Netflix has announced the addition of the upcoming iPhone X and Apple’s iPad Pro to the streaming service’s list of supported devices that can stream HDR-enabled content. These devices are the first from Apple to have this capability, so I’m sure even more will be added in the future. The devices join the Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, Note 8, LG V30Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ PremiumLG G6, Chromecast Ultra, and Nvidia Shield and Shield Pro.

To stream HDR content on the V30 or Note 8, you’ll have to be subscribed to Netflix’s highest-paid plan which costs $11.99/month. Once you’re subscribed, just sign into the latest version of the Netflix app for iOS. Currently, only limited shows like Dare DevilHouse of Cards, and Marco Polo are streaming in HDR, so your High Dynamic Range library will likely be pretty small for the time being. Hopefully, in the near future, more content will be added to Netflix’s growing list.

It’s worth noting that while the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is capable of streaming HDR for anyone who buys it, users will need to own the 2017 second-edition 12.9-inch Pro in order to see high dynamic range content. Hopefully, you didn’t already put nearly $1,000 down on an iPad Pro just to find out you can’t watch the best content Netflix has to offer. I give my regards in advance if you did.
