Netflix has a growing library of High Dynamic Range content and it’s gradually enabling support for devices that have the ability to take advantage of this standard. The company has updated its iOS app to add HDR support for newer Apple devices. These devices include the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X. The 10.5 inch and 12.9 inch 2017 iPad Pro is also mentioned in the list of iOS devices that can stream HDR content through the Netflix app.
Netflix HDR support is already live for several Android smartphones. Those who have picked up an iPhone 8 or are planning to pick up an iPhone X will be delighted to know that their new handset will have the ability to stream HDR content from Netflix.
The 2017 iPad Pro is also compatible so tablet users will be table to take advantage of the extra screen real estate on their devices to enjoy HDR content from Netflix. There is one caveat, though.
Netflix only provides HDR content to those who have subscribed to its premium plan. It’s a bit more expensive but then again, you get what you pay for. Subscribers then have to look for content with the HDR or Dolby Vision tags.
Not all titles in Netflix’s library have those tags but it’s gradually increasing HDR content and more will be added to its library down the line.
