YouTube Has Added HDR Support For iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro Lineup

With Apple’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro now in the market and iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max arriving this week, Google and YouTube have today rolled out an update to the video streaming app that adds support for HDR.

While YouTube has supported HDR on iPhones since the iPhone X back in 2017, the iOS app needs to be updated to support new hardware whenever it arrives.

That’s something that happened today, giving new iPhone owners the very best video streaming experience they can get.

Of course, HDR videos aren’t plentiful on YouTube because the workflow to get them there is less than ideal. But with Apple’s new iPhones also recording video in HDR, that’s something we’re expecting to change soon enough. For now though, you can find plenty of demo reels that show off HDR and 4K footage at its very best.

Apple will complete its iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro lineup when the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max ship this coming Friday. Anyone wanting to order one now might have to wait a little while to take delivery, however, depending on which color and storage combination they happen to be interested in.
