The display utilizes an extremely high 2048x1536 pixel resolution, which means that it quadruples the pixel count of the iPad 2. Apple calls it a Retina display and it will make objects on the iPad 3 appear extremely detailed. Because the resolution is twice in the vertical and horizontal axis it also means that the iOS looks exactly the same and app icons have the same size – they screen is just much more detailed.

The size and resolution equals 264 ppi (pixels per inch), which is the highest on any tablet today. If you are counting pixels, it has approximately 1 million more pixels than you Full HD flat panel TV. Apple defines it as "Retina" because pixel density exceeds the eye's ability to distinguish details, which ensures "perfect sharpness" (based on a viewing distance of 15 inches / 38 centimeters).

Apple still uses the so-called IPS panel, which is often associated with great color reproduction (Apple boasts improved color saturation) and wide viewing angles. IPS is a LCD panel technology and Apple has used a power-efficient edge LED backlight system behind the screen.
