Retina is the brand name that Apple use to describe their high quality displays. There is no defined number of pixels per inch (ppi) for a retina device. Smaller devices such as the iPhone have 326 ppi, the iPad has 264 ppi and the MacBook Pro has 220 ppi. Larger devices do not need as many pixels per inch as the user will be viewing the screen from a much further distance.
In the WordPress world, the term “Retina” has come to refer to all high pixel density devices. Due to the increase in usage on devices with high quality screens, many WordPress designers have optimized their themes so that they look great. Today, we have prepared for you a list of twenty five high quality WordPress themes that are “Retina Ready”. We hope you enjoy the list 🙂
