Apple supports H.265, but so far only in FaceTime on an iPhone 6. And we note that the unit’s video playback specs don’t mention H.265, so presumably users can’t stream or even play HEVC-encoded video outside of the FaceTime environment. We tried uploading an HEVC stream in the MP4 container to iPhone  11 Pro, but it wouldn’t load into iTunes. That is to say, iTunes doesn’t accept H.265 codec. If you stick with some H.265/HEVC files, you should find out an alternative way to import H.265/HEVC to iTunes. In this page, we will share a workaround to open and play H.265/HEVC in iTunes easily.
