YouTube is the gateway to stream tons of music for free. Plus the relatively fast and steady speed of the courtesy of Google Server, it makes one of the no-brainer choice for music enthusiast. Alas, the dedicated iOS YouTube Apps doesn’t allow user to play music in the background. The fly in the ointment is something not cool!
The workaround is rather simple and straightforward. We have to abandon the YouTube Apps and head for the internet browser instead.
Visit YouTube via Safari/Chrome and you would be landed on the mobile version of YouTube. Play any song you like and exit to the home screen or switch to any other Apps. Don’t worry, the music would stop or more precisely pause anyway.
Now swipe up the screen to open the control center, and hit the play button. The selected song would continue playing and viola. Now you can do anything with you iPad or iPhone while listening to YouTube music in the background.
