iPad 2 Retina Display confirmed by a picture of wood?

By on

The iPhone 4 got a retina display, then the iPod touch got one and now it’s looking like the next iPad will get one too. But where’s the proof?

Yes, who would’ve guessed that a couple of .png files could in fact prove that an iPad 2 is in the works? Well, MacRumors has reported that in the iBooks 1.2 source files there is a file called Wood Tile@2x.png. This file is the background of your bookshelf in iBooks. The resolution of the new file is 2048×1536 orĀ 2X the resolution of the current iPad.

Also found was the bookmark picture/icon, also made X2.

Why would they include these when there is currently no device that can handle them? And why can’t Apple keep secrets as well as they used to?

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
