Server logs reveal iPads with iOS 6, retina displays in Cupertino
Is iOS 6 already on a few trusted iPads locked deep away somewhere within the Cupertino fort? If the information found in some recent server logs is any indication, then it may very well be possible.

ARS Technica recently took at look at its monthly browser logs and found some interesting device information. First of all, they found 346 visits from iPads with a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536, which coincides with the rumored retina display resolution and other reports of analytical data showing a device named “iPad HD” with that resolution.

Additionally, there were iPad user agents from Apple’s corporate IP block that were running iOS 5.0.1, iOS 5.1, and, most interestingly, iOS 6. The iOS 6 devices were also running a newer build of WebKit.

It is pretty doubtful that Apple’s March event will include an iOS 6 announcement, especially considering that iOS 5.1 hasn’t been released to the public yet. It would make sense, though, that iOS 6 would be in its infancy and may be planned for the fall when the next generation of iPhone is rumored to be announced.

I see these obsolete remarks frequently. Why do you call it obsolete?

Every year there is a new OS update for both IOS and Android, sometimes major, sometimes minor. Good to see they are still moving forward with ideas and features on both ends. IOS 6 and Android OS 5 :)

lol, Will Apple stop calling their screens Retina? It's just a regular screen with high ppi, nothing special or unique. Hell, the HTC Rezound has a screen with higher ppi, you don't see them running around calling it "Super Retina". Apple is just coming up fancy names for regular things to make them sound good...They can call a blender iSuperMixer and people will still think it's revolutionary...

what makes them unique is the there PPI there really were not many phones out there with a screen with that kind of PPI when retina was introduced

its just a moniker… not something to get offended about… retina is pretty much known to be above the ppi that the human eye can detect from a logical distance.. which the iphone/rezound/other screens achieve… i mean why not get offended about nokia clearblack? super amoled plus? nova?

Because Super Amoled is real "different and unique" tech, it replaces the regular 2 subpixels with 3 subpixels. Clearblack is regular Amoled with a filter on top, also unique and different. And Nova is less power hungry.

Retina is just a clearer screen because of high ppi, which any other company can easily make (ThinkPad, etc) with no new or different technology, why does it get it's own name?

yup, definitely right on that one. apple's just dumb to make up something which can be done by everyone else.

actually nobody had a retina display at the time so technically it was a new tech… they squeezed 4 pixels into every 1 pixel… if other people wanted to create even more names then they could… they are all just monikers
