2012, the news site said.
How might the new battery affect the overall design
of the iPad 3?
Boy Genius Report suggests that a thinner, lighter
battery could mean Apple will make the iPad 3 even
thinner than its predecessor, which has a depth of
just .34 inches.
Or the new battery could give Apple the room it
needs to add a Retina Display, BGR suggests further.

Citing “institutional investors” as its sources, the
Taiwanese news site reported yesterday that the
new battery will not only be thinner and lighter but
offer a longer life than the iPad 2s battery. The new
battery will also need to meet higher standards for
quality and reliability, which means that Apple’s
cost for it could shoot up by 20 to 30 percent.

Images found in the software development kit for
iOS 5 have kicked the rumor mill back into gear.
Tech site TechUnwrapped reported yesterday that a
tipster found images in the framework for integra-
ting Twitter into Apple’s next mobile OS that were
double the 1,024×768 resolution used in the cur-
rent iPad. Based on those images, TechUnwrapped
said this could mean the next-gen iPad will offer a
2,048×1,536 Retina Display.
However, since the high-resolution images were
initially found only in the Twitter framework,
TechUnwrapped seemed dubious that an iPad 3
would hit the market this September at the same
time that iOS 5 is released–a rumor that was floating
around several months ago. But a later update to
the TechUnwrapped story also revealed high-re-
solution images found in Apple’s new Newsstand
app, offering another potential piece of evidence
for a Retina Display.
Apple’s Retina Display launched last summer with
the iPhone 4. Its high density of 326 pixels per inch
makes text and images look smoother and crisper
than on previous displays.
