Code found in iOS 9 beta 1 has almost verified not only the presence of Apple’s upcoming 12.9-inch iPad, however likewise the specific resolution that the behemoth of a tablet will be boasting.

Ever considering that Apple seeded the very first beta of iOS 9 to designers, hackers and tinkerers are at it searching for features and elements not gone over by Apple. And now thanks to a recent discovery made by designer Hiraku Wang (Twitter) from Taiwan, we now know that the iPad Pro will certainly sport a resolution of 2732×× 2048 pixels based upon Apple’s “@ 2x high-resolution modifier.”

Wang made this discovery digging into the code of the expected iPad Pro-optimized keyboard discovered in iOS 9 just a day back. The display resolution may seem a bit odd to non-Apple customers at first, however this pixel plan gives the machine a familiar 264 pixels-per-inch density, which is constant with the Cupertino giant’s lineup of 9.7-inch iPads with Retina display screens.

Previously, another report pointed us in the very same direction, keeping in mind that the next-gen iPad will have a pixel density of 264ppi. Initial reports had claimed that the tablet might sport a 2K display screen, or if Apple really had a style for the dramatics, it could press that approximately 4K. Nevertheless, viewers continued to be skeptic of whether Apple would desire to drop the 4:3 screen ratio in the iPad which has proven to be extremely successful until now. The upsold reports relating to the screen were helped by the probability of Apple presenting a brand-new and much powerful A9 CPU into the formula for its latest and greatest iPad, but reality of the matter is, all is hush on the hardware front also in the meantime.


Force Touch is likely to make the final cut for iPad Pro, in addition to the USB-C port, which Apple appears to have actually taken a preference to. In the meantime though, the screen resolution found thanks in part to iOS 9 is potentially the only strong footed proof we have today of exactly what the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will certainly resemble when it’s launched.
