As millions of technology enthusiasts eagerly await the March 7 unveiling of the third generation iPad, Ars Technica┬áhas revealed some interesting information regarding the next iPad device and the sixth version of Apple’s iOS operating system.

According to the Ars Technica server logs, some folks in Cupertino are accessing the Ars Technica website with iPad tablets running iOS 6 alongside the rumored display resolution of 2048×1536. The exclusive data suggests that the next iPad will offer the same retina technology that many have come to love with last two iPhone handsets.

iOS version 5.0.1 is currently available to consumers, and the 5.1.0 update is being tested by developers as we speak. While you shouldn’t expect the iPad 3 to launch alongside iOS 6, the system reports indicate that Apple is working hard to perfect the next mobile operating system.
