Gyroscope and Retinal Display: iPhone 4 Explained

By Peter Chubb - Jun 7, 2010

Steve Jobs did what we all expected today, and that was to announce the new iPhone 4 during his WWDC 2010 keynote. Some of the features announced we already knew thanks to a certain article on Gizmodo, but there were two features left out – Gyroscope and Retinal Display.

They both sound like something that you would expect to see in a James Bond movie, so what are they? The retinal display is a technology that offers 4x the amount of pixel density – in return giving you sharper text. Jobs said “there has never been a display like this.”

According to Jobs, the text will look just like it would in fine print form – this will be perfect for all those who have trouble reading the text on the current iPhone 3GS, 3G or 2G models. More on this can be found on The Next Web.

Gyroscope was the other feature mentioned, this is something that will be used while playing games – such as the Guitar Hero app. Now while you play a game you can tilt it back-and-forth and side-to-side, this will certainly make gaming all the more enjoyable now.
