How to Get YouTube ReVanced on iOS

Devendra Chande

YouTube Vanced was a popular modded version of the YouTube app for Android that offered features like ad-blocking, background playback, and sponsor skipping. However, in March 2022, the developers of YouTube Vanced announced that the project would be discontinued due to legal reasons. This left many users looking for alternatives, especially those on iOS who never had access to YouTube Vanced in the first place.

Enter YouTube ReVanced – the spiritual successor to YouTube Vanced. ReVanced is a modified version of the official YouTube app that brings many of the beloved features of Vanced to Android users. Some key features of YouTube ReVanced include:

  • Background Playback: Allows you to continue listening to YouTube videos while using other apps or when your phone screen is off
  • Ad-Free Viewing: Removes all advertisements from YouTube for uninterrupted viewing
  • Customizable Settings: Lets you change playback speed, default video quality, enable dark mode, etc.
  • Picture-in-Picture (PiP) Mode: Watch YouTube videos in a floating window while multitasking on your device

Unfortunately, just like its predecessor, YouTube ReVanced is only available as an APK file for Android devices. There is no official YouTube ReVanced app for iOS. However, iPhone and iPad users looking for a YouTube app with Vanced-like features have some alternative options.
