YouTube background iPhone app: how to do it?
To date, the only working (and free) way to have the YouTube app in the background on the iPhone is to download and install the alternative YouTube++ app.
What is YouTube++?
It is a modified version of YouTube that adds many fantastic features to the original app, among which I point out the possibility of:
- use YouTube in the background and with the screen off
- block, hide and remove advertising from YouTube
- better and more conveniently control video playback (playback speed, fast forward or fast reverse ..)
- download videos from YouTube
and so much more.
In short, YouTube++ exceeds all the limits of the original app, offering many very useful and convenient features to make the most of the Google video sharing portal.
Unfortunately YouTube ++ is not found on the App Store, so you will have to install it manually on your iPhone.
How to install YouTube ++ on iPhone?
Simple, read our detailed guide:
Jailbreak is not needed, you do not invalidate the guarantee of your smartphone and the procedure is extremely simple and fast. It’s free!
Only recommendation: to install YouTube ++, you must first remove the original YouTube app from your iPhone.

As promised, after installing this fantastic app, you will be free to listen to YouTube in the background iPhone: a function that many require loudly, but that today only YouTube Premium subscribers can take advantage of.

As mentioned above, YouTube ++ also allows you to download videos from YouTube to your iPhone in one click.
How to do? Simple:
