This feature is available on the iPad, but if you want to run it on an iPhone, you have to pay. One of the most notable features on iOS 14 is picture-in-picture. Simply put, this feature will minimize the video window playing back to the corner of the screen. It allows you to watch movies while running other applications.
This feature has appeared on Android versions for a long time, but until now, only on iOS. Not having to watch a movie in full screen lets you do multiple tasks at the same time. On the iPhone, however, the PiP has major limitations.
PiP on iPhone won’t work with free YouTube accounts. If you want to use this feature, you’ll have to sign up for a YouTube Premium account. It is a service that allows viewers to skip ads, listen to music in the background, and download videos.
Surprisingly, YouTube doesn’t block the PiP feature consistently on iOS 14. If you open a browser, go to a website that embeds a YouTube video and exit, the iPhone can still display the PiP video. On iPad, you can also watch PiP YouTube videos without needing a Premium account.
According to The Verge, it is not clear whether this is a bug or YouTube deliberately restrained users from taking advantage of this feature on iPhone. It should be noted that even on the iPad, to view the PiP you have to open it via Safari, but if you open directly from the app, you will need a Premium account.
After Apple officially released iOS 14, on some technology forums and iOS user community, a series of responses showed that iOS 14 caused the device to heat up and drain the battery. Many people also reported that after updating iOS 14, the Home swipe was not hidden in the game, so it was annoying. Currently, Apple has not commented on this error.
