The problem is, the image file can not support this image resolution, so the image who have default resolution look blury. For tweak this case we need make image must have 2x resolution of default image and the image look sharp.

To solve this problem many things what we can do. Like we can use retina.js library. but on this post i have some alternative only using jQuery script.

The advantages of this case, we can reduce usage of javascript library, and make our site more fast. and this is not only run on apple device but also on android device. please follow this step by step.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

// Check if load on HD Screen
var query = "(-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (min-resolution: 192dpi)";

  if (matchMedia(query).matches) {
    // If HD Screen
    // Get default image URL
    var default_image = $('img');
    var image_src = $(default_image).attr('src');
    // get file name from image url
    var src = image_src.split('/');
    var file = src[src.length - 1].split('.');
    var file_extention = file[1];

    // Update filename ie : filename@2x.png
    var hd_image = image_src.replace(file_name, file_name + '@2x');

    // Check image availability
    var image = new Image();
    image.src = hd_image;
