Why Should You Optimize Website for Retina Displays

You may have heard of Apple’s Retina display, featured in several of their most recent products such as the iPhone 6, iPhone5 (and 4s), 3rd generation iPad and the latest MacBook Pro laptops.

What is Retina display?

The Retina display is a brand name and a trademark used by Apple for their screens with high resolution and pixel density.

Understand the Retina display:

The difference between a Retina and Regular display is very obvious to check with the screenshot. Sharing our thoughts, If you can able to see the pixels on the screen from a normal viewing distance, it is not a Retina Display but if you can see crazy crisp on the screen then it is a Retina Display. You could take a screenshot on the iPad (hold down the home button and lock button simultaneously), and find out the resolution of the screenshot. It should be 2048 X 1536 pixels for a Retina Display.
