YouTube introduces HDR Video Support for iPhone X

Youtube has started rolling out with a support from high dynamic range video content on iPhone X. The high Dynamic range gives a wider range of colours and luminance compared to the sub-HDR content. It also forms the supports quality video playback on an ample variation of screen sizes.

YouTube videos in HDR can be seen on the iPhone X for iOS users. This feature does not yet begin to be working on the newest iPad Pro models. Youtube has several HDR-supported videos on its site, with channels like The HDR Channel giving videos for you to view in HDR on iOS. Making sure of the quality of playback find a video to play, then by hitting anyplace on the video, touch the three dots in the top right-hand corner of the screen, tap “Quality,” and then make sure it reads 1080p60 HDR. 

Apple launched HDR support last time with the “Super Retina” display in the iPhone X, which grew the first HDR OLED display included into one of Apple’s smartphones. Company also records the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus as promoting HDR. But the displays for them are not the identical as the Super Retina display on iPhone X. So any HDR content presented on the 8 or 8 Plus isn’t really HDR.

Although YouTube newly updated its Apple TV app and recorded a few videos as “4K,” the app still has yet to hold true 4K. While seeing aspects of a video, the highest feasible resolution is still listed as 1920 x 1080, while the 4K resolution is 3840 x 2160.
