iTunes bug inflicting many customers’ 4K titles to be downgraded to HD

Back in 2017, Apple TV 4K customers cheered when chosen movies of their iTunes libraries began receiving Ultra HD upgrades at no further price.

Now, it seems the alternative is occurring (albeit unintentionally), with each bought and unpurchased 4K films being downgraded to HD because of an alleged bug, as reported by 9to5Mac.

Originally believed to be a difficulty solely affecting Warner Bros. titles, the record of downgraded films has since prolonged to productions from different studios, together with MGM, Columbia, Twentieth Century Fox and extra. 

One person has compiled an inventory of downgraded titles over on’s forums, which incorporates the next:

  • 22 Jump Street (2014)
  • About Last Night
  • Aloha (2015)
  • American Sniper
  • Annie (2014)
  • Batman vs. Superman
  • The Brothers Grimsby (2016)
  • The Equalizer (2014)
  • Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
  • Ghostbusters II (1989)
  • Goosebumps (2015)

  • Taxi Driver (1976)

  • The Walk (2015)
  • X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

Thankfully, it seems that Apple is already rectifying the state of affairs, with some customers on Twitter reporting that a number of titles have returned to their full 4K Ultra HD resolutions, though that hasn’t occurred for everybody.

If you’ve got seen that your 4K purchases have all of the sudden regressed to HD, your finest guess is to attend it out because it seems to be like the issue is simply non permanent.
