Watch HDR YouTube videos on your iPhone X

Google Updates YouTube with HDR Playback for iPhone

YouTube has platforms like "The HDR Channel" that provides HDR videos for iOS. However, it did not include iOS at the time.

YouTube has added support for HDR video streaming on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, a little more than eight months after the feature arrived for select Android smartphones, including the Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8.

As of now, the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X can all stream HDR video on YouTube, albeit the available content might be limited. Colors also display more shades, and viewers generally describe HDR video as having more depth and realism. Even though iPhone 8 series provides support for HDR 10, you have to make use of the dithering technology to deliver quality videos.

While YouTube began rolling HDR content in back in 2016, Apple, on the other hand, debuted support for HDR content with its "Super Retina" display in iPhone X a year ago. On the iTunes Movies Store on Apple TV 4K, select films also support 4K, HDR10, and "Dolby Vision" when paired with compatible 4K television sets, the report added. 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. At the moment it seems that this is only applicable to the iPhone X as far as iPhones are concerned. The highlight of the iPhone X lies in its notch-design and Face ID recognition software that maps the user's face to unlock the phone.
