Hi guys,

there are lots of places where you can see what websites look like in older browsers, browsers with no js, browsers with different op’s but does anyone know where to check for retina displays?

My wordpress theme has retina in mind but i cant test to make sure everything looks good.

Thanks

If you doubled up the image sizes and proportions are still the same, you’re pretty much safe. If you don’t have a retina display to test with, switch from the pixel-ratio media query to something width-based. That’s what I did and, when I got to check it out on the new iPad, all was good :)

P.S.: Now that you mentioned it, I’m considering offering retina display testing services on my Retina MBP . Authors, right this way please :D:P

If you’re on a Mac get the official iOS simulator from apple, whic is part of the XCode suite! A must have tool for poor web designers like me :)

If you are on Mac you can emulate a high-resolution display (instructions).
