Retina Display for iPad confirmed

Last week, MacRumors reported that they were able to get a 9.7 inch display that was claimed to be for the iPad 3, confirming through microscopic analysis that the display offers twice the linear resolution and 4 times the total number of pixels as the iPad 2.

We’ve since shared the display with our friends at iFixit to see if they could power the screen and otherwise take a closer look at it. Unfortunately, with the different connector on the new display, iFixit was unable to directly hook the display up to the guts of an iPad 2. Meanwhile, efforts to map the pins of the two displays in an attempt to jury-rig the iPad 3 display were believed to be too substantial to undertake with the limited time and no guarantees of success. iFixit was, however, able to confirm our findings of an ultra-high resolution display that quadruples the number of pixels over the previous-generation iPads.

In this new video overview of the iPad 3 display, iFixit confirms the higher (2048×1536) resolution, the modified connector, and tweaked retaining clips as compared to the iPad 2 display.

Apple is expected to announce their next iPad on March 7th and is expected to sport a Retina Display, an A5X or A6 processor and a thicker design to compensate for the new display and battery.
