We experimentally investigate the properties of hyperentangled states displaying simultaneous entanglement in multiple degrees of freedom and find that Bell tests beyond the standard Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt inequality can reveal a higher-dimensional nature in a device-independent way. Specifically, we show that hyperentangled states possess more than just simultaneous entanglement in separate degrees of freedom but also entanglement in a higher-dimensional Hilbert space. We also verify the steerability of hyperentangled quantum states by steering different photonic degrees of freedom.
