This thought has been bugging me. One of the main reasons I wanted an iPad Air 2 was that I assumed the Air 3 could get a higher resolution. I got burned bad by the iPad 3. It's a nice device, but the problems are well documented. Next year I'll be very ready for a new iPad, but I really think we'll see some form of a higher resolution screen. Assuming the iPad gets an @3x display resolution of 3072 by 2304 pixels do you think the A8X or A9X would struggle? The iPad 3 had the same A5 chip as the iPad 2, just with 2 extra graphic cores which were more than used by the 2x resolution. The Air 2 has 5.6 times the CPU and 10 times the graphical performance as the A5X so I would think it could handle this resolution smoothly. Do you think a higher resolution iPad would lag/stutter like the 3 did after a few iOS updates?
