Apple could re-design the Retina display technology with IGZO

iPad 3 Retina Apple podría re diseñar la pantalla Retina con la tecnología IGZO

As you all know, the iPad 3 brought the "resolucionaria" Retina display with an amazing resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. Due to the huge number of pixels that have to meet the 9.7 inch, the backlight is required is much stronger, which aggravates the battery and even adds a bit of thickness to the device.

A new report quotes an expert who says he screens the Cupertino are working on technology enhanced Retina for an update of the third generation iPad. The new display is thought to be thinner and consume less energy, which would replace existing units with new iPad for a better battery life and less need for heat dissipation.

Richard Shim, an analyst at research firm NPD DisplaySearch, think, based on their sources of supply chain, Apple could use GZO panels to reduce the thickness of the screen and the heat it generates.

"We are seeing that Apple is working with panel makers to get a screen that allows a more slender and more battery life."

DisplaySearch wrote in a press release last week:

"Apple is working with the supply chain of LCD's to refresh the screen, including review of the LED backlight to reduce costs, refine the thermal solution, reducing weight by replacing some components and improve transmission panel to consume less energy. "

According to the analyst, Samsung might be one of the manufacturers likely, although Apple has reduced orders for components for the iPhone 5 to Koreans, as we saw. In addition, this clashes with a DigiTimes report that we saw in the summer, which said that the review of the iPad panels could perform the Japanese company Sharp. In addition, Apple's favorite manufacturer, Foxconn, has recently acquired a plant that produces Sharp's IGZO panels, in a clear attempt to "strike a blow" to Samsung. However, Samsung is still currently the main supplier for the Retina display of third generation iPad.

If true this rumor, this would mean that Apple would recognize and accept, as happened with the famous case Antenagate on the iPhone, the iPad Retina performance may not be in its high standards. However, the 12 rules of Steve Jobs , saw it was to recognize the errors, so Apple should have no problem recognizing that the interior design of the new iPad can be improved.

The research firm estimates that Apple could make about 7 million iPad Retina with new technology.

This report coincides with one launched by Jeremy Horwitz, iLounge editor, he wrote that the improved iPad 3 could be released later this year, including small improvements in its internal operations and changing the dock connector for the smaller version that will suppose the iPhone 5.

"The current plan for the new iPad Apple is to release a modified version modestly, keeping the shape but introducing the new smaller dock connector, a microphone in the rear and interior design changes to reduce the heat emitted by the device . "

Call it fourth generation iPad or just new version of the iPad 3, but this is the first time that Apple would skip the annual cycle of updates to their mobile devices to update an iOS device with better technology.

The truth is that, although the first time he skips the renewal cycle, we are not surprised that Apple will take anything out. Just take a look at the Apple TV ads for the iPad, iPhone and even the new MacBook Pro, all focused on one thing, the Retina display.

Those who have an iPad 3, are you satisfied with the performance of the Retina display? What would seem that Apple will launch an improved version just months after launching the new iPad? Actually, if I had bought the iPad 3 and launch an improved version nothing I would not appreciate.
