    Grrr, what is Google's problem? I have unlimited mobile 3G and 4G, I don't need restrictions!

    Once the jailbreak is released, install 3G/4G unrestrictor. It tricks your phone into thinking it's on wifi ;)

    I only use wifi for youtube anyway, so this is good news. I've been waiting for this feature.

    It is sad... Youtube app on Android only gives you option to choose from HD or no HD. iOS version gives you option to choose different quality.

    What's worse is that it still isn't updated for iOS 7! :(

    Use the safari version, you can pick HQ in the bottom left hand of the video.

    What do you mean? It runs fine on iOS 7 and the changelog said iOS 7 specific changes are in the latest release.

    Still uses iOS 6 APIs and UI elements. It isn't an "official" iOS 7 app. It hasn't been updated for new APIs.

    McTube was updated today to iOS 7 and supports any quality setting over 3G/LTE you can also set it to automatically pick whatever quality setting you want.
    The official app is always going to be a bad choice because they refuse to implement background playback and care more about promoting videos you probably don't want to watch over your subscriptions (it defaults to showing "what to watch" over subscriptions on launch they removed the option to change this months ago) and will randomly push video ads on you.

    99% of the updated apps still support iOS 6. But Youtube does support the iOS 7 api. Apps don't have to adopt the same exact look as stock apps. There is no requirement to do so and that has little to do with the iOS 7 APIs.

    It still shows the iOS 6 keyboard, and it doesn't seem to take any specific advantages of iOS 7.

    I can't find the setting to change the playback quality, am I being stupid?

    I gave up on the official YouTube app years ago, been using Jasmine as the replacement.

    Read the changelog. It's been updated to work with IOS 7 since the previous version.

    No new keyboard = no iOS7, they are still using the old version of xcode.

    While that's true, would using the new keyboard improve the app in any meaningful way?

    Old keyboard, no swipe gestures, and it still has the same overall look. It was updated so it wouldn't crash on iOS 7, but it wasn't updated or redesigned for iOS 7.

    There's no rule that apps have to look like stock apps. And Youtube has swipe gestures (has had them before iOS 7 came out). You can swipe to bring up the navigation, you can swipe a video down to multitask in the app, and you can swipe a video off the screen. I wouldn't expect to see a re-design of Youtube unless it matches the Android counterpart. Plus, Youtube's design is already close to the iOS 7 stock apps design anyways.

    Consistency is a pretty meaningful thing to me.

    What I mean by swipe gestures is that when you swipe from the very edge of the screen, it take you to the last video/homepage. Every app updated for iOS 7 has this built in. While parts of the app were updated to run on iOS 7, it hasn't been fully upgraded yet. And I never want to see that grey skeuomorphic keyboard again.

    Ah, so mainly a subjective personal preference type of thing. That works.
