Developers Add Fuel to Retina Display Mac Rumors

Apple hasn’t confirmed that high resolution Macs are coming soon, but that hasn’t stopped speculation that the company plans to release new computers with retina displays — and now developers are adding fuel to those rumors by releasing app updates touting higher resolution interfaces.

FolderWatch from Brothers Roloff released an update for its FolderWatch app on Friday through the Mac App Store that lists retina graphics as one of its new features, although Apple currently doesn’t sell any computers with display resolutions high enough to qualify as “retina.”

Since Apple doesn’t tip its hand and reveal new product features until it is ready, its likely that FolderWatch’s higher resolution graphics are simply a preemptive move on the part of the developers just in case Apple does release higher resolution display computers soon, possibly even at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference next week.

Apple will be hosting its annual conference for developers starting on June 11 and will kick off the event Monday morning with a keynote presentation where it’s assumed new products will be announced, and features in the upcoming OX S Mountain Lion and iOS 6 releases will be highlighted, too.

The Mac Observer will be covering Apple’s WWDC keynote event live and on location Monday morning, so be sure to check in to learn about all of the company’s announcements.
