Now that the new iPad with its high-resolution display is here, new challenges are rising in front of Apple. Retina Display is like a well-praised diva, which enchants the audience but also requires high maintenance and demands.
As tech oriented websites have noticed since last week, and users are going to realise from now on - the new iPad requires larger apps, which are able to make the best out of the Retina Display.
It's no good having such an impressive piece of technology, with a quad core graphics processor, if there aren't enough apps suitable for the device.
In order to make its own apps for the third generation iPad, Apple would need to invest heavily. The developers need to rely on vectors, in order to keep their apps at a reasonable size.
The top of the line company that develops the necessary software package is Adobe, but with the long dispute between Adobe and Apple, a partnership is the least likely. If it could eye Adobe, Apple would have no problem in raising the money, as Adobe is currently valued at $17 billion. A more convenient purchase, for the same purpose, to obtain the appropriate software would be Corel - a company that is valued at about $1 billion.
