You can now stream HDR videos hosted on YouTube on the iPhone X. The HDR Channel includes videos that can be viewed in HDR on iOS.

The YouTube app now supports HDR video streaming on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The feature kicks in automatically, so no app update is necessary.

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. HDR videos offer a higher range of colours and brightness compared to non-HDR content, and this format is also suitable for a wide array of screen sizes.

It is certainly only a matter of time, however, so in the event that you decide to possess one of the most recent iPad Experts you're going to want to keep your eye on the "Quality" setting at the program.

Apple debuted HDR support with the "Super Retina" display a year ago in the iPhone X that went on becoming the world's first Apple smartphone to be incorporated with HDR OLED display. Even though iPhone 8 series provides support for HDR 10, you have to make use of the dithering technology to deliver quality videos.

The iTunes Movies Store on Apple TV 4K also supports 4K, HDR10, and Dolby Vision for a handful of movies when plugged with a 4K compatible TV.

The quality of YouTube videos is all set to improve for the iPhone X users. It features a 5.8-inch Super Retina display at 1125×2436 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Qi charger systems also support the phone.
