The new detection options for iPad

If I understand the new detection options I can not detect iPad1 from iPad2 but I can use the Retina option to detect iPad3.

I always used tiled images with 512 pixels without tablet images. This forces the iPad to use the 1024 level.
But question is will the iPad 3 use 2048 automatically or do I need to ad a display setting like this.
<display usedesktopimages="true" hardwarelimit="2048" devices="iPad+Retina" />

And if so do I also need to ad a display settings for iPad1+2 and iPhone like this
<display usedesktopimages="true" hardwarelimit="1024" devices="iPad | iPhone+Retina" />


<image type="CUBE" multires="true" tilesize="512" progressive="false">
<level tiledimagewidth="4096" tiledimageheight="4096">
<cube url="panos/03.tiles/l4_%s_%0v%0h.jpg" />
</level>
<level tiledimagewidth="2048" tiledimageheight="2048">
<cube url="panos/03.tiles/l3_%s_%0v%0h.jpg" />
</level>
<level tiledimagewidth="1024" tiledimageheight="1024">
<cube url="panos/03.tiles/l2_%s_%0v%0h.jpg" />
</level>
<level tiledimagewidth="512" tiledimageheight="512">
<cube url="panos/03.tiles/l1_%s_%0v%0h.jpg" />
</level>

</image>

Also maybe I could ad a 1400 tablet image and use this but the iPad 1+5.1 crashes if I ad a lot of extra videos or popup images.

<tablet> devices="iPad+iOS5.1"
<cube url="panos/03.tiles/tablet_%s.jpg" />
</tablet>

Hi,
If I understand the new detection options I can not detect iPad1 from iPad2 but I can use the Retina option to detect iPad3.
right, detecting the iPad 2 itself is not possible,
but by detecting an iPad and an Retina screen, it's possible to detect an iPad 3 (or in future iPad 4, 5, 6 or whatever...)


I always used tiled images with 512 pixels without tablet images. This forces the iPad to use the 1024 level.
But question is will the iPad 3 use 2048 automatically or do I need to ad a display setting like this.
<display usedesktopimages="true" hardwarelimit="2048" devices="iPad+Retina" />
yes, you need that setting - then the 2048px level will be used,

by default, that means without any settings, it will behave like on iPad 1 or 2 at the moment and use the 1024px level,
I need to do real iPad 3 testing before I will change this default behavior,


And if so do I also need to ad a display settings for iPad1+2 and iPhone like this
<display usedesktopimages="true" hardwarelimit="1024" devices="iPad | iPhone+Retina" />
that would be not necessary, when there are no <mobile> or <tablet> images, then the current version will already look for a suitable <level> size, which would be the 1024px level for iPad and iPhone4,


Also maybe I could ad a 1400 tablet image and use this but the iPad 1+5.1 crashes if I ad a lot of extra videos or popup images.
yes, that would be also a possibility of course,


btw - I should get my iPad 3 tomorrow or at least the day after tomorrow - then I will be able to do real iPad 3 testing and will be able to tell more details, then I will also adopt the viewer and tools to use (and generate if needed) higher resolution images for the iPad 3 automatically,

best regards,
Klaus

Thanks I just got it tested from Australia.

http://qtvr.dk/test2048/

This uses the display setting for level 3 2048x2048 and tablet images for iPad1+2

He says it is a little jerky while loading and that my 1024 version felt smoother to move.
