The YouTube app for iOS was today given a small but significant update, adding support for the iPad Pro to improve video quality on Apple's newest tablet. Since the iPad Pro was released in November, people have complained about the poor video quality of YouTube videos within the app as the content was scaled up to match the iPad Pro's resolution.

Three months later, the app is finally getting the update it needs to make watching videos via the YouTube app an enjoyable experience on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Today's update also includes a fix for a bug that could cause the keyboard to freeze when commenting and a fix for an issue that caused the app to crash after adding an account on iOS 7.

YouTube can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

That giant red bar with tiny icons at the top is a ridiculous use of space. That underscores for me the fundamental problem with tablets, there is so little real thought put into the form factor. Just scale stuff up and spread it out.
That's not because of tablets, it's because Google wants to use the app to push material design from Android but MD is ugly and wastes space.

Cool. And now get rid of the material design on iOS and we have a nice app.
