Apple Enables iTunes HDR for iPad Pro

Apple said in June that its new iPad Pro models would support HDR and it is now making UltraHD HDR content available on the iTunes store, so that the content can be played back (at 1080P because the displays on the iPads are not UltraHD) but with support for HDR10 or Dolby Vision. To get the HDR, the new iOS 11 needs to be installed on the tablets – and once this is done, HDR content becomes available on iTunes.

Netflix has also modified its list of supported devices to allow the replay of HDR content on Apple devices to add iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the 2-gen iPad Pro models. It also supports HDR now on its tvOS app.

Analyst Comment

The iPads have peak brightness of 600 cd/m² so they should give a pretty good image on these tablets. If any of our readers have tried it, we’d be happy to hear about it. (BR)
