What is Cercube?
Cercube is one of the most popular tweaks for the YouTube app. It offers a lot of useful features such as blocking ads, downloading videos up to 4k quality, converting videos to audio, enabling background playback and Picture-in-Picture mode, or auto-reply videos.
When you are running a jailbroken environment you can install Cercube tweak directly on the App Store YouTube app. Otherwise, download Cercube IPA and install it on any other device running iOS 13, iOS 14, iOS 15, or iOS 16. The IPA file contains the YouTube app and Cercube.
When you will install the popular YouTube tweak for iOS you will find a new wrench icon in the navigation top bar. Once taped you will access all settings provided by Cercube 5. Toggle on background playback (useful when playing music),automatically replay videos when they finish playing, block in-app ads, and video ads, and select video quality for WiFi and Mobile Data.
From here you can also select the default tab to always open when launching the YouTube app, hide the original download button under the video player, hide the original cast button in the top navigation bar, hide the PiP button under the video player, and configure the tab visibility (toggle on or off) and arrangement by long pressing on any item and moving it along.
One of the most demanding features of the YouTube app, to enhance the overall user experience, is an option to download videos for offline viewing. Cercube 5 allows you to download videos of up to 4k quality to the Camera Roll, and convert videos to audio files.
To download a YouTube video on your iPhone using Cercube 5 simply tap on the three dots icon displayed under the video, and from available options select Cercube. The tweak will ask you about the video quality and format to download. All files (audio and video) will be accessible from the Downloads section. You can quickly access it from the bottom navigation bar.
When you installed Cercube 5 via the Repository on a jailbroken device, you can update the tweak by searching for the package in Cydia and update it from there. Cercube will prompt a message in the YouTube app when an update was released. If you sideloaded the Cercube IPA, then you have to download the latest IPA file of Cercube from this page and re-install it.
Cercube for YouTube is a partially free tweak and it requires you to log in to the Cercube account. To access some features such as the Downloads and favorites videos section, or use the option to download YouTube videos you must make an $18 donation. If you don't own an account you can create one from the tweak. If this is too expensive try YouTube++ or uYou.
uYou tweak is packed with the same features for free! Remove YouTube Ads, enable background playback for YouTube videos, download Videos/Audio/Shorts for offline playback (4K video is also supported),and play videos in PiP (Picture In Picture). uYou tweak is the best free alternative for Cercube 5. No jailbreak required.
Is Cercube better or uYou?
Both tweaks are amazing and offer similar features for the YouTube app. The main difference between the two is that Cercube 5 requires registration and it is a paid tweak and uYou was released as absolutely for free. Both support the latest version of the YouTube app.
