    Since the next iPhones will be getting new Retina displays, will Apple rename the R.D.? Or will they keep it?

    If they change the name, they'll have to change it for the next gen MBA, MBPr, and iPad lineup for sure!

    Well for one, there is nothing set in stone that the display will change. Plenty of speculation of course, but nothing factual.

    That said, when Apple coined the term Retina Display, they did so stating that Retina Display meant the screen had a high enough pixel density that the human eye could not detect individual pixels on its own from a typical viewing distance. If they improve/increase the resolution of the screens leading to higher ppi, then the term Retina Display would still apply.

    There has been some speculation that I've seen from people that they might call it "Super Retina" or something like that, but it would still be called a Retina Display anyway.

    Apple will find someway to market it because HD just doesn't cut it. Maybe Super Retina, but less than Androids High end devices, screen ha I kid, but I feel like the retina name has ran it's course and they can either ignore it or find some new witty name for their new screens.
