Apple is on its way of revamping the online store with powerful, high-resolution graphics. Callum Strong, front-end developer with Fat Media, has discovered the signs of Retina graphics on Apple’s server.
On Wednesday, the Apple Store got closed for an update that, as Callum claims, was aimed for the new Retina-graphics support, meaning that the update hasn’t got live. Third generation iPad and new MacBook Pro owners still have to deal with pixelated images when browsing the Apple Store.
The updated graphics can be differentiated by the regular ones after the tag “2x” thus, retina graphics can be identified by the name email@example.com.
Apple began to silently upgrade the resolution of the images in the Apple Store before the third generation iPad was launched and the yesterday’s update is the proof of a wonderful work in progress.
