YouTube Introduces HDR Support for iPhone X

YouTube, though they have had HDR content present across the platform since support was added in late 2016, have only just allowed for such content to be consumed on the iPhone X which has now been part of the iPhone line-up since  early November 2017.

The iPhone X inherited HDR support through the use of Samsung’s OLED display (the first to be used in an iPhone), although the iPhone 8 [plus] is listed also to support HDR, yet their screens will not in fact deliver true HDR. In comparison to lower resolution video, HDR means for a larger range of colours and higher luminance, all activated directly from the video player: simply tap on the 3 dots in the top right hand corner and then select the quality cog before selecting 1080p60 HDR.
If you own an iPhone X and would like to experience this new resolution supoort for yourself, here are some incredible HDR videos:
