With all the hype around it as of late one thing that’s definately expected from WWDC this summer is a new 2012 iMac and MacBook Pro range. Together with a collection of other rumours one of the most reccourent ones, and it seems most anticipated, is the possibility of the 2012 iMac range having Retina displays. Well we have further kindle to add to the flame of this rumour today, coming from a recent update that has been issued by ‘FolderWatch’, a popular mac OS-X app that has now been updated to specifically support ‘Retina Graphics’.
The app itself allows you to keep a copy of an ongoing project on an external hard drive or file server, it may not be the most graphics intensive app that would hugely benefit from retina graphics, but the simple fact that a mac app has been optimised for retina graphics is exciting in itself.
Surely they wouldnt go to the trouble of retina optimising their app if they did not know or were at least pretty sure that a retina enabled mac range would be hitting the shelves soon. The new range of Macs is alrgely expected to be unveiled to the public by CEO Tim Cook at WWDC 2012 on June 11th. With its announcement breathing down our neck it seems we could only be days away from an all new range featuring super new Retina quality displays.
Other rumoured changes for both the notebook and desktop are significnatly slimmer designs, new state of the art ivy bridge processors and ‘Anti-reflective’ displays as standard.
