youtube app iPhone 6 update

Google’s YouTube app for iOS has just been updated to support the larger screen sizes of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This update, which brings the app to version 2.13, also brings along a few bug fixes and stability improvements.

YouTube’s app is one of Google most popular iOS apps to have been recently updated. Gmail and Chrome were also updated in the past couple of weeks to support iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The changelog for this update is as follow:

Now updated for iPhone 6. Includes bug fixes to:

  • Prevent the status bar from overlapping the UI
  • Address keyboard orientation issues
  • Make scrubbing more responsive
  • Show all playlists when adding videos

Of course, the biggest feature is the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus support.

YouTube app is available as a free download from the App Store.

Thanks Matthew!

    Am I the only one around here that still uses WebApp vs official app?

      I use YouTube in Safari only when I’m told the video is not available on a mobile device.

      • Okitavio

        And you can watch desktop only videos in Safari? Last time I checked…

    Nope, it get worse on my iPad….

    • Same on my iPad 3 running iOS 8.1 beta too. It looks fugly. Luckily for me I only occasionally use the YouTube app so will hopefully not receive a constant urge to gouge my eyes out for looking at such a terrible application.

    Can’t wait for all the apps to be updated… I’m tried of the screen in grandma mode!

    YouTube app on iOS has got to be the worst app on the store. Never plays videos (mobile error) and videos take years to buffer (yes on high speed internet)

    Possibly due to Apple cutting ties with them in iOS 5

      iOS 6*

      Its Googles fault. The app is the same sh!t as the site. Comments don’t show up most of the time, video takes forever to buffer on HD, its filled with bugs …etc…

    About time. Also times really change. 2 years ago people thought 4 inches were large and now we have phones with 6+ inches.

    My Ipad is wacked out though!! Landscape mode is not utilizing the middle of the screen for me 2 inches of blank space.

    MXTube download and view Youtube videos trust me worth it!!
