Similar to its smaller counterpart, the iPhone 4 and 4S, the new iPad has a beautiful high resolution Retina Display that has resulted in a 4x increase in pixels, at 2048 x 1536 pixels per inch. That’s a million more pixels than an HDTV. Unfortunately, users can’t take full advantage of the retina display until apps are updated to support this high resolution.
To update your app to support the new iPad Retina Display you need to supply specially designed images for the higher resolution retina display. Icons, buttons, spinners, checkboxes and list selectors are affected as well, so extra development time is required to create and add these new images.
