YouTube 11.0.6 for iOS iPad screenshot 001

Google on Tuesday issued a small update to its YouTube client in the App Store, adding support for the iPad Pro’s 12.9-inch 2,732-by-2,048 pixel resolution screen, bringing the app’s version number to 11.0.6.

Unfortunately, advanced iPad-only features provided by iOS 9 are not yet supported in YouTube for iOS, namely the new Slide Over and Split View multitasking modes.

This edition of YouTube also fixed a bug that caused the keyboard to freeze while commenting and another one which caused the app to crash after adding a Google or YouTube account on iOS 7.


YouTube requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with iOS 7.0 or later.

The app is localized in English, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Cambodian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kazakh, Korean, Laotian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Mongolian, Norwegian, Norwegian Bokmål, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Simplified Chinese, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Traditional Chinese, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.

    Still no landscape support for the iPhone 6S Plus

    Wait, the official YouTube app doesn’t have PiP??

      Useless Google…get with the times. Why must I use a 3rd party App to use PiP?!

      Nope. There are a few third party apps (ProTube,YouPlayer, Tubex) which do offer this Slide Over/Split View, Picture in Picture (PiP) and even have other great features (play audio in background, remove ads – ProTube only). CornerTube, Moldavite only offer Picture in Picture (PiP).

      My favorite is definitely ProTube.
