    I hear you and your stand dead on but for the first time in the iPhones existence Apple has legitimate competition and the competition is pushing really high resolution screens, now Apple knows this and while they as a company usually doesn't make changes just for the sake of making them. Now they doubled the resolution of the Ipad a market they basically own everyone knows this they increased the resolution of the mbp not because the competition is killing them but because they could. Now the Iphone is this companies money maker if your going to blow the competition out of the water and keep your edge and its happening around the same time your making a change to your bread and butters screen size for the first time if they were ever going to change the pixel density on the Iphone it would be now
    Multiple posters have responded with good business and technical reasons why Apple will not double the resolution in the iPhone 5, and yet you keep clinging to the idea. (This is why someone called you "high" earlier in the thread.)

    In all honesty, no. Neither "bragging rights" nor "because they can" are good reasons for doubling the resolution.

    Well I know it's an awful good selling point especially now that they know they would be the first smartphone with resolution higher than any hd tv. And while you have a valid point they didn't have to even increase the resolution of the iPad or the Mac book pro. Yet if you've seen a commercial for either what are the showing as its greatest feature you bet ya those screens so I'll conclude with this, every point made on this thread was valid and I enjoyed it I was just stating where I believe Apple will go based on the simple idea that this iPhone would be more powerful spec wise than even the new IPad.

    Prior to the current release, neither of those product lines had a retina display. The highest resolution iPad was 1024 x 768... and the highest resolution MacBook Pro was 1680 x 1050. The iPhone has been retina for TWO generations (iPhone 4 and 4S). It made sense for those devices to carry a retina display.

    I'm going to say it again: "bragging rights" and "because they can" are not valid reasons. It is not happening. The human eye can't detect it, and there is no valid, practical reason for them to even consider it.

    But in all seriousness I'm hoping they use sharps igzo panels for the new iPhone. Is a thinner panel uses 2/3rds less power and is significantly more responsive

    I'm sticking with my earlier position I truly believe when the iPhone arrives this fall it will feature a much larger screen not just taller but wider as well. My reasoning is simple iOS 6 has auto layout APIs built right in like osx so developers can easily generate their apps to fit the screen of any size. if you don't believe me google iPhone auto layout and see for yourself.

    Apple will NOT double the resolution of the iPhone 4/4S for the new phone (iPhone 5?)... Never.Gonna.Happen. Isn't the iPhone retina display already the highest resolution phone on the market?
    Actually no (or at least not for long), both Samsung and LG have higher resolution displays with larger screens available with new products rolling out later this year if they are already not out.
