Retina Display

Retina Display

The LCD screen display technology from Apple, introduced with the iPhone 4 in 2010. Retina Displays have high pixel densities (see table below), and the combination of density and in-plane switching (IPS) produces a quality display. Apple claims it is impossible to perceive the individual pixels on a Retina Display screen. See IPS panel.
