How to Disable HDR Video Downloads on iPhone X, iPhone 8, and 8 Plus

There is a quick way you can turn off HDR video downloads on your iPhone X, iPhone 8, and 8 Plus to prevent large videos from consuming a lot of space on your device.

I’m a great fan of watching HDR movies on the 4K TVs or 4K monitors. Thanks to broad luminance range as well as wider color gamut, HDR videos offer immersive viewing experience. However, I don’t like to watch high-dynamic range videos on iPhones for a couple of main reasons.

The first, the device is still not capable of getting the best of 4K content and the other; I don’t want the huge Dolby Vision or HDR10 files to clutter my device. Hence, I prefer to disable HDR videos on iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X.

If you no longer want those powerful HDR videos on your device to prevent the precious storage from being quickly consumed, jump over to keep them away. Should you ever happen to change your mind and wished to enjoy them again, you can always let them in.
