Retina Ready Display

Retina Display is the registered trademark used by Apple for a HiDPI display technology which they started using in their latest devices such as ipad, iphone, and macbook pro.WordPress had been the successful platform for web development for last few years. This is because of the powerful content management system and the look provided by WordPress. People always say the WordPress websites look much better when compared to the normal HTML websites. This is because of the display features provided by various WordPress themes.

Nowadays Retina ready displays are demanded by the users. The websites are viewed in different devices such as mobiles, tablets, laptops etc. The screen size will be different in look all the devices. Apart from the responsiveness of the websites, they should also cool for the eyes, here comes the use of retina ready display. Most of the WordPress themes available today provide retina ready display. And this is much needed in the future growth of the online world. The images that are not optimized for high resolution screen will look less than stellar. This technology basically displays more dots per inch than older devices ( around 300 DPI).

If you want a bitmap image that is 100px by 100px to look sharp on a Retina display, you’ll need to provide extra pixels for the Retina display to work with. This is done by making the bitmap image twice as big to begin with. When an Apple product has a Retina Display, each user interface widget is doubled in width and height to compensate for the smaller pixels. Apple calls this mode HiDPI mode.
