netflixNetflix today updated its iOS app to add support for iOS 11 and Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR) video on compatible devices.

According to Netflix, Dolby Vision is available on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, and the 12.9 and 10.5-inch iPad Pro models. Netflix's HDR content is also available on the new Apple TV 4K.

Netflix first promised to introduce HDR quality content for mobile viewing back in March, and support comes just as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are launching.

HDR titles can be found on Netflix by searching for "HDR." There is a limited amount of HDR content available on Netflix, and much of it limited to Netflix-created television shows and movies.

To view HDR content, Netflix requires subscribers to have a premium plan, priced at $11.99. The $11.99 price provides access to HD and Ultra UD content along with the ability to watch on four screens at once and download videos on four phones or tablets.

Netflix can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Ughh the iPhone 8 doesnt do HDR??

According to Netflix ('https://help.netflix.com/en/node/23927'), Dolby Vision is available on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, and the 12.9 and 10.5-inch iPad Pro models. Netflix's HDR content is also available on the new Apple TV 4K.

Did you read this paragraph?
And the 2017 10.5” iPad Pro
Yeah, that was already stated. What wasn’t clarified by MacRumors was that only the 2017 iPad Pro models support HDR, so the older 12.9” and the 9.7” do not do HDR.

Just go to apple’s website, select the product, go to the tech specs, video playback section and, if it is compatible, it will state “Supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 content”, if it does not state that, it is not compatible. (7/7+ are not compatible.)

I realize the Netflix support website literally says Dolby Vision is supported through its app on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but they must be mistaken. The only iPhone to support HDR, let alone Dolby Vision, is the iPhone X. They also failed to specify which iPad Pros (2017 10.5 inch and 2017 12.9 inch) support the standard. I’m just shocked no one at Netflix or MacRumors when reporting it caught this. The iPhone 8 series does NOT support HDR...
From apple’s website, go to iPhone, click compare, scroll down to video playback section.

Which iOS devices have 10 bit display panels?
None, the only tablet with a 10 bit OLED HDR display panel available is the galaxy tab S3.

Just watched part of The Defenders side-by-side on my iPad 3 and iPad Pro 10.5”. The only difference I noticed were that reds were a little more saturated in some scenes on the Pro. (And the Pro has a bit better contrast overall, but that applies to all content)

Oh, and the Pro also has awful automatic contrast adjustment when no controls are on the screen. It blows out highlights. Why don't more people complain about this?

The biggest difference I think with HDR content is peak brightness. The 10.5 iPad screen is 600 nits which in the grand scheme of things, is on the low end for HDR displays. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying the iPad screen is bad but obviously a larger screen with higher nits gives a better HDR experience.

I have not watched The Defenders so I don't how the good the HDR is on that one. Some movies look much better. Try watching Pacific Rim in HDR if thats available on iTunes. That is great HDR demo material. Mad Max is another one. My Vizio P-Series is only 600 nits as well but both of those look amazing.
