Netflix gets iPad Retina Display update, HD streaming teased

By Updated on

The standout feature of Apple’s new iPad is clearly that stunning new Retina Display, which promises 4x the quality seen in its predecessor, the iPad 2. Due to the new quality available, the plethora of apps available now need to be updated in time so that consumers can enjoy their iPad apps with the same quality.

We’re pleased to say that the Netflix app for iPad has now been given an update, which will now see app given a makeover with all the movie icons and menus updated to Retina Display quality.

If you have the Netflix app already on your new iPad, you will have most likely installed the latest update already. If not though, you can simply go to the app store and install the app to check out the higher quality on offer – it does look rather nice.

Unfortunately though, Netflix still can’t offer HD video streaming on the iPad. When talking about the update to the iPad, a statement on the Netflix Twitter page teases that HD movies are still in development and that they will ‘follow later’. Some changes that we can tell you about though include general stability fixes and improvements to Airplay and VoiceOver, as noted by The Verge.

If you feel that the time is now right to explore Netflix movie streaming on your new iPad, you can head to the iTunes page here for further details. Considering that Netflix already allows 1080p streaming to Apple TV, you have to feel that it is only a matter of time until we see it on the iPad as well.

Are you a happy Netflix customer? Let us know what changes you would like to see in the next update, other than HD video streaming.
