Netflix For iOS Updated With HDR Streaming On Supported Devices
Apple’s set-top box received a pretty significant update at the iPhone X event. The Apple TV 4K is capable of streaming 4K HDR videos, which is a welcome addition. Now, Netflix has released an update for iOS that will allow users to stream HDR content on their iOS device. Apart from this, the update also carries support for iOS 11 and enhancements for all users. The move comes as the iPhone 8 starts arriving to customers around the globe. So let’s dive in to see some more details on the matter.
Netflix For iOS Now Supports HDR Streaming On Selected Devices
At this point in time, the added HDR support in Netflix for iOS is limited for users. Netflix’s website denoted that the video standard is only available for the recently launched iPhone 8, it bigger variant, the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X. However, on the other side of things, The Verge notes that Netflix’s HDR support is also available for the newest 10.5-inch iPad Pro as well as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.
If not now, we can surely hope that the streaming service giant will release an update in which it will incorporate HDR support for other iOS devices as well. As of now, finding content on Netflix is a breeze. You can just type ‘HDR’ in the search section and the relevant host titles will be available to you. Moreover, this will also include the Netflix Originals as well as documentaries and films. Henceforth, there will be a lot of content available to you to watch on your new iPhone models and 2017 iPad Pro models.
Netflix for iOS is available for free on the App Store, so be sure to get it if you haven’t already. One more thing to note here is that a ‘premium subscription’ is required if you’re willing to stream HDR content. Moreover, Netflix also recommends a 25mbps internet connection.
Apple’s Apple TV 4K also features support for streaming 4K HDR content from Netflix. So it definitely makes sense for the company to release support for iOS devices as well. This means that users across the ecosystem will have high-quality video content available to them on various devices.
