We are yet to see iPhone X released but we know that from day one it will come with the option of Netflix streamed in HDR (High Dynamic Range). So the newest flagship smartphone come with HDR Netflix ready on release.
Along with the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPad Pro get this option through a Netflix updated sent to the iOS app that will allow users watch any Netflix content in HDR.
You can enjoy this option on your iPads but for iPhone 8 you’ll have to wait until 27 October to preorder and after November to get it on sale. The same goes for iPhone 8, but this will be available a little sooner.
There’s one thing, in order to have Netflix HDR you will need to pay for a premium account so that you watch the great HDR content on your iPhone X, iPhone 8 or iPad Pro.
The iPad Pro was launched in June (both 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch versions) and had a display that would be compatible with HDR streaming. This feature wasn’t discussed much but as apps such as Netflix or other streaming services introduce the 4K HDR movies, we can now see why this option is important.
HDR Netflix Content Available for More Apple Devices
HDR streaming from Netflix is already available on Apple TV 4K, and Apple in partnership with Netflix has made this option available for their other devices. If you want to see HDR content on Netflix then you must search for this tab (‘HDR’) inside the app and you’ll see a list with all the content, from documentaries and shows to original TV series and movies.
Try this feature and you’ll see a huge difference in video. You’ll see better contrast, more brightness and a lot more colors and details
