YouTube now supports HDR video on Apple’s latest iPhones .
YouTube has added support for HDR video playback on Apple’s iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus.&nbsp;YouTube has plenty of great demo material for seeing the improved picture for yourself: just search “HDR” and you’ll find no shortage of exotic scenery, cityscapes, food, animals, and other demo reel material. My iPhone switched over to HDR automatically once I started streaming a video, but you can also tap the icon with three vertical dots to manually enable it. Note that since it’s really all about color, brightness, and contrast, you don’t have to pick 1080p to enjoy HDR; it’s also supported at lower resolutions like 480p.
