Netflix app updated with support for 3D Touch, iPad Pro and more

By , Feb 24, 2016


Netflix on Wednesday pushed out an update for its iOS client, bringing the app to version 8.0. The release is significant in that it features a number of improvements, including a better Kids experience on iPad and new Post-Play experience on iPhone.

Version 8.0 also features native support for Apple’s just released iPad Pro, meaning the layout has been optimized for the tablet’s 12.9-inch screen to show more content per screen, as well as support for 3D Touch actions like Peek and Pop within the app.

What’s New in Version 8.0.0

  • Post-Play experience (episode auto-play/recommendations) now on iPhone
  • iPad Pro optimized layout
  • 3D Touch support
  • Improved Kids experience on iPad
  • Arabic support for devices running iOS 9 and later
  • Performance improvements

You can download Netflix from the App Store for free, but you’ll have to pay $10 per month for the service.

    No 3D Touch support. I just updated Netflix.

    • Same here lol. True I have an iPhone 6 but with all the 3d Touch tweaks it would have still worked if the app had support.

      There definitely is on mine. There’s a very helpful peek and pop when you press on a movie title, the peek shows a description of the movie.

      It’s not on the app icon, it’s inside the app on the actual tv shows/ movies cover art.

    Just released iPad Pro.

    People I didn’t make the mistake this time.

    3D Touch is nowhere to be found in this update…

    There is 3D Touch elements in the update. It’s more of the peek and pop actions in the app itself similar to what Instagram has implemented.
