Apple Approves Mac App with Retina Display Support

Folder Watch - Retina graphics

It appears someone at Apple may have let the cat out of the bag when it comes to new Macs receiving Retina Display technology.

Rumors have been swirling that at least the MacBook Pro would receive Retina Display technology, and some have even gone further to say that MacBook Air and iMac would also be getting the love.  Now it seems there is at least somewhat more concrete proof that this is about to happen.

TheNextWeb spotted that an app called FolderWatch has received a new update, and amongst its “What’s New” listing was just a very simple line that said “Retina Graphics.”  The developer also tweeted out the following message:

Apple just approved FolderWatch 2.0.4. The app is ready for retina displays and comes with a couple handy new features.

It could easily be argued that the developer was simply trying to hedge their bets against all of the rumors, but Apple has to approve all updates before they are released to the Mac App Store, so you have to assume someone, somewhere spotted the mention int he approval process.

No, it isn’t rock solid evidence that the MacBook Pro will be getting Retina Displays, or possibly an entirely new MacBook line, but it does make you wonder for a moment.
