    Default YouTube Gets Updated to Take Advantage of iPhone 6/6 Plus Resolutions, Facebook Too


    Google's YouTube application for iOS was updated on Wednesday with newfangled support for the higher retina HD display resolutions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Apple's iPhone 6 holds a resolution of 326 PPI in a 4.7-inch display, while the iPhone 6 Plus holds a resolution of 401 PPI in a 5.5-inch display.

    Version 2.13 of the YouTube application is available right now in the iOS App Store with not only the new support for Apple's latest iPhones, but also some additional improvements to fix bugs and improve overall stability of the application for users.

    For example, a fix for the Status Bar overlapping the YouTube application interface has been implemented and a fix for keyboard orientation problems has been implemented. Google also notes that they've made the media scrubber much more responsive for more accurate video scrubbing and that you can now see all of your playlists when adding videos.

    In addition to YouTube, Facebook has also updated their social networking application for iOS to take advantage of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus retina HD displays.

    Existing users of the YouTube or Facebook applications for iOS will find these update under the Updates tab in the App Store application. Alternatively, you can download the latest versions of both applications from the download links below:

    No thanks, Facebook, I'll keep my old version that still allows me to send messages from my phone.

    You must be on an iPhone 5S or older. I'm not that eagerly awaiting a jailbreak for iPhone 6/ iOS 8, but I would certainly use it to fix FB and not have to use their stupid messenger app.

    FB really need to start listing what they are doing when updating their app. I'm surprised iTunes team lets them get away with that same stupid generic description. Be nice what they are fixing, adding, or deleting features for the app. Still no landscape mode either, especially for the 6 Plus

    I don't think Facebook ever heard that saying, "if it ain't broke don't fix it".

    To be honest the new app is pretty nice and you can just hide Facebook messenger in a folder. You'll still be able to access messenger from the Facebook app it just goes to the messenger app and when your done you just tap back and your right back in the Facebook app.

    It worked just fine before, I seriously don't see how it's any "faster" now.
