Early this month, at the Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple unveiled the new iOS 5 and some of it’s’ features. Steve Jobs spoke about one thing in particular about the new iOS 5; which was that it would be able to play high resolution 1080p video content on the iPad 2. This ultimately means that the iPhone 5 will also spot the feature.
In the past iOS 4 only gave iPhone and iPad users the 720p playback. With the fall arrival of the iOS 5 that will all change and work hand in hand with the iPad 2; which now sports the A5 chip. The concern with this new development is the resolution. Still iPhone is a contender for high resolution video, following the iPad 2. The question which is being raised is; are the rumors true about Apple duplicating the A5 chipset in iPad 2 for the iPhone 5?
Though the screen resolution issues will not be updated with the fall release of iOS 5 the one thing that this does mean is that Apple plans to incorporate higher resolution display on iPads and iPhones in the future.
