The YouTube App in iOS devices has acquired a major update. iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus, each built with 5.5 inch screens, now grant users to watch videos with stunning 1440p resolutions.

Along with this update, iPhone models with smaller screens, such as iPhone 5 and iPhone SE, with screen sizes of 4 inches and 4.7 inches respectively, can now experience 1080p videos both in FHD and QHD resolutions.

The iPhone 6, 6s and 7, made with 4.7-inch screens, can now play videos on YouTube app at a 1440p resolution. On the other hand, the iPhone SE and other iPhones with 4-inch displays will now display videos with 1080p resolutions.

The YouTube App Update 11.49 comes with a size of 106MB. Only iOS 8.0 users are compatible with the new update, which is good for devices such as the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Those who seek crystal-clear high definition quality can have a great time streaming videos with the quality up to 1080p. Along with the 11.49 update, and even if the resolution of the iPhone is less than FHD, users can still appreciate watching QHD videos using YouTube. When it comes to iPad models, YouTube video resolutions are still the same at 720p regardless of what the resolution display is.

All 60fps videos from YouTube can still only be played up to the 1080p resolution, unlike the Android version where the 60fps videos can be played at a 1440p resolution. It is important to note that this update will only work when it is connected via Wi-Fi and not on a mobile data network.
