The launch of iOS 7 is edging ever closer, and it’s about time that developers started updating their apps — which is exactly what Google has done with the latest YouTube update.

The update brings the YouTube for iOS app inline with the new design direction of iOS 7, although its beauty is more than just skin deep.

In the latest release, gestures have taken centre stage allowing you to get back to the main menu from anywhere within the app with a simple swipe from the side.

The YouTube app has now reached version 2.0, proving that this a massive update for Google’s app, and not just an aesthetics change.

Other improvements include:

Watch a video while searching for the next one, just like picture-in-picture

Search for playlists and use the “play all” button for endless entertainment

You can download the YouTube app from the App Store now.
