HDR10+ support canceled for the Apple TV app on iOS 16 and macOS Ventura?

Apple originally announced that the Apple TV app would feature HDR10+ support with iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS Ventura. But the manufacturer has updated its site and removed the mention on each page of operating systems.

Here is what we could read so far:

HDR10+ support
The latest generation of high dynamic range technology is now supported by the Apple TV app.

Why this withdrawal? This is not yet specified, Apple having taken care of discreetly removing the mention without warning anyone. Admittedly, the situation can still evolve between now and the final version which will arrive in the fall (normally in September for iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, and October or November for macOS Ventura). But the fact that the withdrawal of the mention is done now is not necessarily good news. As a reminder, Apple announced iOS 16/iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura on Monday during the WWDC 2022 opening keynote.

For those who don’t know, HDR10+ is an evolution of HDR10. This system competes with Dolby Vision and supports the dynamic metadata of a video stream. Few television manufacturers offer its support, it is mainly found at Samsung and Panasonic. The rest of the market is more interested in Dolby Vision.
