Retina Display is the Apple pride technology since it was introduced for the first time on the iPhone 4, back in 2011. Now, it becomes a standard display for Apple for their products, which allows you to see the individual pixel in certain standard distance and also a great color saturation. It came to the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, MacBook Pro series, and the latest it’s applied on an iMac 27-inch with 5K display. At the moment, the Apple products that have not adopted the retina display are: MacBook Air and iMac 21-inch.
About the last product I mentioned above – iMac 21-inch – Apple is preparing to launch the iMac 21-inch retina display with 4K of resolution according to the reliable source, as quoted by 9to5mac:
“Apple is currently planning to announce new 21.5-inch iMacs with 4K screens next week, according to multiple reliable sources. While the new computers are likely ready to begin showing up in stores as soon as Tuesday, October 13th, Apple will ramp up larger quantities for November, according to the sources, so finding one early on may be a slight challenge.”
Seems that Apple will keep using the last iMac 21-inch design, but with resolution 4096×2304 on its display. It will make the upcoming iMac 21 inch with retina display to have a dedicated GPU card to accommodate the display resolution. Will Apple launch the new iMac 21-inch with 4K display together with the new magic trackpad and new Bluetooth keyboard? We are not sure yet. So, if Apple has updated the iMac with retina display, it means the MacBook Air will be the only Apple product without retina display. If you are planning to buy iMac 21-inch, you better wait and check the Apple Store on October 13.
