Netflix today updated its iOS app to add support for Apple's latest devices, the iPhone 6s and the iPad Pro. The app now includes a layout that's been optimized for the 12.9-inch screen of the iPad Pro for an improved look that offers more content at a glance.

3D Touch support is available in the form of Peek and Pop gestures, providing more information about movies and television shows from the main browsing screen. 3D Touch support does not extend to Home screen Quick Actions.

WHAT THE F%*^. Still no picture in picture. It's been 9 months including beta. Your the number one streaming app and don't support the headline feature of iOS 9

Gosh! It's honestly the main reason I got an iPad Air 2 over my iPad 4.

You want to watch two Netflix shows on the same screen?


Pip lets you keep the video playing in a small box while you use other apps.

Maybe pip is a problem with iOS and not Netflix.

My 3 year old Note 3.

That seems like split-screen and not PiP.

And split-screen and PiP options are offered by iOS now (at least for iPads) so it's up to the app developers to take advantage of them.

I just YouTube in safari and request desktop mode and use PiP that way. Seems to work okay. The biggest concern is it seems to take a little longer to load videos.

I wish Netflix would have added it in this update.

Jesus do you people even know what PIP is????? The whole point Apple implemented it is so you can be in ANY app and still watch something. Youtube PIP only work in their app, pointless if you want to do other things. Same with Netlfix.

I'm curious, why would you want to watch two shows at the same time?
[doublepost=1456342679][/doublepost]

You got rid of Netflix because it recommended other shows?


No but perhaps he would like to see a show, and surf the web at the same time.
Netflix should bring an update to support split screen at least.
And Apple should update iOS for iPad to allow for vertical split screen /multitasking instead of just horizontal.

... like the horrendous AppleTV version.

i really don't like how Netflix works on the new Apple TV, it just lets you binge on! It had been bothering me for some time now, as sometimes i fall asleep watching something on Netflix and its just goes on and on, even after the TV goes off. Then I have to wake up and scroll back up to the last episode i remember watching. First world problem, i know... but you'd think that issue would've been resolved by now.

now if only Netflix, and every other video app, could add a button to skip ahead 10 or 15 seconds because trying to jump ahead using the bar sucks really, really bad.
