Netflix update brings support for 1080p video on the iPhone 6 Plus and more

November 11, 2014

The Netflix app for iOS devices has just received a nice update that is sure to please iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners.

Version 7.0, along with bringing support for all iOS 8 devices, is now optimized for both of Apple’s newest handsets. That means text, and more importantly video, will now be sharp and clear.

An extra-added treat for iPhone 6 Plus users, the app can now stream true 1080p video to your handset –  as long as you’re near a strong Wi-Fi connection. That’s great news for video junkies.

Finally, the update contains unspecified improvements with Google’s Chromecast streaming media device.

Back in September, the Netflix app added a nice social feature. Using Facebook, the recommendation feature allows users to recommend specific movies or shows that friends should watch.

A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, the Netflix app can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. Streaming plans start at $7.99 per month.
