There are many tweaks to disable ads in the YouTube app and add some useful features like Picture-in-Picture, background playback, and uYou tweak offers this and more for both jailbroken and non-jailbreak devices running iOS 13, iOS 14, iOS 15, and iOS 16.

What is uYou?

uYou is a tweak for the official App Store YouTube app that offers a multitude of useful features to enhance your video playback experience. Originally intended for jailbroken devices, the developer has also made available an uYou IPA file for non-jailbroken devices.

After installation, the uYou tweak seamlessly integrates with the stock YouTube app and introduces a new icon button in the dock navigation bar. By clicking on this icon, you can conveniently access all the tweak settings and enjoy the ability to download both video and audio files from YouTube for offline access, completely free of charge. Notably, this tweak is compatible with YouTube 16.30.2 and later. uYou IPA comes with prepackaged YouTube app.

uYou tweak offers a wealth of useful features to enhance your YouTube experience. With uYou, you can remove pesky YouTube ads, enable background playback for videos, and even download videos, audio, and shorts for offline viewing – including support for 4K resolution. Additionally, uYou also enables you to play videos in PiP (Picture-in-Picture) mode.

Moreover, the uYou tweak extends its support to encompass all YouTube formats, including MP4 and WebM, and all resolutions, ranging from 144p up to 4K. Additionally, it accommodates all frame rates – whether you prefer 30fps, 50fps, or 60fps. uYou also allows you to play saved media within a custom player with background playback capabilities, and includes a mini-player.

uYou's comprehensive feature set includes integrated scrubbing and playback controls accessible directly from the Control Center, as well as the ability to share and export saved videos to your Camera Roll or any other app. It also offers playback speed controls and gesture controls for videos, enabling you to swipe left or right to adjust the volume, brightness, or seek position with ease. All those features make uYou the best YouTube tweak for iOS.

To download a YouTube video using uYou, simply copy the video's link and paste it into the uYou settings tab. Alternatively, you can tap on the three dots icon next to the video's title and select the uYou option. The tweak will then present all available resolutions of the video for download.

In addition, uYou provides you with the flexibility to personalize your YouTube app to your liking. Within the tweak settings, you can tailor the default download quality, PiP quality, and playlist quality (e.g., audio-only). Moreover, you can choose the video quality for when you're using Wi-Fi or cellular data, and even designate a specific folder location for your downloaded files.

Moreover, uYou offers various other customizations to personalize your YouTube experience. You can choose your preferred startup page, define gesture controls for functions like opening PiP mode, entering full screen, casting video, and enabling playback controls.

Additionally, you have the option to manage the visibility of all buttons displayed under the video player – including the share, report, save, dislike, download, and live chat buttons, among others. Furthermore, uYou allows you to hide other elements of the YouTube app interface, such as navigation bar tabs and recording tabs, to tailor the app to your preferences.

Furthermore, the developer has also included several useful toggles in the “Other Settings” section. These toggles allow you to remove YouTube ads, enable background playback, disable age restrictions, activate iPad layout, disable video autoplay, disable auto-caption, disable video pause, and remove the shorts section from your YouTube Home screen.

From the settings pane, @MiRO92 included also quick actions to open the YouTube video download folder in Filza, and clear all active downloads and downloaded files. uYou can automatically check for tweak updates, so you will always run the latest version of the tweak.

Additionally, uYou provides options to configure the sensitivity and speed of gesture controls activation. Moreover, the tweak supports migration from other jailbreak tweaks, such as Cercube and DLEasy. With just a tap of a button, you can easily move all of your downloads into uYou, ensuring a seamless transition.

uYou tweak can be installed on any modern jailbreak through the private repository, but you can also install the YouTube app with preinstalled uYou tweak on any non-jailbroken device through Sideloadly or AltStore. There is also available a modified version of the tweak called uYou+ with additional features like iSponsorBlock and mainly made for non-jailbroken users.

When you need more privacy watching YouTube videos, there is an app like Yattee for iOS based on Piped or Invidious. Watch your favorite videos and stay anonymous without prying eyes watching. Yattee does not use official YouTube APIs, and it blocks all tracking data.

Although uYou tweak was not released as an open-source project, if you are interested in developing similar tweaks, you can explore the uYouPlus project on the GitHub repository. There, you can find the source code for some tweaks integrated into uYou, providing valuable insights for your own projects. uYou+ is a modified version of uYou with additional features.
