Apple will be releasing a Retina Display iPad and a TechUnwrapped reader was going through the new Twitter framework in iOS 5 and also found 1,536 x 2,048 images that are exactly double the current resolution of the iPad. The iOS 5 SDK has referenced an increased screen resolution of 1536×2048 and that doesn’t mean that either of these tablets is about to miraculously sprout some extra pixels but does suggest that the iPad 3 will come with a higher resolution display. Retina Display is parts of the iOS SDK, which are new to the iOS codebase, it means an iPad 3 will come out at around the same timeframe as iOS 5………..

 

Apple introduced the Retina display with the iPhone 4 in June 2010. The screen technology’s goal is to operate at such a high resolution that your eyes can’t discern the individual pixels. A Retina screen makes words and images much more clear, ideally reducing eye-strain when compared to a regular resolution display. It stands to reason that the iPad 3‘s Retina display will exist at 2048 by 1536 pixels, versus the current 1024 by 768; that’s twice the resolution packed into the same 9.7 inches on the iPad’s screen. Evidence of the iPad 3 Retina display was uncovered in new code that Apple sent to developers for the upcoming release of iOS 5. In the code, developers noticed that images for Twitter are twice the size needed for use on the current iPad, and that they fit perfectly into an iPad equipped with a retina display. The iPad 3 is rumored to introduce other goodies, beyond the Retina display, including an SD card slot, so you can quickly and easily transfer pictures from your camera to the iPad. And you can bet that the iPad 3 will be lighter and thinner than the iPad 2 and any of Apple’s competition.

 

Frank was kind enough to give us more pics demonstrating his findings. This time it is showing up in Newsstand, which is Apple made surely meaning something of substance.

A TechUnwrapped tipster just mentioned us saying that iOS 5 for iPad contains images double the resolution of the current ones. The current resolution of the iPad and iPad 2 is 1024 x 768. There were many rumors leading up to the iPad 2 release believing it would have a retina display, but many people believed it would be a waste or be too expensive. People saying the iPad 2 wouldn’t have a retina display were combatting statements saying the iPad 2 would in fact have a retina display using the iPad 3. Our tipster said images were two times the resolution coming in at 1,536 x 2,048. Tipster said:

As I was going through the iOS SDK I came across some images in the new Twitter .framework. The resolution appears to be 1,536 x 2,048.

Our tipster, @Frankrockz, went on to say:

Apparently the Twitter.framework is the only framework I found to have these enormous images.

The images prove a lot, but the fact that the huge images can only be found in the Twitter.framework is discouraging to our beliefs that this means an iPad 3 is coming some time around the release of iOS 5, featuring a retina display. Here are the pictures:

From the watermark you will be able to tell the size difference because both watermarks are at the same size, but the resolution on the image below is much larger, 2x the size of the one above.

 

Update : A TechUnwrapped tip that new high-resolution (1536 x 2048) images that were discovered in a Twitter .framework in the iOS 5 SDK. and if the iPad 3 indeed ships with a 2048 x 1536 panel, then it will be double the amount of horizontal and vertical pixels of the iPad and iPad 2, which would put it just behind the 27-inch iMac and 27-inch LED Cinema Display and as the third-highest resolution Apple device.

  • 27-inch LED Cinema Display (2560 x 1440)
  • 27-inch iMac (2560 x 1440)
  • iPad 3 (est. 2048 x 1536)
  • 24-inch iMac (1920 by 1080)
  • 17-inch MacBook Pro (1920 x 1200)
  • 15-inch MacBook Pro, high-res (1680 x 1050)
