Rumor: Sixth-generation iPad to have 40 percent higher pixel density KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been great with Apple predictions and leaks, states that next year's sixth-generation iPad will have 40 percent higher pixel density than that of current models (including the yet-to-be released 2013 version), a huge boost.
There had been speculation that the next iPad could move away from the 9.7-inch form factor and get larger (such as 11.6-inches), but Kuo dismisses those rumors, at least for this year.

Kuo also discusses next year's iPad Mini successor (third-generation), and says that since this year's model will introduce a Retina display, there will be no resolution updates next year.

Apple will introduce its fifth-generation iPad and second-generation iPad Mini later this month on October 22nd.

Just one question...why? Don't they realize that the rest of the industry is taking share from them based primarily on price? Do they really think throwing money into an resolution increase that no one will be able to see while screwing up countless apps that were written with the assumption that the screen resolution would never change is going to get that market share back?
