iOS 9 code reveals that the rumored Apple iPad Pro could come with a 2732 x 2048 display

Earlier today, we told you that the iOS 9 keyboard now comes with a new layout, one that will apparently work only on the upcoming iPad Pro / Plus, the oversized Apple iPad version that is said to be under development since late 2013. As it turns out, a new discovery made by a Chinese developer in the iOS 9 source code reveals that the tablet could come with a display that runs a resolution of 2732 by 2048 pixels.

Although the iOS 9 source code actually references a display with a resolution of 1366 by 1024 pixels, developer Hiraku Wang claims that, due to Apple's display scaling system, there's a very good chance for the iPad Pro to come with a 2732-by-2048 display. If this turns out to be accurate, and the iPad Pro actually comes with a 12.9-inch display as often rumored in the past, the iPad Pro display will feature a PPI of 267, which is exactly on par with the PPI of the iPad Air 2. This consistency in PPI densities would mean that apps designed for the iPad Air could scale up seamlessly on the larger screen of the iPad Pro.

Last year, rumors argued that Apple had a tough time figuring out whether the market is ready for a larger iPad. Ever since Apple unveiled the iPad-only split-screen multitasking feature in iOS 9, however, rumors regarding a potential larger iPad Pro started gaining inertia once again. At the rate that new evidence is piling up, chances are that the iPad Pro will be announced this year, although we will not know for sure until Apple actually unveils the device.

When will Android start learning from Apple when it comes to tablets? I hate Apple.

One of the things that's beyond me. Apple has had an advantage in the tablet industry for way too long. Android manufacturers should step their tablet game up.

One thing that keeps Android tabs to shame are poorly optimized apps and an overgrown Lollipop. Lollipop is a big step down from Android in the tablet space.

I agree with you Tedkurd. All Android Tablet manufacturers need to stick to a few general sizes, making it easier to scale the apps up and down to fit the screen(s). This should have been implemented long ago. I don't care if the tablet is 9.7 inch or 10.1, it just has to be able to run what I want, just like on my phone(s). They need to quite making tablets randomly sized. Take one from Apples simple method, make standard sizes, and stick with them. People will buy it. Phones should be 3 sizes to meet demand for every bodies need, and tablets should be as well. That way, only 6 screen sizes exist, 3 for phones, 3 for tablets, and with all of them being scaled the same there shouldn't be issues with app compatibility.

Apple had better impress me this year. 2014 was ok, but I'm no longer buying under powered, easily obsolete devices. That 6s plus had better be spec'd hella good, and get every ios feature, or it's bye bye Apple. No more excuses, 1 gig ain't gonna cut it anymore.

Same ol dark bro, just not gonna continue defending Apple for resting on their laurels, and I'm simply voicing the opinions I've long held, but been silent on. Guess I'm not the blind Apple fanboy, I've been made out to be huh?

You would've been much liked, if you wasn't an Apple fan. But you spoke of truth, that you are not liked by anyone, accept you're iBuddies.

The people that I care about liking me live in the real world, not phonearena. You have to be a dumbass, to think I give a sh!t about being liked here. And you are a dumbass.

I ain't trolling him. Lmao. Just because I spoke the truth is trolling. Really. So next time we should lie and BS, and it will be classed as truth. Since when did he become suddenly a techie. A well known Apple fanboy. Says the guy whose a newbie and joined couple of months ago. Lmao. You don't know nothing about he's past.
