The Apple TV application, HDR10 compatible, the best ally of Samsung TVs?

According to numerous feedback from American and Spanish colleagues, an update to the Apple TV+ application now allows HDR10+ support for TV+ titles and iTunes movies.

In addition to the new Apple TV 2022 box, one of the new features of which is HDR10+ compatibility (see our News Apple TV 4K news: A15 Bionic chip, HDR10+ and up to 128 GB of storage), it's the turn of the Apple TV+ application to support this HDR technology competing with HDR Dolby Vision.

HDR10+ already available on Apple TV+ Spain, USA and UK

As a reminder, we announced this compatibility as early as June in our columns (see our news (Update) The Apple TV application now compatible with HDR10+) following an official communication from Apple on the subject during WWDC 2022 (Apple Worldwide Developers Conference), before indicating that the Cupertino company had finally erased the HDR10 + mention on its site. Today, it's official, the application supports HDR10+ and according to our Spanish colleagues from the site, all (or almost) of the Apple TV+ catalog is available in HDR10+ (see photo below with HDR10+ mention on Picture or Pelicula mode, click to zoom). Returns are in the same vein from the United States and the United Kingdom via members of the and sites. Thus, the film Top Gun: Maverick or the Ted Lasso series can be viewed in HDR10+. There is no doubt that this update will soon affect France (not having an HDR10+ TV available at the time of writing these lines, we have not yet been able to verify its availability/unavailability in France).

HDR10+ on Apple TV+, great news for Samsung Smart TVs

Good news for all owners of HDR10+ compatible televisions of course, but especially for those who use a Samsung Smart TV. Deprived of the Dolby Vision HDR offered on the vast majority of Apple TV+ content, they will now be able to use an HDR process with dynamic metadata competing with Dolby Vision HDR, for a magnified image quality.
