VideoLAN has released a new version of its VLC for Mobile app that adds improved support for Apple's latest hardware and software.
The latest version also includes "full support" for 4K videos formatted in HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) which Apple has embraced to limit file sizes on ultra high-definition videos.
