What Does Retina-Ready Mean?
Before we delve into the list of themes, let’s first pause for a brief moment to talk about what retina-ready means. It’s likely a phrase you’ve seen tossed around quite a lot these days but unless you have a retina display yourself, it might be a concept you’re a bit sketchy on.
The term “retina-ready” was actually created by Apple when the iPhone 4 was released. It refers to devices that are capable of displaying more pixels per square inch. The result is sharper images with pixels that aren’t discernible by the human eye. So, for a WordPress theme to be retina-ready, it must allow for graphics and images that present at a higher resolution with a greater number of pixels per square inch.
