Apple TV + will support both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos

With the “battle of the HDR” taking place right now between Dolby Vision and HDR10 +, there is a lot of curiosity to know which of the two versions the new Apple TV + service will support. With less than a month to go, schedule for November 1, 2019, Apple has finally unveiled it.

Beyond the HDR10 support that ensures compatibility with most devices that support HDR, Apple TV + will offer movies and TV series in Dolby Vision.

Exclusive support for Dolby Vision means that those in possession of a Samsung Smart TV will not be able to benefit from the highest quality (Samsung is historically the first promoter of HDR10 +). On the other hand, anyone with:

  • iPhone 8 or later
  • iPad Pro 12.9 (3rd generation)
  • iPad Pro (11 inch)
  • iPad Pro 12.9 (2nd generation)
  • iPad Pro (10.5 inches)
  • Apple TV 4K
  • Macs launched from 2018 onwards with 4K display
  • iMac Pro
  • Smart TV Sony and LG

In addition to the HDR, Apple also announced that most of the video content of the service will also support Dolby Atmos audio. Unfortunately, Apple did not specify whether this will be done only for audio in English or for all the various dubbings.

In this case, the compatible devices are:

  • Macs launched from 2018 onwards
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max
  • iPad Pro 12.9 (3rd generation)
  • iPad Pro 11 (3rd generation)
  • Apple TV 4K
