What is YTMusicUltimate?

YTMusicUltimate is a free tweak that enables premium features such as background playback and removing ads in the stock YouTube Music installed from the App Store. The tweak was created in mind for jailbroken devices, but you can also sideload the IPA on iOS 13 - iOS 15.

Once the YTMusicUltimate tweak is installed, it integrates into the YouTube Music app and adds a dedicated preference pane to the Account section. From here, you can enable YouTube Music premium features for free, activate the OLED Dark theme, and OLDE Dark Keyboard.

YTMusicUltimate tweak is really simple to use and all options are enabled when the tweak is installed. You can't specify which premium features should be enabled because everything is hidden behind one toggle. Optionally, you can activate the dark them for the app.
