iPhone improves graphics on its non-Retina iPad display

ios_6

Confused? Here’s the gist of it. You have iPhone apps, iPad apps, and Universal apps. The last category includes both iPhone and iPad support, meaning you can download a Universal app on your iPhone and it will display natively, or you can download that same Universal app on your iPad and it will display natively (as in full-screen).

At the moment (in iOS 6), any non-Universal iPhone app that you download on your iPad will show up in a small area of the screen, precisely as it does on the iPhone. A 2x button is presented allowing you to blow up the image to fill the screen, but the problem is that the resulted UI is pixelated.

That’s because dumb-old iOS 6 doesn’t bother to check with the binary’s resources for any Retina-grade graphics. It simply doubles the pixels to fill the display.

iOS 7, on the other hand, fetches any Retina-grade assets it can find and uses those assets to display a more crisp app on iPads that don’t have Retina displays. According to those who’ve played with the feature, the iPad mini running iOS 7 will display any iPhone app full-screen by default.
