Disney movies are now available in 4K on Apple’s iTunes store

After years of being available at a maximum video quality of 1080p on Apple’s iTunes Store, Disney films can now be rented and purchased in 4K video quality. 9to5Mac noticed the change, which applies to the US and Canada as of today. Other countries will get access to the 4K versions from Apple by the end of this year.

Disney, Marvel, and Pixar content is all included. All told, there are over 80 Disney titles now available in 4K HDR on the iTunes Store. If you originally purchased one of these movies in 1080p from Apple, you should be automatically upgraded to the sharper 4K presentation at no extra cost.

Disney’s films have been offered in 4K on other platforms including Vudu, and if you purchased them there, you should now see that 4K quality carry over to Apple devices thanks to Movies Anywhere. (You can also watch them using the Apple TV app, which is available on numerous smart TVs.) Likewise, if you now buy a Disney title in 4K on iTunes, you should get that version on at least some other apps that support Movies Anywhere.

Aside from the uptick in resolution, many of these Disney movies on iTunes now also offer Dolby Vision HDR and Atmos surround sound. That puts the experience of renting or buying them from Apple on par with streaming those films through Disney Plus, which has offered a large collection of Disney / Marvel / Pixar movies in 4K HDR since launching last year.
