iPad 3 codename found in iOS 5, offers Retina Display

The site says the devices are codenamed J1 and J2, which appeared in a recent version of iOS 5. Apple has not yet decided which model to launch.

The latter is believed to be the Retina Display version which could mean that the new iPad will require two light bars.

That would presuppose an increase in the iPad 3’s thickness by 8%. To address this issue of thickness, Apple suppliers produced a display that uses just one light bar, but combines two LED chips instead of one.

This means the device would maintain both a thinner design but also the Retina Display.

According to reports, Samsung, Sharp and LGD are at work producing high resolution Retina Display panels for the iPad 3.
