uYou is a tweak that brings the most demanding features to the YouTube app to enhance the overall user experience when using the app.

What is uYouPlus?

uYouPlus is a third-party mod for the iOS YouTube app that adds many new features that are missing from the app, such as the ability to download videos, play videos using Picture-in-Picture mode, block ads, and more.

The tweak is built right into YouTube which means that once you install it, it is as if you are using the original YouTube app except with new features added to it.

The tweak can be installed in various ways. In this article, we’ll show you how to install it using AltStore, Cydia, or third-party app stores.

uYouPlus Features

  1. uYou: uYou has a ton of features that I can’t list them all. Visit here for more info!
  2. iSponsorBlock: Skips annoying sponsor ads inside videos. iSponsorBlock is based on SponsorBlock engine. Basically, this is the iOS version of the SponsorBlock extension.
  3. YouPiP: enable YouTube’s native PiP. More options are in YouTube Settings – General.
  4. YTUHD: unlock VP9 codec and in effect, enables video quality of 2K and 4K. You can enable/disable YTUHD in YouTube Settings – Video quality preferences.
  5. YTAutoFullScreen: autoplay videos at full screen.
  6. YTClassicVideoQuality: since YouTube v16.xx, you need one more step to change the video quality. YTClassicVideoQuality brings back the old video quality selector, which is a lot better than the new one.
  7. YTNoHoverCards: offer an option to enable/disable the annoying suggested videos show up at the end of the videos.
  8. YTNoCheckLocalNetwork: block the Local Network permission popup.
  9. YouRememberCaption: make YouTube remember your video caption setting (if not already).
  10. NoYTPremium: remove YouTube Premium upsells.
  11. YTSpeed: add 2.25, 2.5, 2.75, and 3x playback speed
  12. YTMiniplayerEnabler: enable Miniplayer for all YouTube videos.
  13. DontEatMyContent: prevent the notch/Dynamic Island from munching on 2:1 video content in YouTube.
  14. YTShortsProgress: always enable progress bar and scrubbing in YouTube Shorts (iPhone only).
  15. YTABConfig: allow user to control over YouTube A/B testing flags.
