    Hi. I have been an Android user for sometime and I'm thinking of getting back into iOS. And I have a fairly simple question about the YouTube app on iPhone. Does Google still restrict video quality on mobile data? If yes, is there any alternative that works better than the stock Google app? Thanks.

    Just checked. There is a toggle option "Play HD only on WIFI"

    Hope this answers your concern.

    After unchecking the option, can you manually select the quality on mobile? 480, 720, 1080p, etc.? Thanks.

    Protube is fantastic app for new iphones, can put 1080p as default playback option .

    Is 64 bit also, loads up instantly and streaming performance is amazing and honestly alot better then the Google Youtube app

    Gotta agree with @Daiphoneboss. It's the best YouTube client in the AppStore especially for the 6 Plus.. It has landscape support. And the interface is pretty slick..

    No, you can't. But YouTube is pretty good at to automatically set the highest possible quality based on your current bandwidth.

    Tried it but unfortunately it doesn't let me view my history properly. I can only access on ProTube history from the stock YouTube app/site. If I watch a video on ProTube it doesn't add it to the watch history. Tweeted the developer and gotten no response.

    Try tubex and see if it does what you want with the history. Its a great app and free. I still miss Mctube, it let you cache videos. But then they had to remove the feature and just closed up shop after that.
