YouTube enables HDR support for iPhone Xs and Xs Max

The latest update for the YouTube app on iOS now lets iPhone Xs and Xs Max users watch videos in HDR. Last year’s iPhone X had this feature already, but it seems an update was needed for the new iPhones. The downside is videos are still capped at 1080p, which means still no 2K or 4K viewing for you. This restriction isn’t just for the phones, but it also applies to the iPad, Apple TV, and Mac, if you use Safari. But it’s still great experience to watch Full HD videos in HDR and at least now you can enjoy that on those new edge-to-edge Super Retina displays.

Warner Bros will support new Samsung-led HDR10+ standard

You may or may not have heard of the newest High Dynamic Range (HDR) standard to come out in the past year. But now its three founding companies—Samsung, Panasonic, and 20th Century Fox—just shared some updates on HDR10+ and what we can expect from the platform. This Dolby Vision competitor is said to soon make its way to “content companies, ultra-high definition TVs, Blu-ray disc players/recorders and set-top box manufacturers, as well as SoC vendors.” Moving forward, the three companies will be incorporating the standard in “all future Ultra HD movie releases, selected TVs, Ultra HD Blu-ray player/recorders, and other products.” And unlike its Dolby counterpart, Samsung, in a press release, emphasizes that using HDR10+ will be royalty-free and will only require a “nominal annual administration fee” to use the standard. Updates about the new format will be put up on this new site.

One of the bigger announcements, though, is that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be enabling this dynamic metadata solution to its content for Samsung, Panasonic and other HDR10+ capable 4K HDR TVs. Amazon Prime Video already supports the standard with its Prime Video HDR library already offering HDR10+ and can be seen on Prime Originals like The Grand Tour, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Jean-Claude Van Johnson, The Tick and The Man in the High Castle.

YouTube maxes out HDR viewing on mobile app to 1080p

While it was limited to a handful of devices, Google added the ability to play HDR content to its Android app a couple of months back. And even if these devices were more on the powerful side of the spectrum, some have noticed performance issues once videos pushed to 1440p or above—the clips stuttered with dropped frames. To remedy the situation, YouTube has opted to take out these options. Now, HDR maxes out at 1080p so you can enjoy the content without the problems.

Review: Apple TV 4K

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Apple is finally bringing the Apple TV into the 4K HDR present, making their erstwhile 'hobby' and set-top box compatible with the latest Ultra HD and 4K capable TVs.

The latest update finally gives the Apple TV parity with rival devices like the Roku 4, Chromecast Ultra and Amazon Fire TV. This means that videos coming from the Apple TV will show up in full 4K resolution, and if they are compatible with the HDR (High Dynamic Range) standard, will show the added detail and saturation.
