Netflix finally invites iPhone and iPad to the HDR party

Netflix has been gradually adding HDR support for mobile devices, but until now they’ve all been Android phones.

That all changes today with the new version of Netflix for iOS.

Owners of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X and 2017 iPad Pro models (10.5 and 12.9) will now be able to enjoy High Dynamic Range content in Dolby Vision.

Users will require a Premium subscription, which costs a couple of bucks more than the standard HD subscription.

Apple had not mentioned HDR display support for its 2017 iPhones and iPads, so it’s questionable whether true HDR will be in play.

However, viewers will likely see an uptick in quality for the darkest darks and lightest lights and overall vividness of colours when watching the content.

Android leads the way

Previously, Netflix had announced Dolby Vision support for the LG G6.

The LG V30, Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Sony Xperia ZX1 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 can access the content through an alternate HDR standard.

Many Netflix originals already offer support for HDR, including Marco Polo (pictured). A Series of Unfortunate Events, Bloodline, Daredevil, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones are among the others.

Supported shows are tagged as such.
