Amazon Video on iOS adds 3D touch and X-ray in major update

Amazon has stepped up its battle with Netflix on iOS devices, with a brand new version of its Video app.

The updated Amazon Video app adds a host of new features, including support for 3D touch on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

This will make it easier for users to access their favourite content right from the iOS 9 homescreen.

The company is also introducing the IMDb-powered X-Ray feature, which brings information on cast, crew, soundtracks as well as trivia for the movie or TV show

Users will also be able to multitask while watching Amazon videos with the new picture in picture feature for iPad users.

Speaking of the iPad, this newest version is the first to offer full iPad Pro optimisation.

Lastly, there’s now a Next Up feature which is a fancier way of saying autoplay.

The new app is available to download from the App Store now and follows the addition of offline playback for the entire library.

Also on Tuesday, Microsoft added 3D touch support for OneDrive, while Google also did so for its Drive cloud storage platform.
