The Netflix for iOS app was today updated to version 7.0, adding support for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. With the new fully optimized app, more content is visible on the screen and menu bars are shrunken down to a more appropriate size for the bigger display.
The app has also gained support for iOS 8 and it introduces full 1080p HD streaming video on the larger-screened iPhone 6 Plus, made possible because of the native 1920 x 1080 resolution of the device. 1080p streaming is not available on the iPhone 6, which has a resolution of 1334 x 750.
According to Netflix, users will just need "a good WiFi connection" to take advantage of 1080p streaming on the iPhone 6 Plus, with 1080p resolution extending to movies and Netflix original TV shows like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards.
