Tipsters to The Next Web are reporting that Apple is now looking at graphics-intensive games and apps to showcase as part of its iPad 3 launch, which is speculated to occur in March. The Cupertino, California iOS-maker had historically used apps and games to showcase the experience and hardware prowess of the company’s devices.
According to the tipsters, Apple is examining “graphics-oriented applications with high-definition assets.”
The iPad 3 is rumored to be carrying a higher resolution screen than the iPad 1 and iPad 2, with a 2048 X 1536-pixel resolution. An updated processor, dubbed the A6, would accompany the flagship iOS tablet as well. Unlike Android slates, which are vying for quad-core processing, Apple is rumored to be utilizing an improved dual-core chip with the A6 line and inject much improved graphics performance.
Some of these apps will be featured in Apple’s announcement on stage with the iPad 3 while others may be featured in future TV commercials and advertisements. The selection process is said to be “continuing at an increased rate as Apple looks to finalize the lineup for the iPad 3.”
