According to various rumors and mainly based on the statements of Richard Shim (DisplaySearch), the leading provider of display and LG, Samsung and Sharp would started production of Retinal Display for iPad3 with twice the resolution of 2048 × 1536 pixels. The screen will appear the same size as the iPad, 10-inch LCD (not AMOLED) with aspect ratio of 4:3.
Apple could start the commercialization of iPad 3 new generation in the first quarter of , 2012.
We usually advise designers to create graphics for applications with very high resolution so its can, in future, be easily adapted to all IOS devices. For example, if the design of an icon or a splash page, what I continue to report to the graphics is that developers should never from low-resolution icons, which may be grainy on devices with higher resolution.
Experience teaches us about Apple aims high-quality graphics and is therefore expected that in future models screens are installed at more high density of pixels (dpi). But often the graphics and agencies prefer not to hand over files with these features in order to minimize the workload, a practice that will never be in line with the philosophy of i3Factory whose guidelines on the development are always trying to predict the next market moves.
As we know the images used for applications for the Apple devices are distinguished by a convention on the same file names of images, which provides that all images intended for Retinal Display your name must end with the characters @2x.
This agreement indicates just an image file to double the resolution, which in the case dell’iPhone4 is 960 x 640 pixels, while in the case of the iPad3 will be 2048 x 1536 pixels.
We note, for example, the file “image.png” iPad will have a canvas in any size 1024 x 768 pixels while the same file for retina display “email@example.com”, for iPad 3 will have a canvas of resolution 2048 x 1536 pixels.
Taking up an article of melabog they discover that among the files of the new app iBooks 2 (Presented during the Apple event on January 19, 2012) have been found some graphics designed for a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, as in the previous version of iBooks .
One of the reasons why some were already long on the production of a device with iPad Retinal Display it was the discovery of these high-resolution images already in the first version of iBooks, and also the same as Apple recommends developers to work with images high resolution, we can be sure that the following images unearthed by melabog in iBooks 2 as a confirmation of the presence of Retinal Display for iPad-3.
