    What Is Retina Display and Why Is It Good

    Retina Display is created by Apple, it stands for a high resolution screen with high enough ppi which human’s eyes see little pixelation. Apple took Retina Display on iPhone 4/4S/5, iPod touch 3rd/4th/5th generation, iPad 3rd/4th generation, and Macbook Pro with Retina Display 13” and 15”. The PPI of the iPhone, iPod and iPad is above 300 pixels and the Macbook Pro goes with the PPI above 200 pixels, so that in a typical distance, human eye is unable to notice the pixelation. Currently, the Retina screens of iPad come from Samsung, and the Macbook, iPhone and iPod touches’ displays come from LG and Samsung.

    Retina Display makes our eyes comfortable when watching. The displays a few years ago were not Retina Displays at all. You may still remember how the picture looked like when we watching a video or reading a book on our computer. Our eyes got tired and hurt because we couldn’t help to notice the pixelation in the screen here and there. But with the high PPI Retina Display, we will get rid of the eye strain problem. According to Gary Heiting, OD and associate editor of AllAboutVision.com, said, “A key factor in something that’s called computer vision syndrome, or just eye strain from computer use, is screen resolution.” And with high-PPI Retina Display, he said, “people are going to notice less pixelation, especially in a small typeface. It’s not an enjoyment issue or aesthetic issue, but it’s definitely a visual comfort issue, over time.” So Retina Display is going to reduce the eye strain problem when people use computers, tablets and smartphones more and more often.

    Non-Retina Display Screen Vs. Retina Display Screen

    Retina Display will also encourage people reading more on tablets. iPad 4 owns a high resolution of 2048*1536 and the PPI is 264, it provides a good visual experience. As people now rarely take paper-made books along with them, an iPad is what they need for reading. High PPI with less pixelation will make the letters on the e-book clear so that readers are able to read the e-books with comfort. That will be nice for seniors who don’t play games or watch TV series a lot. For the youth, iPad is more than a book library, it is multi-functional and can be used both for work and daily life. So a high-PPI Retina Display will protect their eyes from becoming shortsighted.

    Retina Display will also make the coming iOS 7 more terrific in visual experience. As is known, the flat design has been used in the iOS 7 and make this operating system has a simpler appearance than before. The iOS 7 on a Retina Display will make your eyes in a very comfortable condition and even for a long-time use, your eyes won’t get tired. You may want to update your iOS 6 to 7 on your iPad, it’s a good idea, the 9.7-inch screen with simplified design and high-PPI Retina Display will reduce your eyes’ work when you are tapping the screen. Of course, you would love to transfer movies to iPad for an enjoyment, and watching a 1080p movie on the Retina Display is absolutely fantastic.

    Retina Display has been used for various Apple devices, but not on iPad mini. Actually, a 9.7-inch iPad is a little bigger than what people need for daily uses. So if the iPad mini with Retina Display will be released in the autumn, Apple is likely to attract more attention.
