While it may not be as great as the new season of “Orange Is The New Black,” the Netflix app for iOS devices has just been updated to version 6.0. The biggest change, along with the slightly revamped UI, is the new app icon that is much easier to see. In the release notes, Netflix also says that the update brings faster startup for video playback, which is always welcomed. The Apple TV version of the app also received a minor update with the new icon and slight design changes. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Netflix can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. Due to a recent price hike, new customers will pay $8.99 per month to access the streaming video library ($7.99 for one screen only and only in SD). The increase won’t hit current customers until sometime in 2016. And if you can’t get enough of “Orange Is The New Black,” Netflix recently unveiled the standalone Orange is the New App iPhone app. With OITNA, users can customize cards featuring photos of the cast.
