Apple Begins To Impose Retina Display Graphics

Apple sent out an email today to all developers requesting that all screenshots in app updates or new apps must be in retina size. As we know Apple is picky about small details, and especially doesn’t like fragmentation. This doesn’t mean that there will be no support for older devices like the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3rd Generation, however, we know that Apple will start to discontinue support for them soon. If your phone is over two years old you may want to consider getting a new one if your contract allows.

Required iPhone & iPod touch Screenshot Upgrade for Retina Display

When you create or update your apps in iTunes Connect, you must upload screenshots that are high-resolution. We require your screenshots as high-resolution images so that your app is optimized for the Retina display.

The requirements for high-resolution images are 960 x 640, 960 x 600, 640 x 960, or 640 x 920 pixels. Images must be at least 72 dpi, in the RGB color space, and the file must be .jpeg, .jpg, .tif, .tiff, or .png. You can update your screenshot files at any time in iTunes Connect. [From Email]
