HDR Movies Purchased via Apple have always played back fine in HDR on my 12.9 inch M1 iPad Pro. But last night I went to play one after doing the latest update 15.2.1 and now none of those HDR films play back in HDR.

HDR still works fine on YouTube and any HDR footage that I have shot plays back fine, just nothing from the Apple TV app.

Anyone else having this issue? Not sure if the update has caused this or it is just coincidental as I’ve not watch a HDR film from Apple TV for a few weeks.

I could never really tell videos were in HDR except for when I watched Cowboy Bebop (live action) on Netflix. Then again, I watch mostly non-HDR enabled content. Lol.
