Netflix on the Apple iPhone

Just the other day, Netflix released an update for Android smartphones that included the new UI for the green robot. Now, the streaming video app is updating its app for the Apple iPhone 6. The update allows Netflix to support iOS 6 and also allows videos to fit perfectly in the Apple iPhone 5's wider screen. Wait! Stop! Halt! The Apple iPhone 5 doesn't have a wider screen than its predecessors! Well, it does when you are holding it in landscape mode like you have to when watching a video from Netflix.

Slowly but surely, developers are getting around to updating their apps to fit the new screen dimensions of the 6th generation of the Apple iPhone. Yesterday, Instagram was updated and some iOS games have also been reworked to fir the new 4 inch screen of the device. Getting back to Netflix, version 2.4 also makes it easier to search and browse for movies and television shows.

The updated Netflix app is now available at the App Store.

There's a typo. It's actually "Apple iPhone 5" not "Apple iPhone 6" unless you want to write "Apple iPhone 6th generation" but that would confuse people.

So suggest just using iPhone 5.

Alan, are you going to write an article for every app that adapts to the wider screen?
