that these are some of the very same trends of discovery that lead up to the iPhone 4 getting a retina display. The new enhanced graphics have also been discovered in the Twitter frameworks of the iOS 5 SDK, as well as the iOS 5 Newsstand application.

It makes sense that an upcoming iPad would be getting a retina display – now that the iPhone 4 has retina graphics, many people consider the iPad’s display to just not display as good of an image. In addition, with the increased emphasis on reading books and magazines on the iPad, a retina display would go far in helping to improve that experience.

We feel that this information is not coincidental, and reflects a very real possibility of a retina display powered next-gen iPad. What are your thoughts?

    Fine apple, you may launch iPad 3 soon enough, but what will the existing iPad owners do? Keep fuming and cry foul play! Cmon guys, you should upgrade your portfolio but not so frequently as to let your already loyal customers feel betrayed!

      Since when was it ‘foul play’ to upgrade your products? Geez, no pleasing some people. Be happy with what you have! If not, then either buy the new one or stop whining.

    2. You have a choice mate. Buy it or don’t buy it. Nobody is forcing you to purchase anything.

    I just bought my iPad 2 and I noticed that the zoomed screen was terribley bad
    And if they released iPad 3 what I’m going to do with my iPad 2?

      what do you mean what to do with your iPad 2? You keep using it for the tool it is. It doesn’t become obsolete the second they release an iPad 3.
