Watching videos via the YouTube app is one of the most popular things to do on an iPhone or iPad. The same goes for Android devices, only those users can improve their experience by downloading the YouTube Vanced application. Is there a YouTube Vanced iOS app available to install, though? Here’s the latest on improving YouTube for iOS without jailbreaking.
Is YouTube Vanced available on iOS without jailbreaking? (2021)
YouTube Vanced is the same stock application that people know, only with several handy improvements. The most notable feature is adblocking, though it also includes a true AMOLED dark mode and much more. Owing to these improvements, many Android users can’t live without the app and many iPhone and iPad owners are seeking an equivalent.
YouTube Vanced is available on iOS but only through jailbreaking.
Although it is possible to get YouTube Vanced on iOS using third-party sites and applications, it isn’t recommended due to security concerns. Apple actively blocks the app and equivalents like Cercube and YT++ on its iOS platforms.
iOS users are best off sticking to the base YouTube application on iPhone and iPad. Although ads can be annoying, most are at least skippable. Even failing that, allowing adverts can help to support YT creators.
If dark mode is the main draw, rather than an adblocker, ensure that the built-in dark mode for the official iOS YouTube app is enabled.
How to enable dark mode in the YouTube iOS app
- Open the YouTube application on iPhone or iPad.
- Tap the profile picture in the top right.
- Scroll down and tap the “Settings” option.
- Enable the “Dark theme” setting.
Of course, it’s also possible to swipe down from the top right of the screen and adjust the display brightness on a system level.
