2 issues with full screen

1. Clock/time still visible on screen
2. When multitasking, full screen button only fills multitask pane, doesn’t actually go full screen.

Anyone?

1. Watching Youtube right now and full screen is full screen. No clock/time unless I touch the screen.
2. When multitasking, Youtube fills full screen but places other pane in front of Youtube.

It is weird, on my iPad Air 2, the gestures for youtube on safari change almost every year or so. Latest change was from two fingers outward and a two finger pinch to trigger full-screen and not full-screen respectively. Now it is to click the full-screen icon(no gestures to trigger full screen I guess) and a swipe down to not full screen. Why does it always change do you think?

If you go to the App Store and type ‘YouTube’ in the search, you should get an update button. That’s what I had to do.
There was no update button so I uninstalled the app and downloaded it again - now working!

I wonder if I have other apps that I should reinstall!

Is there a way to get the pinch to zoom feature on the iPad YouTube app in full screen mode that’s available on the iPhone YouTube app?

No, I know. It’s just strange they’d allow the feature on the iPhone but not on the iPad.
Yeah, it’s always been that way (for most apps/developers). I’m not a dev myself, so I can’t speak from firsthand experience, but I’d imagine iPhone downloads are several factors higher than those of iPads.
