YouTube updated its iOS app over the weekend with native support for the layout and resolutions of the latest 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro displays, but as noted on Twitter and Reddit, the home indicator now overlaps the bottom menu bar.

Two steps forward, one step backward for now, but hopefully Google addresses this issue in a subsequent update to the app. On the iPhone X and newer, the menu bar is positioned slightly higher as to not overlap with the home indicator.

Spotify also recently updated its iOS and watchOS apps with native support for the 2018 iPad Pro, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4.

Update: YouTube has fixed the menu bar issue in a February 2 update.

It’s so weird to me. There are still so many apps where the home indicator gets in the way. I personally don’t understand why we need that line there all the time. For the first week it’s maybe helpful, but now over a year in?

At this point I’d trust a google app as much as I’d trust a facebook app. None of their crap is getting installed on anything I own.

For lots of people, it is their first week with that gesture, especially on iPad.

I'd think they would've made it like the iPhone where there's extra space on the screen exclusively for the home bar.
