IPhone X finally gains compatibility with YouTube HDR

IPhone X finally gains compatibility with YouTube HDR

Owners of the iPhone X can now enjoy HDR YouTube videos on their flashly smartphones after the feature rolled out quietly to the handset. HDR videos are considered to be more realistic with richer details.

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.

The iPhone X is not the only Apple device using a HDR-enabled screen, but the newest iPad Guru versions do not seem to have been granted the exact same treatment from YouTube only yet.

YouTube HDR videos explained Google had unveiled HDR videos support at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2016. But there's a downside: there isn't an terrible lot of creator-based content available in the standard - most YouTubers upload in either Full HD or 4K. To access the feature, tap on the three dots on the top right of the display while playing a YouTube video, and then tap on Quality. "The most reliable way to properly record the metadata is to export from a supported application", explains Google on its help page. "YouTube will detect the HDR metadata and process it, producing HDR transcodes for HDR devices and an SDR downconversion for other devices". Your iPhone should automatically switch over to HDR when streaming a compatible video.
