HDR support on iOS is rather limited, with Netflix’s site indicating that only the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X support the video standard. Meanwhile, The Verge adds that the newest 10.5-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models also support HDR.

Finding HDR content on Netflix is pretty easy; you can simply search “HDR” and see a host of titles available, including Netflix Originals and various other films and documentaries.

The Apple TV 4K also supports HDR and 4K content from Netflix, so it shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise that the latest iOS devices now support the standard as well. This will ensure that users across the iOS ecosystem get the highest quality possible.

Netflix for iOS is available on the App Store. The company notes that a “premium subscription” is required for HDR streaming and it recommends a 25mbps internet connection as well.
