    So it won't be possible to draw a pixelperfect 1px line? Yeh, Apple must be kiddin' … That's even worse than Android. Do we really need an iPhone 6 plus?! WTF! :(

      I wonder if, because the physical pixel dimensions are even smaller than a retina display, would the fact that it's not pixel perfect even be noticeable??

        It will be pixel perfect in the Points, but not in "pixels" but as you said. the small anti alias will look nice, and be damn near invisible to anyone's eyes.

        And the trade off that the 6s can have a true higher resolution (Read: non downsampled) screen means we don't have to redo anything later!

        Can you tell the difference between a 1px thick line and a 2px thick line in a running app on an iPhone 5/5s/5c/4s/4? If so, you’ll likely be able to notice that the iPhone 6 Plus isn’t pixel perfect.

        I'm wondering that myself at 401ppi. Hopefully this spec splinter will be short lived and fairly inconsequential in the long run.
