For months now we have been hearing rumors of the new iPad’s, iPad 3 or iPad 2S, high resolution screen, but it seems now that MacRumors have come across some solid proof.What we actually mean by ‘come across’ is that MacRumors actually just went an ordered an iPad 3 display module online to see if it was in fact the real deal.
They took the purported iPad 3 display under a microscope and compared the unit to the module found on the iPad 2. As you can see from the picture above, the iPad 3 actually has 4 pixels for every one iPad 2 pixel!
The new iPad 3 screen will have a resolution of 2048 x 1536, which will actually make it a Retina Retina display, but we imagine Apple will name it Retina HD or something similar.
It won’t just be the iPad 3 which will be getting a resolution boost this year as it is also thought that the Macbook Pro range of laptops will get Retina displays also, and that Apple’s latest OS, Mountain Lion will take advantage of the extra pixels.
