Viewport resolution (CSS rules)

It is the resolution that interests designers and developers the most because it determines the breakpoints and the definition of media queries. In general we only talk about this resolution.
For the Apple iPad Air (2020) it is :

  • 1180 pixels width
  • 820 pixels height ⚠️ the height is indicative because the Safari browser, Chrome, etc. reduce the visible area

ℹ️ Some analytics tools only display the manufacturer resolution (below) and not the one presented above, so be careful when interpreting the results.

Pixel density

On the Apple iPad Air (2020) it is 2

If you want to target devices with at least this pixel density in CSS, you can use this media query.

                        
                            @media only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2) {
    /* CSS */
}

Also in javascript, it is possible to retrieve the value of the pixel density.

                        
                            window.devicePixelRatio
// Which will return the figure 2
