“If you somehow missed all the hype, the new iPad features a huge jump in screen resolution with the Retina display. Packing in four times the number of pixels in iPad 2 (and a million times more than an HDTV), the Retina display gives end users an unbelievable visual experience,” Igor Faletski writes for CNET.
“Yet what feels like beautifully simple technology for consumers can give Web site owners a new set of headaches,” Faletski explains. “The precise rendering of images on the Retina display reveals rough edges across the Web. Text may be pin-sharp, but put that text alongside photos, and those images don’t look so hot. Logos appear blurred. Even shopping cart buttons become grainy.”
Faletski writes, “Chances are virtually all Web sites will need to eventually catch up to the iPad’s high definition display; however, it’s more critical for those brands that lean on imagery to sell their products, such as fashion and apparel retailers, restaurants, hospitality companies and more.”
Here are four steps that can be taken today to adapt your Website to the new iPad Retina display:
1) Prioritize important images
2) Turn text into text
3) Boost button sizes
4) Increase logo size
