    Does the current iPad mini support the new retina display?

    Hi! Welcome to iPF!

    The current iPad mini has the same resolution as iPad 2. No retina display.

    Well, if you want even more information on iPad specs, check the Apple Comparison Chart - the r-iPad has the new A6X chip (vs. the older A5 on the mini), which offers 4x the pixel density of the iPad2 & iPad Mini (of course, the pixels/inch is slightly higher on the latter due to the smaller screen) - the retina display on my new MacBook Pro is amazingly sharp - :)

    For the record ipad mini has higher ppi density than the ipad 2, so expect the display quality on the ipad mini to be better while having less real estate.
