More details on this appearnce can be checked right after this jump.


Apple’s existing lineup of iPads with Retina display, ranging from the third-generation iPad to iPad Air 2, each have a 9.7-inch screens at 264 pixels per inch (PPI), so it would make sense that the bigger 12.9-inch iPad Pro would have a scaled up resolution with the same pixel density. Specifically with 264 PPI points towards an approximately 12.93″ diagonal screen size of a 2732×2048 resolution. Discovered by a Taiwanese iOS developer Hiraku Wang and shared further iOS 9 beta code that indeed claims that the 12.9″ iPad Pro could have the oft-mentioned resolution and pixel density based on Apple’s @2x high-resolution modifier.

It was in last January, when the reasearch firm DisplaySearch report suggested that Apple had a tablet display with a resolution of 2,732 x 2,048 pixels with 265 PPI under development, and today with these findings it gonna become true.

Find out how an @2x display goes with, this would represent 1,366×1,024 points as shown in the onscreen dimensions for the keyboard.


Further evidence that Apple could be planning to release the much-rumored 12.9-inch “iPad Pro” in the future. Based on A9 tablet, rumored to feature a flexible display with increased pressure sensivity, built-in NFC chip, Force Touch, USB Type-C port and apparently a pressure-sensitive Bluetooth stylus as well.
