If you want to play YouTube videos in the background while you're multitasking on your iPhone, you'll need to spend $ 11.99 a month privileging YouTube Premium. Not all of us can afford or justify such an issue, but if your iPhone is jailbroken, you can buy that coveted feature – and more – without a dime.
YouTube Tools by Justin Petkovic is a tweak that can be installed through Cydia, which allows you to play music in the background. In addition, when you use YouTube, you can remove age restrictions and block ads. And that's just the tip of the iceberg ̵
You must already have YouTube installed for the Tweak to unleash its magic, because that's not a separate app like YouTube ++. It does not work if you rely on your browser to access YouTube. Therefore, you must have the app installed. As you'll see below, accessing YouTube tools is not easier and easier.
Step 1: Install YouTube Tools
Open the Cydia app on your iPhone and tap the magnifying glass icon in the bottom right, then type "youtube tools" in the search box. Touch the result of the same name when you see it, and at the top right of tap Details on "Install" to continue installing the tweak.
On the confirmation page of YouTube Tool, tap on "Confirm" in the upper right corner of the screen. Optimization will now be downloaded to your device, so wait for the process to complete. Click "Restart SpringBoard" after restarting your iPhone and quitting YouTube Tools.
Now you can tweak YouTube's interface with newly-installed optimization. So open the Settings app and choose YouTube Tools. "From there you'll be greeted with a series of switches that you can turn on, starting with basic features such as" Play Background ", which allows background playback," No video ads "that disable ads in videos, and" No age restriction ", releasing the feature.
