Some very interesting news on iDownload Blog today, with word from jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich, responsible for the likes of BrowserChooser, FullForce and Display Recorder, who has tweeted the following, “kCAContextEnablePixelDoubling and kCAContextEnablePixelQuadrupling constants in QuartzCore suggest a ‘super-retina’ device is in the works?” Currently, Retina display iPads and iPhones use pixel doubling, so pixel quadrupling would be even better than the current Retina displays. However, as iDownload Blog notes, it’s not clear from the tweet whether or not “super-retina” means a bigger Retina display, or a display with a massively high pixel density of, say, 652ppi. Apparently Twitter users are saying that this could be referring to a number of things, such as support for 4k TV resolution, or for Apple TV apps, among other things. Or is it something else entirely? And how much better would you want, or need, your Retina display to be? Is it a case of, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?
