So if an iPad app will be updated to support the retina display. even ipad 2 users will be forced to update? So that means ipad2 users will have a huge app size even without retina display? Is this correct?

You wont be forced to update.

You can choose if you want to or not.

But once they start adding new features you will probably want to update.

Most retina updates aren't 5x as big like some sites are reporting. Many will only be a few extra MB.
