Today, Google finally pushed out an update to the YouTube app, specifically for the iPad Pro. Since the iPad Pro’s launch, users were only able to use the YouTube app for the iPad’s resolution.
This means the iPad Pro was displaying the same amount of pixels as the iPad Air, therefore stretching all the pixels and made it rather unpleasant to navigate YouTube and watch videos.
This update brings the YouTube to the iPad pro in its native resolution of 2732 x 2048px. It also squashes a few bugs but has not yet been updated to support the iPad Pro’s Split View or Picture-in-Picture mode.
If you don’t want to use the official YouTube app or need to view YouTube videos in Split View while you write a research paper, there are a bunch of third-party apps that can play YouTube videos and support Split View and Picture-in-Picture.
The iPad Pro is a 12.9 inch Apple tablet with available keyboard attachment running Apple’s mobile iOS starting at $799 in the US.
