Apple iPhone X Gets YouTube HDR Support

Google Updates YouTube with HDR Playback for iPhone

While YouTube has many HDR-supported videos present on its site, as well as some dedicated channels like The HDR Channel which provides videos to watch in HDR on iOS.

Owners of the iPhone X can now enjoy HDR YouTube videos on their flashly smartphones after the feature rolled out quietly to the handset. Your iPhone should automatically switch over to HDR when streaming a compatible video. However, it did not include iOS at the time.

YouTube hasn't made any official announcement, but a Reddit post and tweets suggest that the feature is now rolling out widely to iPhone X users.

You should do this step while playing a video and select the suitable quality. As MacRumors points out, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus do support HDR but they are a different breed compared to the iPhone X's Super Retina HDR, so the experience will be different if and when support does arrive.

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are also said to support HDR 10 content too, but Apple told Mashable that the display doesn't actually support the display tech natively. Select films on the iTunes Movies Store support 4K, HDR10 and Dolby Vision when paired with Apple TV 4K. It's worth noting that although YouTube's app on Apple TV lists a few videos as "4K", it still lacks supports for true 4K quality. However, the maximum resolution offered by these videos is 1920x1080 pixels and the service is yet to roll out true 4K quality video which have a resolution of 3840x2160 pixels.

The Apple iPhone X was launched in November, last year. On the front, the phone has a 7MP FaceTime HD camera. Additionally, it also boasts an AR-based feature named Animoji, which enables users to create animated emojis with their facial expressions and then share it with their friends.
