YouTube now properly displays vertical videos on iOS
 

 
image

It feels like it should have been here ages ago, but YouTube has finally updated its iOS app so that everyone can view vertical videos as they were meant to be seen: in full screen, rather than turned sideways with black bars on the sides. YouTube announced plans to introduce this feature back in August, and some users have already had it activated. But as of this week, itís being enabled for everyone.

As easy as it is to hate on vertical video, vertical video just looks good on a phone ó itís the way your phone is meant to be held, and it takes up every inch of screen space. With more and more vertical video being uploaded to YouTube, it only makes sense for the app to get updated to display things properly (especially since this feature has been on Android for two years now).

One weird caveat: youíre likely to stumble across vertical videos that wonít go full screen, like this Selena Gomez music video. It turns out, there are a lot of ďverticalĒ videos on YouTube that are actually encoded with black bars on the sides, meaning theyíre technically landscape videos. Most of the vertical videos Iíve tried to play so far have been this way, which means they end up playing back in landscape. Hopefully, videos will stop being uploaded this way now that YouTube fully supports vertical playback. But for now, expect there to still be a confusing transition period.

Didn't even peep lol

A bit off topic but I wonder Apple forces videos to take up the entire screen ��. Of course they probably did some research behind it but it's a bit annoying. A brother needs split screen functionality as well.

See you speaking on sh*t you donít know with you disrespectful a.ss. Apple isnít in charge of the apps, the companies have to alter them. iPhone X user bi*ch, and all the apps donít support the larger screen. So I found out why sh*thead, YouTube has nothing to do with apples money which is why they never fixed it for them as*hole
