YouTube rolls out HDR support for iPhone X

YouTube rolls out HDR support for iPhone X”

YouTube has reportedly started rolling out support for high dynamic range (HDR) video content for iPhone X. That technique has been applied to video as well and in recent years we've seen seeing TVs with support for HDR. HDR videos are considered to be more realistic with richer details. But if you have a smaller iPhone 8, the 720p60 HDR option should suffice as well. In lieu of this, the benefits of an HDR video are not immediately noticeable.

It's also worth noting, as per The Verge, that since HDR is about delivering improved brightness, colour and contrast, the content doesn't have to be in Full HD (1080p) - the standard is also supported at lower resolutions, like 480p. You can check the support by tapping on the Settings button and then tap on Quality to change the resolution.

The HDR videos are already available for iPhone X via Netflix. The phone was also the company's first device to feature HDR OLED display. The difference in quality is significantly noticeable side by side when compared to an iPhone with LCD panel.

Best of all, there's no need to fire up the App Store to install a new version of the YouTube application; the upgrade takes place in the background.

With YouTube now supporting HDR on the iPhone, it means that iPhone X users will be able to enjoy those contrasty colors that Android users have been enjoying for a while now.

YouTube HDR videos explained Google had unveiled HDR videos support at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2016. What are your thoughts on the YouTube for iOS update?
