    No.

    Unless you are playing 4K movies, a higher resolution screen will make no difference. The present Retina iPads can play 1080p movies at native resolution.

    Are you talking about the iPhone 6, or 6+?

    Either way, if the iPad's screen went from 2x2 retina to 3x3 retina (which is I think what Retina HD is) I expect the GPU would start to cry.

    Well to be technical, I hope not. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus resolution is significantly lower than on either of the current iPads. But if you mean the display technology, then I would assume so.

    iPad resolution is plenty big. It just doesn't need a higher resolution one.

    I hope the display technology improves to be more inline with that of the iPhone 6/6+, however I wouldn't bet on it. Just remember the present iPad Mini screen...

    No reason to assume it won't happen again. The iPad is not Apple's flagship.

    Random Thought: It's interesting to think that the next iPad Air/Mini may be the only iOS devices to actually improve their real graphics performance this year, as the larger screens on the iPhone 6/6+ kill off all the improvement of the A8. (based off benchmarks)

    ...

    I am not an Apple Store.

    I do not own either an iPad or an iPhone.

    I use technical knowledge and logic to arrive at conclusions.

    The display technology (not just resolution/pixels) will no doubt be spread to other Apple products. Retina was first on iPhone 4. Then iPad. Then Mac.

    You think the movie looks better on the iPhone because the screen is smaller than the iPad and of course much more forgiving to video artifacts...

    Sharpness isn't determined by the total number of pixels but by the number of pixels per inch. By that measurement, the iPhone 6 Plus as well as the 6 are higher resolution than the iPad by a wide margin. The ppi of the iPad is 264, the ppi of the 6 is 326, the ppi of the 6 Plus is 401. So the OP probably isn't imagining things.

    I posted this in another thread, but I wouldn't be shocked to see the iPad Air 2 (or maybe next year's 3 instead) go to a 2X Retina 1280x960 screen (2560x1920 actual pixels). It's a logical size in a lot of ways, and it brings the PPI in line with iPhones and the retina iPad mini (330 PPI specifically).
