The YouTube app brings millions of videos to
your iPhone for you to watch and share with
friends, as well as letting you upload your own
videos directly from your iPhone. Upon launching the app
and signing in, YouTube will be able to start registering what
you’re watching to make video recommendations in the
future. The main left menu is broken down into four sections;
the first is based around your account, where you can get
recommendations, manage your own YouTube channel and
subscriptions, and check out your viewing history. Next is the
Playlists section, where you can view and manage all of your
created YouTube playlists. Next is the Subscriptions list, where
you can view the latest content from channels that you have
subscribed to as well as browse other channels. Finally is the
Best of YouTube section, where you can browse for popular
content broken down into various categories such as Music,
Sports and Gaming. To upload a video to YouTube, tap on the
My Channel icon, then tap Upload. You can select clips from
your iPhone’s camera roll to upload.
