Netflix teased this update earlier, and now it has delivered full support for the iPhone 5‘s larger screen and new aspect ratio. It’s a change that means users get access to an improved browsing experience, more content on menu screens visible at once, and also fullscreen playback of videos in 16:9 format, instead of presenting them letterboxed.
This is probably an update that many Netflix users who upgraded to iPhone 5 were probably looking forward to, as one of the main advantages of the screen changes on the device comes with making it better for viewing movies and other video content.
Netflix also touts an improved overall experience, which changes to browsing and searching as well as video viewing. This is a must-have update for anyone who’s looking to get the most out of their iPhone 5.
