    Find the 'YouTube' icon on the 'Home screen'.
    In this example, the 'Home screen' is customized and might look a bit different. The icon is red framed with a triangle inside of a white square that looks like a TV screen. Tap it once to open the application.

  5. 5
    Find a video you are interested in.
    Opening the application should have automatically taken us to the 'What to watch' page which will be either specifically recommended videos we've watched (if we're signed in), or if we're not signed in, it will be the most watched or most popular videos on YouTube at that time. We can refer to the article on how to sign in with 'YouTube' on the iPhone 6 if we don't know how to sign in.

    Choose what quality you would like to watch the video in.
    I recommend using the 'Auto' option, especially if you're on a mobile device. Sometimes we might want the lower qualities so the video will load quicker, or the higher qualities if it's a high definition video.
