Netflix has updated their iOS app today to bring stability improvements and bug fixes, along with adding the company’s latest “N” branding icon, which made its way into the company’s Twitter and Facebook profiles last week.
The new “N” icon will not replace the company’s Netflix logo, as a spokesperson told CNBC “We are introducing a new element into our branding with an N icon. The current Netflix logo will still remain, and the icon will start to be incorporated into our mobile apps along with other product integrations in the near future.”
On social media, the company says the new icon is a “creative element to live with our logo.”
@nikhilwad Not a new logo! The N is an icon and a new creative element to live with our logo. The current Netflix logo is here to stay 🙂

Netflix is set to debut offline viewing, with a recent report citing it could debut as soon as this year.
